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…

Intro
Bass (use reverb)
0.00 -
G|-------------------------------|
D|-----4~-------4~------4~-------|
A|-------------------------------| just continue as needed
E|-2-2~---2-2-2~--2-2-2~---------|

Guitar (tremolo effect + lots of reverb + slight OD)
0.15 – 1.06
e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|--11-11-11------------11-11--------------------------------|
D|----------------------------x16----------------------------|
A|--9--9--9-------------9--9---------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|

Faris starts to sing
1.06 – 1.58 
e|---------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|--11-11--------------------------------------|
D|-----------continue to play this-------------|
A|--9--9---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

Every 4th time you play the above riff, use a slide (or any other round
metal/glass object ie. tremolo bar, battery,…)

Riff
1.58 – 2.13
e|------------------------------------------------------------|
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 – 2.53
Guitar 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
One thing I have deciphered is this:
e|--14-------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----14----------------------------------------------------|
G|--------14-16----------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|
It returns a couple of times, just listen to the song to hear when.

3.23 – 3.39
Bass
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|
E|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2—x11 or so-------------------------|

Synth comes in
Note: this is playable on guitar, if you use OD or turn your gain down on
your dist, use a tremolo pedal and reverb
3.40 – 4.26
e|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------|
G|-6-----6-----6--------------------------------------------|
D|---8-----8-----8—x30 approx.------------------------------|
A|-----9-----9----------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

Bass
G|----------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------|
E|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2—x?---------------------------------------|

Then changes to something along these lines
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-2----2/11----11\4----4----2----2/6----6\4----4/11----11\9----9--|

Outro
4.26 – 7.59 (end)
Synth
e|----------------------------------------------------------| 
B|----------------------------------------------------------| 
G|-6-----6-----6----15-------15-------15--------------------| 
D|---8-----8-----8—----16-------16-------16-----------------| 
A|-----9-----9------------18-------18-----------------------| 
E|----------------------------------------------------------| 
										   
e|----------------------------------------------------------| 
B|----------------------------------------------------------| 
G|-8-------8-------8-----8-------8-------8------------------| 
D|---10------10------10----10------10------10---------------| 
A|------11------11------------11------11--------------------| 
E|----------------------------------------------------------| 
										   
                                                              
e|----------------------------------------------------------| 
B|----------------------------------------------------------|   
G|-6-----6-----6----10-------10-------10--------------------|   
D|---8-----8-----8—----11-------11-------11-----------------|  
A|-----9-----9------------13-------13-----------------------|   
E|----------------------------------------------------------|   
										      
e|----------------------------------------------------------|   
B|----------------------------------------------------------| 
G|-8-------8-------8------15-------15-------15--------------| 
D|---10------10------10------16-------16-------16-----------| 
A|------11------11--------------18-------18-----------------| 
E|----------------------------------------------------------| 
										   
e|----------------------------------------------------------| 
B|----------------------------------------------------------| 
G|-13-------13-------13----13-------13-------13-------------| 
D|----15-------15-------15----15-------15-------15----------| 
A|-------16-------16-------------16-------16----------------| 
E|----------------------------------------------------------| 

Repeat the entire outro part until the end of the song, after a while, the
tremolo is turned off, and the OD eventually too, so it's just the reverb.
And then a little later again, you strum the chords, with slight delay and
volume swells (either a volume pedal, or the volume knob on your guitar, or 
if it's too much of a hassle, just strum them with the delay)

LIVE:
When I've seen them live, Josh just plays the power chords:
e|----------------------------------------------------------| 
B|----------------------------------------------------------| 
G|----------------------------------------------------------| 
D|-4-----13----6-----4----8----6----13----11----------------| 
A|-4-x8--13-x8-6-x16-4-x8-8-x8-6-x8-13-x8-11-x16------------| 
E|-2-----11----4-----2----6----4----11----9-----------------| 


This is the tab to the incredible epic song Sea Within A Sea, hopefully
I’ve helped you

Key: 
~: let ring
tr~: let ring and use tremolo bar/do a vibrato
\: slide down
/: slide up

Update 16/08/2009: I made 2 additions: one in the 2.53-3.23 bit and 
one in the outro. I also made a correction in the outro

Thanks for taking the time to tab this... excellent. Love this album and initially had trouble figuring out what the guitar was doing beneath all that MBV-inspired reverse reverb, tremolo, washed-out noise. Cheers!
