Staralfur - Sigur Ros


Most of this was worked out using
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zn8j4LxQAMQ
although the song order is different to the cd.
Just to confuse you I've kept the original order.
Also the video is in E and not the half note up on the cd.

*this version is intended to be an acoustic version really but I've added some other bits too.

There's a video of exactly how I play it here (capo on 1st fret):

Pre-Intro:

violins start with:

E--12---------|--14----------------| x2B--14---------|--15----------------|G-(14)--------|-(14)---------------|D-(14)--------|--12----------------|A--12---------|--------------------|
These are also the verse chords but you can just play A and D basically. Then for the intro you could play
-0----5----3----2--|-2----2----9---10------|-2-----------------|-3---------------------|-2-----------------|-2---------------------|-2-----------------|-0---------------------|-0-----------------|-----------------------|-x-----------------|-----------------------|
or on an acoustic this sounds really good: | A | A7 A7add11 | (A7add 11 = x02022) | D | Dmaj7 D | Piano bit that goes on top:
A|e--------17-------17-------|--------------17----------||B--14-------14-------14----|-14----14--------14----14-||G-(2)-14-------14-------14-|----14----14--------14----||D-(2)----------------------|--------------------------||A--0-----------------------|--------------------------||E--------------------------|--------------------------|
D|e--------17-------17-------|--------------17----------||B--15-------15-------15----|-15----15--------15----15-||G-(2)-14-------14-------14-|----14----14--------14----||D--0-----------------------|--------------------------||A--------------------------|--------------------------||E--------------------------|--------------------------|

I play A) starálfur Back to the intro over | A | A7 A7add11 | D | Dmaj7 D | x2 etc A D Opna augun stírurnar úr A D* trygi mig og tel (hvort ég sé ekki) A D kommin aftur og alltalltilæ A D C#dim samt ventar eitthvað G D*** ***Here I play the D for most of the bar eins og alla veggina then Dsus2, D, Dsus4 quickly before the instrumental to mimic the orchestra The instrumental interplay: | A | Asus2 A | D | D/C# | Bm | | G | D/F# | A | | A7 | D | D Dsus4 D | | D/C# | Then the orchestra plays the refrain chords, followed by | D G/D D | G | G | G D | D | A7 | D/F# | x2 (actual bar timing a bit sketchy) Then A** G G/F# ur stað - - sjalfur G D starálfur Notes: For acoustics sake: C#dim- x4535x (he plays the C# bass while the orchestra plays the remainder) I use 3x0003 for G G/D chord at the end is xx0033 G/F# 2x0033
