                             RADIOACTIVE - Kings of Leon
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By : savy7
e-mail: N/A

Tuning: Standard

Here are all the parts for both guitars. Figuring out the setup isn't very difficult. 
fun!

Matthew:

Pre-Verse:
e|-17p13----15p13----17p13----15p13----17p13---------------------------------|
B|-------13-------13-------13-------13-------13------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

There is a leading '13' on the B-string, on the + (and) of 4, going into this lead line, 
the lick first happens during the intro.

Verse:
e|--------------------|------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------|------------------------------------------------------|
G|-10-7---10---7----7-|-7------7---------------------------------------------|
D|---------------10---|---10-------10-7-7------------------------------------|
A|--------------------|------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------|------------------------------------------------------|
    + 2    a   + 4 +    + 2    a   + 4 +        <-- This is the counting for the verse.

Chorus:
e|-13-13-13-13-|13-13-13-13-|13-13-13-13-|15-15-15-15------------------------|
B|-13-13-13-13-|13-13-13-13-|13-13-13-13-|13-13-13-13------------------------|
G|-------------|------------|------------|-----------------------------------|
D|-------------|------------|------------|-----------------------------------|
A|-------------|------------|------------|-----------------------------------|
E|-------------|------------|------------|-----------------------------------|

Caleb:

Pre-Verse:
e|-----------------------------------------------------|----------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------|----------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------|----------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------|----------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|----------------------|
E|-5/-13--13-13-13-13-13-13-1313--13-13-13-13-13-13--5-|----------------------|

Here is the counting for the '5' leading into the '13', and all of the basic accent hits 
the '13':
+ 1    2   a(3) + (4)e   1e  2   a(3) + (4) +

The slide from '5' to '13' happens on count 1, all the way into count 2. And when going 
the verse, simply slide all the way down the bridge (into nothingness...)

Verse:
There isn't a verse on the official recording, but when played live, I always see Caleb 
do a palm-mutted version of the pre-verse

Chorus:
e|-------------------------------------------------------|--------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------|--------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------|--------------------|
D|-7/-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15--7-|--------------------|
A|-7/-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15--7-|--------------------|
E|-5/-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13--5-|--------------------|

From what I've seen on videos of this being played live, the chorus is just the 
but with the power chords thrown in.

===============================================================================
| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note
===============================================================================

Good tab, I think that part you have labeled as Caleb's pre-verse is bass but it's right anyway.

Mmmm, I don't think so... from the live videos, Caleb always starts and ends the song.
