I made a tab.

---

Joy Division - Ceremony (Live) ("Still" Version)

Less developed than the eventual New Order version, but the song is there.

This tab is based on a matrix mix of an audience and soundboard recording in order to get the whole song. The soundboard, as released on "Still," starts in the middle of the second Main Riff.


The structure of the song goes:

Intro

Main Riff

Verse

Main Riff

Riff 2

Riff 3

Main Riff

Riff 4

Ending

 

Intro:

 

E|---------------------------------------8-8-8-0--8-

B|---------------------------------------8-8-8-0--8-

G|---------------------------------------------9--9-

D|------7-5--------------7-5-------------------10-10

A|--5-7-----5-7---575757-----5-7---57577------------

E|--------------------------------------------------

 

Main Riff (Listen to the song for exact timing and strumming):

 

E|--0--0--8--8

B|--0--0--8--8

G|--9--9--9--9

D|--10-10-10-10

A|-------------

E|-------------

 

Verse (Starts at about 1:20, repeat the arpeggio while switching between each mini-riff):

 

E|--8~~0~~---------------------------------

B|--8~~0~~---------------------------------

G|--9~~9~~---------------------------------

D|--10~10~----9-8------9-8-----------------

A|----------------9~-------9~----99-9--99-9

E|----------7---------7--------7------7----

 

Riff 2 (Starts at 2:51):

 

E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

G|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------0

A|--7-5-7-5-5/10-10-8-7-5-7-5-7-5-7-7-5-7-5--7-5-7-5-5/10-10-8-7-5-7-5-7-5-7-7-5-7-5

E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Riff 3 (Starts at 3:04):

 

E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

G|--7/9-7-9-7-12-12-10-9-7-9-7-9-7-9-9-7-9-7--7/9-7-9-7-12-12-10-9-7-9-7-9-7-9-9-7-9-7

D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Riff 4 (Starts at 3:59, repeat the D, G, and B note sequence until 4:49 where you slowly stop):

 

E|----------------------------------

B|---------8~------8~-----8~------8~

G|-------9~------9~-----9~------9~--

D|----10~-----10~----10~-----10~----

A|--8-------------------------------

E|----------------------------------

 

Ending (Start at 5:35):

 

E|-----------------------------------------------------------------8~-

B|-----------------------------------------------------------------8~-

G|-----------------------------------------------------------------9~-

D|-----------------------------------------------------------------10~

A|--7-5-7-5-5/10-10-8-7-5-7-5-7-5-7-7-5-7-5--7-5-7-5-5/10-10-8-7-5----

 

E|--------------------------------------------------------------------

as an (ex-) musician (punk DIY - bass/vocals & drums-tried to learn notes later) i think you've started a brilliant thread which should be kept thriving for all auto-didactic members among us!

I thought about calling this thread "Joy Division Guitar Tabs," because I could probably do some more. I'm getting to the point where I can actually figure some of these songs out by ear, now. We don't have tabs for every song.

I play keyboard a lot and I've figured out Ian's vocal melodies on that by ear, and listening to it, I think I'm pretty much spot on.
