Additions, corrections welcome!
Tabbing this would have been a lot easier if I'd had my friends' video
with a zoom and slow motion!


                          SHE SELLS SANCTUARY
                          ===================
                              The Cult


Tune your guitar up a semitone (seems a common feature of goth songs!)
I can't get their tone on my setup, but it helps to use the front two pickups
and turn the treble right down on the amp.

I have a suspicion the song is based on some species of sliding Em scale,
which means there could be better ways of fingering a lot of the notes
or putting in slides in different places. You'll just have to work out what
sounds good/is easy to play yourself! For the time being I'll put brackets
round notes when I'm not sure where they're played, or if they're not always
played every time, or if I can't tell which is played!

INTRO

The least accurate part of the tab first... played with phasing and repeat
pedals so you can't work it out...

On the beats marked with an asterisk someone strums an F chord on an accoustic
with lovely new strings!
Towards the end of the song the riff is played again with the alternative
ending.

Verse 1 (touch the sun etc)
Sounds like someone's playing a palm-muted F power chord in the verses and
strumming different strings, kind of like

e                     6  6
B                     6  6

The fire in your eyes keepsme alive
And somehow(Where?) you'll find Sanctuary...
And the world drags me down

'Sanctuary' sung, another riff played in background

1st half of intro played
Riff A with the alternative ending
1st half of intro played again at very end!

There's a man playing a violin, and the strings are the nerves in his own arm.
