Chords of Visage songs - Thu, 11 Aug 2005 15:03:00

High friends, can any of you help me with chords or tabs of Visage songs? I can`nt get any (satisfaction) on the web. I`m especially interested in "Oh, my Visage" but I want to even try some other songs. Tried some chords of Ultravox I found in this forum and I was VERY excited! Thanks for your help.

I think you got the name wrong - is it the song Visage you mean?

Anyway, Nils made a great collection of chords for Ultravox songs, mayby he can repost them here?

Yes, you´re right, the song name is really "Visage" but when I talk about it with some musicians I usually use "Oh my Visage" ´cause it sounds great...
Well any post is apreciated...

Chords for Fade to Grey:

Verse (sounds best picked rather than strummed to me)

Dm
one man on a lonely platform
F Am
one case sitting on his side
Dm
two eyes starin cold and silent
F Am
shows fear as he turns to hide

Chorus (plays best as a choppy funky rhythm with C as A Bar on the 3rd fret, Em as a D bar on the 2nd fret and Am as an E Bar on the 5th fret)

C Em Am
ahh ahhh we fade to gray
C Em Am
ahh ahhh we fade to gray

Dm
feel the rain like an english summer
F Am
hear the notes from a distant song
Dm
stepping out from a back drop poster
F Am
wishing life wouldnt be so long

C Em Am
ahh ahhh we fade to gray
C Em Am
ahh ahhh we fade to gray

Hi!
Here's the thread Ole suggested: The "How to play it" thread

Sorry, but the only Visage track where I know how to play it has already been posted... :rolleyes:

Tim - yes please! laugh

If you'd be so kind as to scan at 300dpi and email it to me at ev@ultravox.org.uk, I'll add it to the Media Archive for everyone to see - along with the early Ultravox! sheet music that Mike C has kindly supplied. smile

Thank you!
Cerise.
