Manchester Music

Manchester is the heart of the UK’s music scene. And it’s hosted some legendary moments in live music including Bob Dylan’s Judas moment at the Free Trade Hall, the Sex Pistols gig at the Lesser Free Trade Hall (sparking the music careers of the Buzzcocks, Morrissey, Mark E Smith, Jay Division and Magazine), the epicentre of the house scene at the Hacienda and Oasis at Maine Road. To celebrate the great city and its music here’s a collection of Mancunian tunes I’ve tabbed and chorded:

Five Manchester Riffs: The Stone Roses – Waterfall, The Happy Mondays – Loose Fit, Joy Division – Love Will Tear Us Apart, The Chemical Brothers – Galvanize, The Fall – Wrong Place, Right Time
Happy Mondays – Step On
Stone Roses – All for One

5 Riffs: This Charming Man, Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now, What Difference Does It Make, Still Ill, Suedehead.
