Belle and Sebastian

"Sheet Music" 


For visitors:

Firstly, if you've come here from an external link, this page contains guitar chords for most released and some unreleased B&S songs. They're transcribed by members of the Belle and Sebastian mailing list, "Sinister". They're a bit higgledy-piggedly but that's because we are too. If you like them, or like us, why don't you take a look at the mailing list home page as well, or pop along to the list archives and have a little snoop.

The Tabs

The Sinister mailing list has big bag full of guitar tabs/chords for Belle and Sebastian songs - these are included here for anyone interested. It's always hard choosing between different people's versions, and we get sent lots, so apologies to anyone who sent in chords and they're not here: in some cases it's first come first served, in others I arbitrarily pick whatever looks more complete. And yes I understand this is open to interpretation, and mine is often wrong: if you have an alternate version, I suggest you mail the person whose name is on the version below and see if you can both agree on a new set of chords, then send them back to me together. Then you both get your names in lights :) It's quite hard to manage this so please don't mail me and say "these chords are better" - I can't decide for you and I'll end up crying in the corner.

Right now, Damon The Enforcer has kindly volunteered to take care of any new contributions. He's just finished sorting them out for Fold Your Wotsits, so you'll find them below. The lovely Damon is at:
