                             Tame Impala - Wander
                        from their 2008 self-titled EP

Intro - the first note in this riff is actually an octave lower, but I've tabbed it
in standard tuning for simplicity. To get that low octave, just tune the low E string
to D and then play the open string:
e|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|
G|----------------4--5--4h5p4---4-| x4
D|----------4h5h7-------------7---|
A|-5----4h5-----------------------|
E|----7---------------------------|


Verse:
"Save your fragile mama's heart,
And though she will come for you,
But I wander"
e|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|
G|----------------4--5--4h5p4---4-| x7
D|----------4h5h7-------------7---|
A|-5----4h5-----------------------|
E|----7---------------------------|


Pre-chorus:
e|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|
G|----7-5-4----------7.-7--|
D|----------7-5-4----7.-7--|
A|-5--------------7--5.-5--|
E|-------------------------|


Chorus:
"And I wonder,
Just how far will you need to be,
For shaking talk so easily,
For hours on end I wander,
Still I don't even..."
e|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------9-9-9-9-9--9-9-9-------| x4
D|-9-9-9-9-9--9-9-9-----4h6p4-----9-9-9-9-9--9-9-9--7.-7-|
A|-9-9-9-9-9--9-9-9--4.-------6---7-7-7-7-7--7-7-7--7.-7-|
E|-7-7-7-7-7--7-7-7---------------------------------5.-5-|


Then play this chord:
"...know her"
e|-2----2----|
B|-2----2----|
G|-2---------|
D|-X---------|
A|-0---------|
E|-----------|


Verse:
"Feel just like I need to be,
Back where I was,
Before I couldn't do that,
And I wander"
e|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|
G|----------------4--5--4h5p4---4-| x7
D|----------4h5h7-------------7---|
A|-5----4h5-----------------------|

e|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|
G|----7-5-4----------7.-7--|
D|----------7-5-4----7.-7--|
A|-5--------------7--5.-5--|
E|-------------------------|


Chorus:
"And I wonder,
Just how far will you need to be,
For shaking talk so easily,
For hours on end I wander,
Still I don't even know"
e|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------9-9-9-9-9--9-9-9-------| x4
D|-9-9-9-9-9--9-9-9-----4h6p4-----9-9-9-9-9--9-9-9--7.-7-|

E|-7-7-7-7-7--7-7-7---------------------------------5.-5-|

Studio banter:
One guitar quietly keeps playing the chorus progression.
"Jay: What were you saying?
Kevin: [laughing] That was like, the worst cymbal ever.
Jay: I don't understand what you're trying to tell me.
Kevin: Sounds like...pubic hair.
Jay: [laughing] You could have waited!
*Jay plays loud drum fill on cymbals*
Kevin: What, Gumby?
Jay: I said, I'm sick of you taking over. 
Kevin: Oh.
Jay: I want to record the drums on all our albums, alright? [Kevin laughs] Modular?
Hear that?"

Man, I just want to say: you're the best! You tabbed out Tame Impala's less known stuff AND Mac Demarco! I love you man! Didn't know there was someone who liked both of them! Again, thank you!

Thanks man! It's great to hear that people are getting some use out of my obsessive tabbing of songs that I love.:p

I take it from your username, and the fact that you like Tame Impala, that you also like Mink Mussel Creek? Because I have a tab of Makeout Party Girls currently awaiting approval, which should be up in the next week or so.

I also plan to tab out all of Tame Impala's demos, plus 'Remember Me'. Then I might get started on Lonerism (which will take ages to do considering all the dense layers of guitar and synths on that album!).

If you have any tab requests I could give them a shot if you want?

Dude I love your tabs especially the Innerspeaker ones but I am 100% sure the main riff in this song goes like this:

e|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|
G|----------------4--5--4h5p4---4-| x4
D|----------4h5h7-------------7---|
A|-5----4h5-----------------------|
E|----7---------------------------|

Try it out and play along with the song and you'll find its fits perfect and corresponds with the pre-chorus riff musically:
e|----------------------|
B|----------------------|
G|-7-5-4----------7.-7--|
D|-------7-5-4----7.-7--|
A|-------------7--5.-5--|
E|----------------------|

Anyway great tab keep them coming bro.

I want to post or [tab]
