       			 RIOT VAN - ARCTIC MONKEYS
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Band: Arctic Monkeys
Song: Riot Van
Album: Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not (2006)


Tabbed by: skatersic666
Email: totalrock2003@yahoo.com



Tuning: STANDARD (E A D G B e)


Listen to the CD to get the strumming/timing correct.

Any corrections i will be happy to change.




Strum the chords lightly and kind of rake them if you get what I mean
to give them the effect used in the song

For the solo, use sligh distortion and i tink either a tremolo or
vibrate effect (but im not 100% certain about that)

In the chorus between the C#m to the Bm you can slide down.

Hey this tab is literally perfect, except for on the E chord they add a hammer on onto the 2nd fret on the B string half way through strumming it -- but otherwise, perfect. Great job
