The Horrors – Sea Within A Sea tab

The Horrors -  Sea Within A Sea
Tabbed by: poipoi (Pieter Candry)

This is the tab I made to the new single Sea Within A Sea by The Horrors
from their new upcoming cd ‘Primary Colours’. I did the best I could, I
figured it out all by myself, so if you have corrections/improvements that
could be made, just tell me…

IntroBass (use reverb)0.00 -G|-------------------------------|D|-----4~-------4~------4~-------|A|-------------------------------| just continue as neededE|-2-2~---2-2-2~--2-2-2~---------|

Every 4th time you play the above riff, use a slide (or any other round metal/glass object ie. tremolo bar, battery,…)
Riff1.58 – 2.13e|------------------------------------------------------------|B|------------------------------------------------------------|G|---0-0-4-6--------------------------------------------------|D|------------4tr~---4-4-5-4-------------2-------2------------|A|---------------------------4tr~--4-4-5---2tr~----2tr~-------|E|------------------------------------------------------------|After the riff, slide down again with whatever round metal object you’ve got
2.14 – 2.53Guitar 1 (tremolo + reverb+…)e|-----------------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------------|G|--11-11----------------------------------------------------|D|---------same rhythm as before-----------------------------|A|--9--9-----------------------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------------------------|
Guitar 2 (clean with reverb)e|-----------------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------------|G|--11------12-----------------------------------------------|D|-----x16-----x16-------------------------------------------|A|--9-------10-----------------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------------------------|
Guitar 3 As usual, every 4th time guitar 1 plays, or if guitar 2 has played the whole thing (so every 4 measures) slides down Play this 3 times 2.53 – 3.23 Guitar 2 continues to play here (very hard to hear), while Josh plays stuff that’s impossible to tab, I guess he hits notes behind his bridge (Jaguar…) and other random stuff, with an enormous amount of reverb and some OD and also delay
3.23 – 3.39BassG|-----------------------------------------------------|D|-----------------------------------------------------|A|-----------------------------------------------------|E|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2—x11 or so-------------------------|
Synth comes inNote: this is playable on guitar, if you use OD or turn your gain down onyour dist, use a tremolo pedal, slapback delay (very short time, and littlerepeats) and reverb3.40 – 4.26e|----------------------------------------------------------|B|----------------------------------------------------------|G|-6-----6-----6--------------------------------------------|D|---8-----8-----8—x30 approx.------------------------------|A|-----9-----9----------------------------------------------|E|----------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat the entire outro part until the end of the song, the last minute or so (listen to it), it changes to just the chords, then you just strum the chords as you were playing them, but turn off tremolo and delay. So just slight dist with reverb… This is the tab to the incredible epic song Sea Within A Sea, hopefully I’ve helped you
