Hey guys this is one of my fav songs ever and its 100% accurate garenteed. There is
no other person besides the Strokes themselves who know the song better.
Palm mute most of the song exept on the Chorus Guitar 1 and a few other exeption
which I'll point out

(Be sure not to add the third string of the power chord(X) in every power chord in
the song Only hit the two strings as shown)

(Try to slide (s) between these power chords. It takes some time to get every stroke
(no pun intended) plus the slide, so try substituting the last downstroke of each power
chord for the slide until you can get it smooth.  it would only be 7 strokes then 3 strokes then 3 strokes)
Bridge Guitar 1

For the last verse, play the verse palm muted like usual, but do not play the chorus,
just repeat the verse again, but this time, let it ring and not palm mute it.

Guitar 2 (Nick)
Nick plays through a synthasizer pedal in this song. If yopu dont have one than u can
just turn your tone knob all the way down. It should be muffled.

Verse Guitar 2
e|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|9--5-7-5-9-7--5-----5-7--4-5-4-7-5--4------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------|X 2
D|-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|
This phrase is all on the same string. It seems babyish but Nick wants that consistent
tone that he wouldnt get if he were to change to different strings.
Chorus Guitar 2
e|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|12--9-7-9--12--9-7-9--12--9-7-9-5--9-7-9---------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|
For the second verse, its played exactly the same the first time, but when you repeat it
it changes to this:
e|---------------------------------------------------------|
B|9--5-7-5-12--10--7-----5-7--4-5-4-7-5--4-----------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------|

G|----------------------------17-16h17h16h17-------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|
(Make sure you hold out and smoothly connect(h) the last part of the phrase)

For the last verse, play the verse phrase exactly the same, but dont play thew chorus.
Then When you play the verse for the second time, it changes like this: 
e|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|9--5-7-5-12--10--7-----5-7--4-5-4-7-5--4---------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------|X 2
D|-------------------------------------------------------|
