NOTE: If a tab has just recently been posted, the Guitar 1 part may be missing for part of the song. I might update it later, or you may have to suck it up and figure it out yourself.

Though these symbols are rarely used in Gaslight songs, here is the key for tabs:
/ slide up
\ slide down
h hammer-on
p pull-off
~ vibrato
* harmonic
x Mute note

Gaslight songs on SoS are almost always power chords. If not, they would be full barre chords (see below). The full barre chords are most often used in the verses, such as in "I Coulda Been a Contender" or "Angry Johnny."

Gm Power chord:
e|---|
B|---|
G|---|
D|-5-|
A|-5-|
E|-3-|

Gm Full barre chord:
e|-3-|
B|-3-|
G|-3-|
D|-5-|
A|-5-|
E|-3-|

When forming full barre chords, follow this template for major and minor chords:

Major chord on 6 strings:
(Major A chord)
e|-5-|
B|-5-|
G|-6-|
D|-7-|
A|-7-|
E|-5-|

Minor chord on 6 strings:
(Minor A chord)
e|-5-|
B|-5-|
G|-5-|
D|-7-|
A|-7-|
E|-5-|

Major chord on 5 strings:
(Major D chord)
e|-5-|
B|-7-|
G|-7-|
D|-7-|
A|-5-|
E|---|

Minor chord on 5 strings:
(Minor D chord)
e|-5-|
B|-6-|
G|-7-|
D|-7-|
A|-5-|
E|---|

Gaslight songs on '59 are usually standard chords or full barre chords. Personally, I think on the album they sound more like full barre chords, with the exception of the title track. However, most of them are played as standard chords when played live.

Also, often in Gaslight songs, Alex R. (lead guitar) plays the same chords as Brian (rhythm guitar), but he plays them up an octave, or on a different set of strings. Here is an example of this:

Alex R. G chord:
G|-10-|
D|-10-| this string is often muted and not fretted
A|--8-|

Brian G chord:
D|-5-|
A|-5-|
E|-3-|

On F chords while playing acoustic, as well as in several Gaslight songs, Brian will play what I like to call a -6 chord. This involves playing a full barre chord, but leaving off the 6th string.

A full F chord, normally played like this:
e|-1-|
B|-1-|
G|-2-|
D|-3-|
A|-3-|
E|-1-|

would be played like this, as an F(-6) chord:
e|-1-|
B|-1-|
G|-2-|
D|-3-|
A|-3-|
E|---|

The same rules apply for forming minor -6 chords as it does for full barre chords. An Fm(-6) chord would be played like this:
e|-1-|
B|-1-|
G|-1-|
D|-3-|
A|-3-|
E|---|

Also, while playing live or acoustic, and most likely on the albums, though I can't be certain, Brian forms his standard G chords like this:
e|-3-|
B|-1-|
G|-0-|
D|-0-|
A|-2-|
E|-3-|

This also applies to F chords played when tuned down a whole step, as most Gaslight songs are played. An F chord played down a whole step looks like a G chord, and Brian plays this with the above formation

And if you couldn't tell, all Gaslight songs are played live tuned down a whole step, though this is not always true for the albums. The Navesink Banks and Here's Looking At You, Kid are played down just a half step, though they are played live down a whole step to avoid having to retune during the show. Red At Night is played in standard tuning on the album, but is played down a whole step live, for the same reason.
