                Spanish Sahara by Foals
-----------------------

Few tabs up already, but they didn't seem quite right to me, pretty sure this is
close if not spot on

Main Chord Progression:
-----------------------

    Fm      C        Em       C     Bm
e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------|
D|--7-------10-------14-------10----9------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|--8-------12-------15-------12----10-----------|

Repeats for the entire song, with only the plucking/strumming varying

I usually hybrid pick the intro, try to put the emphasis on the higher note,
as this is the root

Pre Chorus
----------
Instead of plucking those chords, pick them, increasing in volume
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---7---7--------10----10--------14----14---------10----10-------9----9-------|
A|---------X4--------------X4-------------- X4--------------X2-------------X2--|
E|-8---8------ 12----12--------15----15---------12----12-------10---10---------|


Chorus:
-------
Strum the main chord progression

Second guitar tremolo picks this chord towards the end of the chorus
e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|--13-13-13-13-13-13-13-------------------------|
G|--14-14-14-14-14-14-14-------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|


Second Verse:
-------------
Second guitar adds some volume swirls:
e|--17~-X4--15~-X4-------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

Build after second chorus
-------------------------
Yannis plays this guitar part
e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------|
G|-17-17---16-16-16-14-14-14---------------------|
D|---------------------------15--17--14------X2--|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------|
G|-17-17---16-16-16-14-14-14-16-16-16------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

e|-----------------------------------------------|

G|-17-17---16-16-16-17-17---16-16-16-------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

Then, another guitar overdubs that riff
e|----------------------------17-15--------------|
B|-17-17---15-15-15-----------------17-----------|
G|------------------17-17-17-----------X2--------|
D|-----------------------------------------------|

D|-----------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|----15----15-15----15-15----15-15--------------|
G|-17----17-------17-------17--------17----------|
D|-----------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

Outro
-----
After the above is played, one guitar repeats this 3 note arrpeggio:

e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|--------17---------------------------------------|
G|-----14------------------------------------------|
D|--17---------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------|

occasionally he will throw in some variations, the
order of these is fairly random, so have some fun experiementing
Var 1
e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|--------18-------------------------------------|
G|-----14----------------------------------------|
D|--17-------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

Var 2
e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|--------17----------------15-------------------|
G|-----14------THEN------14----------------------|
D|--15----------------15-------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|


And we're done, enjoy!
