You only need to use the E and B (high) strings to play Alice, so that's all
I'll Show.

Intro... Riff A.
||-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
||-8-0-0--7-0-0--5-0--3-5-5-3-5-0-0--------------------------------------------

Riff B:
||-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
||--8-0-0--7-0-0--5-0-0--3-0-0--2-0-3-0--0-2-3-2-------------------------------
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/sisters_of_mercy/alice_tab.html ]
Riff C:
||--8-0-0--7-0-0--5-0-0--3-0-0--5-0-0--7-0-0-----------------------------------
||-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Riff D:
||-----7-----7-----------7---7-7-7-7-5-----------------------------------------
||--5-----5-----5-5-5--5---------------7---------------------------------------

The Sequence with which these are played is:
The Intro is played 4 times and then it goes into the main song:

Riff B    x4
Riff C    x2
Riff B    x2
Riff D    x1

This sequence just keeps going for the rest of the song.

The problems are:
	a) If your guitar is tuned differently it will sound bad.
	b) You need some kind of chorus to fill out the sound.
	c) This is from the 12". The live versions are quite different.
	   Wayne had a tendency to embellish them a little bit.

> For the chorus pary, I was always under the impression that Hussey played a B bar chord
