Bauhaus - Stigmata Martyr tab version 2

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             STIGMATA MARTYR by Bauhaus
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From their debut "In the Flat Field" (1980). The meat of this song relies on heavy 
distortion, harmonics and muting. There is really only one chord progression, but the 
combination of that with the harmonic effects gives it a really massive sound.

Tuning: Standard


"( )" denote harmonics; lay finger over the strings and let them sound without pressing 
on them.

Repeat patterns throughout song. Lyrics: In a crucifixion ecstasy Lying cross chequed in agony Stigmata bleed continuously Holes in head, hands, feet, and weep for me Stigmata, oh you sordid sight Stigmata in your splintered plight Look into your crimson orifice In holy remembrance In scarlet bliss In nomine patri et filii et spiriti sanctum In nomine patri et filii et spiriti sanctum In nomine patri et filii et spiriti sanctum In nomine patri et filii et spiriti sanctum Father, son, and holy ghost Stigmata martyr
