                             Keep on lying - Tame Impala
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tim van Kester
Tuning: D (two half steps down)


Great song by Tame Impala. For the outro jam, I didn't tab every single note
perfectly, because there is a lot of delay and echo in there which makes it
very cool, but difficult to tab. Throw in some own improvisation when you
play it.
By the way, I forgot to edit the tuning in the tab. I'm sorry for that.
For corrections and suggestions, please leave a comment below!

These chords repeat a lot. Listen to the track to hear when he repeats which
part of the bar. In the begin, it is mostly three times the first part and
only once the second part. Later one, he repeats the second part of the chords
a lot.

Then he plays that same riffs a couple of times more, but an octave higher.
He uses some little variations in it which I will tab instead of the 'simple'
version.

After a while he stops playing the riff and starts some bending and stuff.

Then some random noodling with the same notes.
After that, his sharp distortion kicks in:
