I’ve checked all of the tabs of When the Sun Goes Down on this site, and although some of them
are really good, none of them seem to be 100 % accurate. 
And perhaps (probably) this isn't
either but at least it sound pretty
 close to what’s played on the album, 
and also it looks
kind of
like this when Arctic Monkeys play it live (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRyWcge_nmg and
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Nyzae8hYTY). Use this and the bass tab version 3 featured
on this site and your pretty close to sounding like the real deal.

Hope you enjoy it! A smashing tune from the best band in years and I personally think
the best tab I’ve seen of it so far.

Let ring


Followed by short pause/break. Then Alex sings:

“I said: he’s a scumbag, don’t you know!?”

And on “know” both Alex and Jamie start playing. From now on until the outro, both 
guitars should be distorted. 

So, this is the first part of the first bridge, middle 8 or what you'd
prefer to call it.


GUITAR ONE (ALEX)

This is not the exact strumming pattern; you’ll have
 to listen to the record to catch
the correct strumming.

|---2-----3--2--2--x-x-x-x-x-x-x---------------------------------------|
|---3-----3--2--3--x-x-x-x-x-x-x---------------------------------------|
|---4-----4--3--4--x-x-x-x-x-x-x---------------------------------------|
|---4-----5--4--4--x-x-x-x-x-x-x---------------------------------------|
|---2-----5--4--2--x-x-x-x-x-x-x---------------------------------------|
|---2-----3--2--2--x-x-x-x-x-x-x---------------------------------------|

|---3--2--2--x-x-x-x-x-x-x---------------------------------------|

|---4--3--4--x-x-x-x-x-x-x---------------------------------------|
|---5--4--4--x-x-x-x-x-x-x---------------------------------------|
|---5--4--2--x-x-x-x-x-x-x---------------------------------------|
|---3--2--2--x-x-x-x-x-x-x---------------------------------------|

|----3--2--2-2-2-2-2-2-2---------------------------------------|
|----2--3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3---------------------------------------|
|----4--3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3---------------------------------------|
|----5--4--4-4-4-4-4-4-4---------------------------------------|
|----5--4--2-2-2-2-2-2-2---------------------------------------|
|----3--2--2-2-2-2-2-2-2---------------------------------------|

The fourth time, just play:

|----3--2--------------------------|
|----3--2--------------------------|
|----4--3--------------------------|
|----5--4--------------------------|
|----5--4--------------------------|
|----3--2--------------------------|


GUITAR TWO (JAMIE)

|---2-----3--2--2-----------------------------------------|
|---3-----3--2--3-----------------------------------------|
|---4-----4--3--4-----------------------------------------|
|---4-----5--4--4-----------------------------------------|
|---2-----5--4--2-----------------------------------------|
|---2-----3--2--2-----------------------------------------|

|----3--2--2---------------------------|
|----2--2--3---------------------------|
|----4--3--4---------------------------|
|----5--4--4---------------------------|
|----5--4--2---------------------------|
|----3--2--2---------------------------| x3

And then comes the second part of the bridge.

GUITAR ONE (ALEX)

|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|--------024------------------------|
|------22---------------------------|
|-33222-----------------------------| x4

|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|--------420------------------------|
|------22---------------------------|
|-33222-----------------------------|

GUITAR TWO (JAMIE)

Comes in after Alex has played the lead riff the first time.

|----3-3--2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2---------------|
|----3-3--2-2-2--3-3-3-3-3---------------|
|----4-4--3-3-3--4-4-4-4-4---------------|
|----5-5--4-4-4--4-4-4-4-4---------------|
|----5-5--4-4-4--2-2-2-2-2---------------|
|----3-3--2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2---------------| x4


After this little bridge comes the fourth verse. 
During this verse, there is no guitar -
just bass, vocals and drums.

Followed by pre-chorus:


GUITAR TWO (JAMIE)

|----3-3--2-2--2-2--2-2---------------|
|----3-3--2-2--3-3--3-3---------------|
|----4-4--3-3--4-4--4-4---------------|
|----5-5--4-4--4-4--4-4---------------|
|----5-5--4-4--2-2--2-2---------------|
|----3-3--2-2--2-2--2-2---------------| x4


Straight to the chorus where both guitars play this.

|--7-7-7/--9--9--9---2-2-2-2-2/--------|
|--8-8-8/--10-10-10--3-3-3-3-3/--------|
|--9-9-9/--11-11-11--4-4-4-4-4/--------|
|--9-9-9/--11-11-11--4-4-4-4-4/--------|
|--7-7-7/--9--9--9---2-2-2-2-2/--------|
|--7-7-7/--9--9--9---2-2-2-2-2/--------| x4


And then...

GUITAR ONE (ALEX)

|----5--2---------------------------|
|----5--2---------------------------|
|----6--3---------------------------|
|----7--4---------------------------|
|----7--4---------------------------|
|----5--2---------------------------|


GUITAR TWO (JAMIE)

|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|----7--4---------------------------|
|----7--4---------------------------|

|----3-3--2-2-2--3-3-3-3-3---------------|
|----4-4--3-3-3--4-4-4-4-4---------------|

|----5-5--4-4-4--2-2-2-2-2---------------|
|----3-3--2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2---------------| x4


Verse 5

GUITAR TWO (JAMIE)

|----3-3--2-2--2-2--2-2---------------|
|----3-3--2-2--3-3--3-3---------------|
|----4-4--3-3--4-4--4-4---------------|
|----5-5--4-4--4-4--4-4---------------|
|----5-5--4-4--2-2--2-2---------------|

|----5-5--4-4-4--2-2-2-2-2---------------|
|----3-3--2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2---------------| x4


Back to chorus again. Both guitars play this:


|--7-7-7/--9--9--9---2-2-2-2-2/--------|
|--8-8-8/--10-10-10--3-3-3-3-3/--------|
|--9-9-9/--11-11-11--4-4-4-4-4/--------|
|--9-9-9/--11-11-11--4-4-4-4-4/--------|
|--7-7-7/--9--9--9---2-2-2-2-2/--------|
|--7-7-7/--9--9--9---2-2-2-2-2/--------| x8


And then...

GUITAR ONE (ALEX)

|----5--2--7------------------------|
|----5--2--7------------------------|
|----6--3--8------------------------|
|----7--4--9------------------------|
|----7--4--9------------------------|
|----5--2--7------------------------|

GUITAR TWO (JAMIE)

|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|----7--4--9------------------------|
|----7--4--9------------------------|
|----5--2--7------------------------|


After this comes the outro.

GUITAR ONE (ALEX), CLEAN.

Sorry for the messed up language above. This is how I intended it to be:

"I’ve checked all of the tabs of When the Sun Goes Down on this site, and although some
them are really good, none of them seem to be 100 % accurate. And perhaps (probably) this isn't
either, but at least it sound pretty close to what’s played on the album, and also it looks

Some words seem to "fall off" when you copy it from MS Word to UG.com. Sorry for that. Sure you will get trough the text anyway.
