Girlfriend In A Coma Tab

   
Song:  Girlfriend in A Coma
Artist:  The Smiths
Tabbed by:  Matt Taylor

I've seen a few versions of this on the net, all close, but not quite right.  This is 
a great song, I had to try to fix it.  I love how Marr's happy little guitar part 
with Morrissey's disturbing lyrics.  Here's how I play it which I think is fairly spot on:

There are basically two parts, the verse chord progeression:

     G        Gmaj7    C        D
e|---3-3------3-3-3----0-0------2-2-2h3-----------------------------|
B|---3-3------3-3-3----1-1------3-3-3-------------------------------|
G|---0-0------3-3-3----0-0------2-2-2-------------------------------|
D|---0-0------4-4-4----2-2------0-0-0-------------------------------|
A|---2-2------5-5-5----3-3------0-0-0-------------------------------|
E|---3-3------3-3-3----x-x------x-x-x-------------------------------|

Paly around with the rhythm, I throw in open strings between chords and hammer-ons here 
there just to mix it up.  Also, that Gmaj7 can be played several ways, try differet 
to see which suits you best.

Throughout the verses, Marr throws in a little lead something like this:

e|-----------------------------|
B|-----------------------------|
G|--9-9-7-7-10-10-9-7------7---|
D|--------------------9h10-----|
A|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------|
B|--12-12-10-10-13-13-12-10-------10---|
G|--------------------------11h12------|
D|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|

And the Chorus (Do you really think...):

     Em       Em7     C       Cadd9
e|----0-0-0----3-3----0-0-0----3-3----------------------------------|
B|----0-0-0----3-3----1-1-1----3-3----------------------------------|
G|----0-0-0----0-0----0-0-0----0-0----------------------------------|
D|----2-2-2----2-2----2-2-2----2-2----------------------------------|
A|----2-2-2----2-2----3-3-3----3-3----------------------------------|
E|----0-0-0----0-0----x-x-x----x-x----------------------------------|
