Tina Dico - Sacre Coeur
-----------------------

Tuning is G#D#G#C#D#G# which is DADGAD with Capo at 6th fret (sometimes she also plays 
it at 7th fret). There are different versions of this song played live. Would have 
never figured it out if there weren´t a version available where she tunes her guitar.

Chords (nevermind their names, they´re more or less randomly just to give them a name). 
Note the muted strings (x) for strummed chords.

E*        x12000    Ab5         000200

Verse
-----

This is the general picking during the verses:

          p       p        p       p
    |----------------|----------------|
    |--0------0~----0|--0------0~----0|  h = hammer on
    |---0-------0--0-|---0-------0--0-|  p = pull off
    |----20~-----20--|----30~-----30--|  ~ = let ring
    |1~-----3~-------|5~-----5~-------|
    |----------------|----------------|
     E*     Gb*       Abm*

Note that within this tab each column or character represents a 16th note to give you 
the rythm and that for example "20~" along with the "p" means to hit the 2 for one 
16th, then pull off to 0 andlet it ring for additional two 16th.

This progression is varied from time to time, for example to something like this:

          p       p        p       p                  p       p        p       p
    |----------------|----------------|         |----------------|----------------|
    |--0------0~----0|---------0~----0|         |---------0~----0|---------------0|
    |---0-------0--0-|-----------0--0-| or this |-----------0--0-|--------------0-|
    |----20~-----20--|----30~-----30--|         |----20~-----20--|----30~-----30--|
    |1~-----3~-------|5~5~---5~-------|         |1~~----3~-------|5~5~---5~5~5----|
    |----------------|----------------|         |----------------|----------------|
     E*     Gb*       Abm*                         E*     Gb*       Abm*

     or this:

          p       p        p       pp                 p       p        p       p
    |----------------|----------------|         |----------------|----------------|
    |--0------0~----0|--0------0~-----|         |--0------0~----0|--0------0~-----|
    |---0-------0--0-|---0-------0----| or this |---0-------0--0-|---0-------0----|
    |----20~-----20--|----30~-----320~|         |----20~-----20--|----30~-----30--|
    |1~-----3~-------|5~-----5~-------|         |1~-----3~-------|5~-----5~-----5~|
    |----------------|----------------|         |----------------|----------------|
     E*     Gb*       Abm*                         E*     Gb*       Abm*

You can also play other combinations of these pattern. Just get the rythm and play with it.

Sometimes (2. verse) she hits the empty lowest (6th) string hard with her thumb along 
the first "5~" in this pattern to give it an accent:

           p       p        p       p
    |----------------|----------------|
    |--0------0~----0|--0------0~----0|
    |---0-------0--0-|---0-------0--0-|
    |----20~-----20--|----30~-----30--|
    |1~-----3~-------|5~~----5~-------|
    |----------------|0~~~~~~~~-------|
     E*     Gb*       Abm*/G#

Or reduce this pattern to single bass notes on 4th and 5th string (3. verse).
If you can sing like her you can also just stop playing guitar at all and just sing ;-)

At the beginning or in some versions, where she does a short break between
the verses, at the beginning of each verse she hammers on the first note:

 <------------- verse 1 -----------------><---------------------- verse 2 ----------------------->
     h    p       p                                         h    p       p        p       p
    |----------------|...|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|...|
    |--0------0~----0|...|----------------|----------------|--0------0~----0|--0------0~----0|...|
    |---0-------0--0-|...|----------------|----------------|---0-------0--0-|---0-------0--0-|...|
    |----20~-----20--|...|----------------|----------------|----20~-----20--|----30~-----30--|...|
   0|1~-----3~-------|...|5~~~~~----------|---------------0|1~-----3~-------|5~-----5~-------|...|
    |----------------|...|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|...|
     E*     Gb*           Abm*                              E*     Gb*       Abm*

 Without the break it can look like this:

 <-------------- verse 1 -----------------><------------- verse 2 -------------->
     h    p       p            p       p   h    p       p        p       p
    |----------------|...|----------------|----------------|----------------|...|
    |--0------0~----0|...|--0------0~-----|--0------0~----0|--0------0~----0|...|
    |---0-------0--0-|...|---0-------0----|---0-------0--0-|---0-------0--0-|...|
    |----20~-----20--|...|----30~-----30--|----20~-----20--|----30~-----30--|...|
   0|1~-----3~-------|...|5~-----5~-----0~|1~-----3~-------|5~-----5~-------|...|
    |----------------|...|----------------|----------------|----------------|...|
     E*     Gb*       Abm*                   E*     Gb*       Abm*

The last time time she plays this pattern before the refrain she uses a C# as a bass note:

          p       p        p
    |----------------|----------------|
    |--0------0~----0|----------------|
    |---0-------0--0-|----------------|
    |----20~-----20--|----30~---------|
    |1~-----3~-------|5~~~---5~~~~~---|
    |----------------|5~~~---5~~~~~---|
     E*     Gb*       Abm*/C#

-------
Refrain
-------

For the refrain there are two different versions as it can be picked or strummed. Let´s 
deal with the picked version first. It is build around the same chords just in another order.

          p       p        pp      p               p       p        pp      p
    |----------------|----------------|      |----------------|----------------|
    |--0------0~----0|--0------0~----0|      |--0------0~-----|--0------0~-----|
    |---0-------0--0-|---0-------0--0-|  or  |---0-------0----|---0-------0----|
    |----30~-----20--|----320-----20--|      |----30~-----20--|----320-----20--|
    |5~-----3~-------|1~~----3~-------|      |5~-----3~-----3~|1~~----3~-----3~|
    |----------------|----------------|      |----------------|----------------|
     Abm*   Gb*       E*     Gb*              Abm*   Gb*       E*     Gb*


Both variants are interchangeble, so you might also play the first bar of the first 
version with the second bar of the second version and vice versa.

