Hey guys. I've searched for this tab for a while and I could never find it. I really
like this song so here's the bass tab for the song. Its pretty bluesy.

Like most songs off of the "Fight The Tide" album, its in Eb so tune your bass to that
before we even begin. I've separated the song into 5 main tabs for the verses. choruses,
and the bridge. Here we go!

Title: "The Show"
Artist: Sanctus Real
Album: "Fight The Tide" (2004)

Bass: Dan Gartley (Eb Ab Db Gb)

Tab Key
/- slide up
\- slide down
~- sustained note
T- note played on the tenth fret

Riff 1 (verses)
Gb|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-------------------2-----2-----------------------------------------------|
Ab|---0-4----0-4--0-4---0-4-----0-4----0-4----------2/5-5\4\2---------------|
Eb|-2------2------------------2------2-------0-0-4--------------------------|
This is repeated all throughout the verses.

Riff 2 (choruses 1,2,4)
"Its the way that Your beauty..."
Gb|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab|---5555----------------5555------77777777--------------------------------|
Eb|--------5555-00000000-------5555-----------------------------------------|

Riff 3 (Bridge)
"You stole the show..."
Gb|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Eb|-77777999TTTTTTTT-5555555444444444---------------------------------------|

Repeat this through the entire bridge and guitar solo.

This isn't a huge change, but I personally like to play it like this to match the
 rhythm guitarist.

Riff 3 (Bridge)
"You stole the show..."
Gb|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Eb|-77777999TTTTTTTT-5555575444444444---------------------------------------|


Riff 4 (Chorus 3)
"Its the way that Your beauty..."
Gb|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab|-5~---------5~----7~-----------------------------------------------------|
Eb|-----5~-0~-----5~--------------------------------------------------------|

After that third chorus you play the chorus, the bridge, and then the ending:

Riff 5 (Ending)
"Lights down, take a bow, You know You stole the show."
Gb|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab|-5~----------------------------------------------------------------------|
Eb|-----5~-0~---------------------------------------------------------------|

*NOTE: All notes in riff 4 and 5 are played as whole notes.*

Well thats it! Hope it sounds as great as it did for you as it did for me! God bless!
