Most of these tabs have been collected from the now defunct Unofficial Blue Nile Website. At some point I should make a link to a downloadable version.
Guitar Tablature for Midnight Sun
David Sylvian - Midnight Sun This song is a fairly straight forward 12 bar blues in the C minor key. However in my transcription I have added sevenths and suspended notes that reflect the chords created by the piano movement on the original DBOAC track CHORDS Cm7 -x35343 C7sus4 -x35363 Cm -x35543 Fm7 -131111 Fm -133111 Gm -355333 Gm7 -353333 @ Midnight Sun Cm7 C7sus4 Cm C7sus4 Cm They've stolen the moon Cm7 The magic is gone C7sus4 And there in its place Cm A black midnight sun Fm7 The darkness is frightening Fm And love is denied Cm7 They've stolen the moon C7sus2 Cm7 God only knows why Gm The stars have lost their daughter Fm7 The devils thieves have won Cm7 And there in her place C7sus2 Gm7 A black midnight sun Solo Cm7 Fm7 Cm7 Gm Fm7 Cm Gm They've stolen the moon The magic is gone And there in its place A black midnight sun The darkness is frightening And love is denied They've stolen the moon God only knows why The stars have lost there daughter The devils thieves have won And there in her place A black midnight sun
