The Stranglers Chord Sheets, With the Odd Bit of Tab


There's not a lot of tab, nor many chord books available for Stranglers music. Here is my, admittedly, low quality effort at putting some out.

It's all pretty low quality but should be enough to give you an idea as to what chords to strum along with, The following has been worked out over the last 10 years or so and concentrates on the Hugh era material (John Ellis is just too complicated for me)! It has all been done for my personal use and is only my interpretation of what is being played. If anyone has other Chords and Tabs let me know and I will post them here.



Good News!! John Hall of the excellent Orange Alert has agreed to supply lots of chords for this page - check 'en out below!
