                       from their 2010 album Innerspeaker

This is the intro to 'It Is Not Meant to Be'. I've also incuded the bass line.

After the 4th repeat, the second guitar plays this over the top;
the strumming pattern is included above the tab (D means down and U means up):

Here is another way of playing the intro on guitar that is slightly easier:

Good Tab, but could you add rest of the bass line? There are a lot of breaks and pieces in there.

Hey Paul, sorry I haven't replied for so long, I only just saw this comment today.

I'm not a bass player and I don't own a bass guitar. I worked this out just fooling around with one my friends bass guitars, so I don't have the rest of the song. I also put this tab up as just the intro as I hadn't worked out the rest of the song when I uploaded this.

A more complete bass tab is available here: http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/t/tame_impala/it_is_not_meant_to_be_btab.htm
which may or may not be accurate. Try it out and tell me if its good.

Plus you can always look at live videos and watch what the bassist plays.

Cheers!
