"Dream On" by Depeche Mode
Words and music by Martin Gore
Tabbed by Matt Williams

This song is surprisingly easy to play once you set it
up right. Drop the low A chord diagramE MajorE
string to A chord diagramD MajorD and place a capo on the first fret.

The main riff is played like this (keeping in mind
that "1" is still the first
fret, but it is played open because of the capo)

A chord diagramE MajorE|-----------------------------|
A chord diagramBB|.---------------------------.|
A chord diagramG+G|-----------------------------|
A chord diagramD MajorD|----1-4-1-1------1-4-1-1-----|
A chord diagramA augmentedA|.--4-----4--4---4-----4--4--.|
A chord diagramD MajorD|-----------4-1----------4-1--|

This repeats throughout the song, it's basically a
cyclic alternate-picking

riff that is quite easy and fluid oncee you get the
hang of it. Listen to the
song for the meter and rythm. I just keep my middle
finger of my left hand
planted on the 4th fret of the 5th string and I use my
ring finger for the
fretting on strings 4 and 6.

Here is the bridge part:

A chord diagramG+G|----1--1---1--1-|
A chord diagramD MajorD|---1--1---1--1--|
A chord diagramA augmentedA|----------------|
A chord diagramD MajorD|--1------3------|

And the bit before Dave sings "mmm mmm"

A chord diagramE MajorE|---------------------|
A chord diagramBB|---------------------|
A chord diagramG+G|---------------------|
A chord diagramD MajorD|--------4----------4-|
A chord diagramA augmentedA|-----1-4--------1-4--|
A chord diagramD MajorD|--1-4--------1-4-----|

As always, check the song for rythm and meter.
