I Know It's Over

"I'll never forget when [Morrissey] did that. It's one of the highlights of my life. It was that good, that strong. Every line he was hinting at where he was going to go. I was thinking, 'Is he going to go there? Yes, he is!' It was just brilliant."

- Johnny Marr

I have uploaded a Guitar Pro tab file here.

Here are the scans from the Complete Chord Dictionary:

Here are the scans from the Queen Is Dead piano book, with guitar chord boxes:

pljnr does a spot perfect rendition here, with his own backing track. He also includes the chords he's using in his Youtube annotations, which is nice:

Here's a great bass cover by orestes3009:

Stretch Out And Wait

"'Stretch Out' I think, is in open G tuning: D,G,D,G,B,G."

- Johnny Marr

From the quote above, Marr says he 'thinks' the song is in open G, but the general consensus is that it's actually in open E. For instance, Headmaster Ritual is definitely in open E, and Johnny would sometimes play Stretch Out And Wait immediately afterwards, on the same guitar.

I do have a Guitar Pro tab file that I have uploaded here(right click to save as). This is a really accurate transcription to my ears, in the correct tuning(!). marrzipan also transcribed his version and I have included it in this same zip file. These versions are both in open E, but they are both different.

Here is the complete score from the "Louder Than Bombs:Off The Record" book:

Here's marrzipan's version. This is one of the very few versions of the song on youtube that are played in open E, as marr played it. So cool!

Here's a very nice acoustic version by 3rd Monty Effects:

Here's a cool cover by theglimpse, who also plays the song in open E:

barjabulon covers a short snippet here, very well:

And here is the Smiths playing live on June 29, 1985. Here we can see that Marr has his telecaster tuned up to open E:
