Song: Cathedral Spires
Band: Judas Priest
Tabbed by: cianormo

A true epic, but one with no tabs so I decided to give it a go. This took me AGES to tab
as with most songs from Priest, the bass is hard to hear in some parts but I gave it my
shot. It sounds like there are points where Ian plays with gain on the bass and points
he doesn’t, but that’s my interpretation. Feel free to give me any comments.

4 String
