Subject: CORRECTED Tablature to 'People are Strange' By the doors
				People Are Strange			  
				    The Doors                             
tabbed by Mr. Shaun Timothy Krisher                                       
Okay, not only am I dyslexic, but I am tabbing from memory, and this is my
first time tabbing a song.  The chord names at the top are where your      
fingers ought to be.  I just pull off my ring finger for the A minor bit. 
Now, I hate it when people tab a song and then don't put the chord        
fingerings, and assume you know what Fm#7sus4add7 is, so I am going to    
tab out these chords as a statement to all you boneheads out there.       
So there.                                                                 
Em - 022000		Putting this bit in takes around 10-20 seconds and
Am - x02210		saves the reader about three hours of hunting for 
G  - 320003		Am6#add7.  My only hope is that you will tab out  
B  - x24442		chords yourself when you make a tablature.        
			Pretty please!                                    
 INTRO    Em ->    Am ->       Am ->	  B Em

Okay, when you go into the chorus, just strum, it gives it a nice effect.  
Maybe go distorted and do G5 (355xxx), B5 ((x244xx)or(755xxx)), and        
E5 (022xxx).  Then, keep it distorted, and do that verse riff above, as    
like a little mini solo.  Bear in mind, I'm still new to this. Well, that's
all for now.  You can find the real solo to "People are Strange" on the 
OLGA, which is God's gift to guitarists.  I put this in because Glen Word 
(the guy who put the other version of this on)asked for it.  So here it is.
Here are the lyrics which I got from a previous posting oof this song      
on the OLGA that Glen Word posted. Thanks, Glen.  Match the riff above with
the chords on the lyrics.                                    		   
Em		   Am		 Em
People are strange When you're a stranger
Am	   Em   B	    Em	   
Faces look ugly When you're alone

(End riff, then start it over on "Women")

Em	   	  Am	      Em
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Am	    Em	   B		Em
Streets are uneven when you're down

Em		    G				B
When you're strange faces come out in the rain
		    G				B
When you're strange no one remembers your name
		    B			  B			
when you're strange   when you're strange   
		    B  (Start intro and riff here)
when you're strange   All right yeah

Lastly, I want to give credit to Glen Word for putting the chords and the 
lyrics on the OLGA.  Thanks, Glen.


People are Strange
from Strange Days 
by The Doors
Transcribed and submitted by Aaron Herrnstein

This transciption is an amendment to those posted by Glen Word and 
Serge Belongie (
It works best when played with two guitars.  Start 
the song off with one guitar playing the tab I have listed
below.  At the chorus bring in a second guitar such that both are
strumming the chords as suggested by Glen Word.  Go back to the verse
and have the second guitar strumming while the first guitar plays
the tab.  At the chorus, again have both guitars strumming.  Now the 
guitar solo.  Guitar 2 strums the chords to the verse as before while
guitar one plays the solo posted and transcribed by Serge Belongie.
Finally, go back to chorus with both guitars strumming.
