I transcribed this song of my favourite artist Peej 'cause nearly
anything that you can download from Peej is just the chords of the
song, which isn't much, 'cause she just plays 5 chords in this song, and
in others even less. But the interesting thing in her music is how
she plays the chords. I tried to work these details out, but I guess
I didn't really succeed, 'cause it's hard to hear how many strings
she plays. Playing the song like this with the band it sounded quite
identically, but there was something missing and i had to notice that
when you play such easy things like this song, you need lots of feeling
to sound good. When Peej plays her simple things it just sounds fantastic,
'cause she got more feeling than just anybody.

If you have some changes or additions or just something to say about PJ,
her person, her work, this song and especially about this transcription,
email to

Hello,

On a Friday night, after the clubs are gone, I get to thinking how someone on
one of my mailing lists bemoans the lack of PJ Harvey tabs on the net.  So here
is the first of a few I've currently done:  Sheila-Na-Gig!

Sheila-Na-Gig
By Polly Jane Harvey
(As interpreted by Sean Hennessey)

Chords: F#, A, D, A chord diagramC majorC

Firstly, it opens with this riff:

e----O-----O-------------------------|
b--b\3--1-----1vPvO--O--O--O---------|
g-----------------------------2---O--|
d------------------------------------|
a------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------|

In which the b\ is a slight blues bend (not pitch spec.) and the P is a pull
off.

Then it's:   (first 2 line with out any chords)