This pattern is played twice until "haunted" and then it continuous with:

          pp      p        p       p        p                            <---  strum -|
    |----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|-------------|
    |--0------0~----0|--0------0~-----|--0-------------|----------------|-------------|
    |---0-------0--0-|---0-------0----|---0------------|----------------|-------------|
    |----320-----20--|----30~-----20--|----20~---------|----------------|0~~~~~~------|
    |1~-----3~-------|5~-----1~-------|1~--------------|1~~~~~~3~-------|-------------|
    |----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|-------------|
     E*     Gb*       Abm*   E*                                Gb*       Ab5

In the last measure and on the "coeur" she starts to strum the bridge with the chord 
progression of

    Ab5 - Ab7sus4 - Emaj7(no5) - Ab7sus4 - Ab5 - Ab7sus4 - Emaj7(no5)

Listen to the song to get the rythm. The strummed version of the refrain is played like 
this as well. See below in the complete song for the strummed refrain.

Now here´s the complete song:
-----------------------------

Intro (picked)
    E* Gb* Abm* (repeat several times with different patterns)

Verses 1+2

    E*       Gb*               Abm*
    Poison racing through my veins
    E*       Gb*         Abm*
    A sordid pull to the insane
    E*           Gb*        Abm*
    A constant gravity to change
    E*       Gb*               Abm*
    And I don't know where to go

    E*      Gb*                Abm*
    Paris breaths beneath my feet
    E*        Gb*          Abm*
    Thirsty skin against concrete
    E*          Gb*              Abm*
    My sacred heart misleading me
    E*                 Gb*      Abm*
    And I don't know where to go
    E*                 Gb*      Abm*/C#
    No, I don't know where to go

Refrain (picked or a capella)

               Abm*       Gb*
    I could go home to my love
        E*                        Gb*
    And live the life I've always wanted
                  Abm*         Gb*
    Or I could go on running off
             E*                   Gb*
    Into the night, lonely and haunted
            E*            Gb*
    And the strange thing is
                 Abm*       E*
    I don't know which I prefer
                                Gb*              Ab5
    As I sit here and watch the sun set on Sacre Coeur

*Bridge* -strummed-

    Ab5 - Ab7sus4 - DbmAdd9 - Ab7sus4
    Ab5 - Ab7sus4 - DbmAdd9

Verse 3 -picked-

    E*      Gb*            Abm*
    Paris falls under my eyes
    E*      Gb*           Abm*
    History against one life
    E*          Gb*                 Abm*
    My sacred heart's on no-one's side
    E*                 Gb*      Abm*
    And I don't know where to go
    E*                 Gb*      Abm*/C#
    No, I don't know where to go

Refrain -strummed-

               Ab5        Ab7sus4
    I could go home to my love
                 Emaj7(no5)       Ab7sus4
    And live the life I've always wanted
                  Ab5        Ab7sus4
    Or I could go on running off
             Emaj7(no5)        Ab7sus4
    Into the night, lonely and haunted
            Emaj7(no5)     Ab7sus4
    And the strange thing is
                 Absus4     Emaj7(no5)
    I don't know which I prefer
                                Ab7sus4
    As I sit here and watch the sun set
         Ebsus4                     Emaj7(no5)
    As I sit here and watch the sun set
                                Ab7sus4
    As I sit here and watch the sun...
    Ebsus4 Emaj7(no5) Ab7sus4 Ebsus4 DbmAdd9
                      Ooooohho     Ohooo...


               Ab5        Ab7sus4
    I could go home to my love
                 Emaj7(no5)       Ab7sus4
    And live the life I've always wanted
                  Ab5        Ab7sus4
    Or I could go on running off
             Emaj7(no5)        Ab7sus4
    Into the night, lonely and haunted
               Ab5        Ab7sus4
    I could go home to my love
             Emaj7(no5)        Ab7sus4    => switch to bass note picking
    It's all there if I want it
            Emaj7(no5)  Ab7sus4
    But the sad thing is
                 Absus4     Emaj7(no5)
    I don't know which I prefer
                                Ab7sus4          Abm*   (refrain picking)
    As I sit here and watch the sun set on Sacre Coeur
    Gb* E* Gb*  Abm* Gb* E* Gb*
    oooohhhooo ohhooohooohh
    Abm* Gb* E* Gb*
    Yeahhh....  *Didndai*
    Abm* Gb* E* Gb*
    *Didndai*
    Abm*
    *Didndai*
