Alright, so- as many of you, i'm sure, can relate, The Arcade Fire is probably my
favorate band. Every song they have created is nothing short of brilliant. I am
relatively new to the guitar and this will be my first tab. Seeing as i don't play the
piano and i have yet to learn chords fo the guitar- it may be a little rusty and will do
the actual song no jusice.. But- i havent been able to find a tab for this song yet, in
addition to many other of theirs songs, so- if you suck as much as i do, enjoy. :)
thanks. Email me with comments, revisions, whatever.

After the chorus, guitar 1 plays the verse (the picking one) twice again, the first time
pesky violin does a solo. even a handy jewish bass player can't replace that, but you
substitute your guitar 2 for it if you dont have a 3rd (or, even better, a violin
player). after the first repetition of the verse, during the second, Win Butler does
some distorted stuff on guitar #2, if you're familliar with the song.

I'm sorry but almost everything about this is wrong. The guitar isn't in the right key, and the chord progressions are incorrect. The 2nd guitar doesn't match how the song actually sounds. Some of the Guitar 1 things are on the right track - they start off correctly but the fizzle off into the wrong direction. Sorry if it sounds harsh, but I have no idea how this could currently be ranked with 6 votes giving it 5 stars.
