Angel Tab

   
Artist - Massive Attack
Track - Angel (Mezzanine)
Tabbed by Matthew Tye

K, so it's fairly easy just incase;
This is what stuff means. / = Slide up
                          \ = Slide down
                          X = muted string

First here's the bass part which is the same through the whole song.
You can play it where it suits you, either as shown or starting on
the A# on A.

G-------------------------------------------------------------------
D-------------------------------------------------------------------
A-------------------------------------------------------------------
E---6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-8-----------------------------------------------

There's mainly samples during the verses, which you can get if you use
a lot of delay + reverb etc perhaps an E-bow and a slide if you have one.
The first guitar part, which comes in after the vocals stop the first 
time, is played like this a few times through before fading out. 
(after the line "Bring me love") It then comes in again after the line 
"Neutralize every man in sight"

e--------------------------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------------------------
G--------------------------------------------------------------------
D--------------------------------------------------------------------
A---15--15--15--15--etc----------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------------

Then the second, distorted guitar part comes in after the previous part
has built up for a while, after the line "Love ya" is repeated a bunch
of times.

e--------------------------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------------------------
G--------5/-10---17\-8---5/-10---------------------------------------
D---10---5/-10---17\-8---5/-10---------------------------------------
A---10---3/-8----15\-6---3/-8----------------------------------------
E---8----------------------------------------------------------------

The first time through you can kinda just play it like that, let the 
chords ring out but the second time you kinda have to pick at it, I 
suppose improvise and kinda hack at the chords, just hit random notes
and stuff, you've heard the song so you know what I mean, make it sound
messy. After the first time through there's this fill.

e--------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------
G---17\-X-X-X-X---17-17\-X-X-X--17\----
D---17\-X-X-X-X---17-17\-X-X-X--17\----
A---15\-X-X-X-X---15-15\-X-X-X--15\----
E-------X-X-X-X---------X-X-X----------

Then after the second it just plays the high C;
e--------
B--------
G---17---
D---17---
A---15---
E--------

Then again in the verse there's just a heap of effects, lots of delay, reverb,
just kinda ambient noises etc.

Then after the line "Come from way above" the guitar comes in and follows the
bass

e--------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------
G--------------------------------------
D---8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-10-----------------
A---8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-10-----------------
E---6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-8------------------

Then after a while another guitar comes in and plays the higher octave of that part,
starting on the 13th fret on the A string, can't be arsed to tab it out, then after 
a while again just play the high c on 15 on the A string, which I also can't be 
arsed to write down now..... you're probably not an idiot, so I'm sure you'll work it 
out, all the pieces are there, in order, just don't be fuckin stupid. Cheers.
