Cuts You Up   --Peter Murphy, from the album "Deep"

Everyone who requested anything by Peter Murphy had this one on the list.
I really can't hear any guitar in the song, except a little strumming mixed
really low.  When I play the song, I play chords based on the bass line or I
play the strings part.

The bass goes something like this (listen to the cd for the rhythm):
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------
-3--3-3--3-5--5-5--5-7--7-7--7-7--7-7---
----------------------------------------
Then the same pattern is played descending for the chorus...

It sounds pretty good to play chords along with the bass like this:
I usually just use clean power chords....

Then the chorus goes:

You ..

etc..
This is how the song goes throughout.   Now, I like to play that cool
strings part.  This sounds right to me:

----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------
-0h2/4-7----9p7h9p7h9--4----0--2--0-----
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

----------------------------------------
----------------------------12----10--8-
-0h2/4-7----9p7h9p7h9----------12-------
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------
-0h2/4-7----9p7h9p7h9--4----0--2--0-----
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

--------------------------------
--------------------------------
-0h2/4-7-------4--9--7--4--2--0-  "I find you in the morning...."
--------------------------------

If anyone knows the treble-y sounding strummed guitar mixed really low, I'd
like to have it.  If any of this is wrong, corrections are welcome....
