                  Tame Impala - Why Won't You Make Up Your Mind?
                       from their 2010 album Innerspeaker

Intro:
This is the main chord
progression that continuously
plays throughout the entire song:
e|-5--6-----0--1-----|
B|-5--6-----0--1-----|
G|-5--7-----0--2-----| x2
D|-7--8-----2--3-----|
A|-7--8-----2--3-----|
E|-5--6-----0--1-----|

Occasionally hit the higher notes
after playing the chords, like this: 
e|-5--6-6----0--1-1----|
B|-5--6---6--0--1---1--|
G|-5--7------0--2------|
D|-7--8------2--3------|
A|-7--8------2--3------|
E|-5--6------0--1------|
It doesn't have to be exact. You can play whatever note or
part of the chord you want and it will sound good.
There's room for improvisation here.

Then a second guitar comes in and plays the same thing:
Guitar 1 and 2:
e|-5--6-----0--1-----|
B|-5--6-----0--1-----|
G|-5--7-----0--2-----| x4
D|-7--8-----2--3-----|
A|-7--8-----2--3-----|
E|-5--6-----0--1-----|

Synth guitar lead then comes in:
Guitar 3:
e|---------5-----8\5----------------------------8\5--------------|
B|---5---5-----------6\3-3--5-------5---5-6---------6\3-3--5-----|
G|-5---7--------------------------5---7--------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 1:
e|-5--6-----0--1-----|
B|-5--6-----0--1-----|
G|-5--7-----0--2-----| x2
D|-7--8-----2--3-----|
A|-7--8-----2--3-----|
E|-5--6-----0--1-----|

Verse 1:
There are slight variations and fills played
by the synth guitar, which I will tab.

"Why won't you make up your mind? Give me a sign,
Why won't you make up your mind? Give me a sign,
Am I wasting my time? Living in my head?
You'll be sorry when I make up mine instead"

Synth guitar:
e|---------5-----8\5--------------|---------5-----8\5----------------------|
B|---5---5-----------6\3-3--5-----|---5---5-----------6\3-3--5--5-6-5\3-3--|
G|-5---7--------------------------|-5---7----------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------|----------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------|----------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|----------------------------------------|

e|---------5-----8\5--------------|---------------8\5------------------|
B|---5---5-----------6\3-3--5-----|---5---5-6---------6\3-3--5--6\3-1--|
G|-5---7--------------------------|-5---7------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------|------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------|------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|------------------------------------|

These chords are played behind the synth riff in the verses:
Guitar 1:
e|-5--6-----0--1-----|
B|-5--6-----0--1-----|
G|-5--7-----0--2-----| x4
D|-7--8-----2--3-----|
A|-7--8-----2--3-----|
E|-5--6-----0--1-----|

Fuzzy riff played between the verses:
Guitar 2:
e|------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------| x2
D|-2b2.5--0----0-3--5/7-7--2b2.5--3--------7\5-5--|
A|-----------1------------------------0-3---------|
E|----------------------------------1-------------|
The bends are quarter step bends, which is basically bending to halfway between the
two notes, which are E and F in this instance. It's used a lot in blues playing
(listen to the main riff to Spoonful by Cream to get a good example). The bend is
only slight and doesn't have to be exact, so don't over-think it.

A second guitar comes in and harmonises the riff:
Guitar 2:
e|------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------| x2
D|-2b2.5--0----0-3--5/7-7--2b2.5--3--------7\5-5--|
A|-----------1------------------------0-3---------|
E|----------------------------------1-------------|

Guitar 3:
e|---------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------7-9-10--12/14-14--------------------14\12-12--| x2
D|-9b9.5--7--------------------9b9.5--10---7-10------------|
A|---------------------------------------8-----------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

If you want to play both the normal and harmonised parts
together, then here they are combined. It's a bit tricky,
but here it is nonetheless:
e|---------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------5-------------------------------------------|
G|-----------7---10--12/14-14--------------------14\12-12--| x2
D|-9b9.5--7--------------------9b9.5--10-3-7-10------------|
A|-7b7.5--5----5--8--10/12-12--7b7.5---8---------12\10-10--|
E|-----------6---------------------------1-5--8------------|

These chords keep playing very faintly in the background:
Guitar 1:
e|-5--6-----0--1-----|
B|-5--6-----0--1-----|
G|-5--7-----0--2-----| x4
D|-7--8-----2--3-----|
A|-7--8-----2--3-----|
E|-5--6-----0--1-----|

Verse 2:
"Why won't you make up your mind? Give me a sign,
Why won't you make up your mind? Give me a sign"

Synth guitar:
e|---------5-----8\5--------------|
B|---5---5-----------6\3-3--5-----|
G|-5---7--------------------------| x2
D|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|

Guitar 1:
e|-5--6-----0--1-----|
B|-5--6-----0--1-----|
G|-5--7-----0--2-----| x2
D|-7--8-----2--3-----|
A|-7--8-----2--3-----|
E|-5--6-----0--1-----|

The synth riff stops and the chords play on their own at this bit:
"Am I wasting my time? Living in my head?
You'll be sorry when I make up mine instead"

Guitar 1 and 2:
e|-5--6-----0--1-----|
B|-5--6-----0--1-----|
G|-5--7-----0--2-----| x2
D|-7--8-----2--3-----|
A|-7--8-----2--3-----|
E|-5--6-----0--1-----|

Outro jam:
Synth guitar:
e|---------------------|---------5--8/10-10-10--8\5----------------------|

E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------------------|
B|-10----------10---|
G|------12b14-------|
D|------------------|
A|------------------|
E|------------------|

The main chords are played very faintly in the background again:
Guitar 1:
e|-5--6-----0--1-----|
B|-5--6-----0--1-----|
G|-5--7-----0--2-----| x8
D|-7--8-----2--3-----|
A|-7--8-----2--3-----|
E|-5--6-----0--1-----|

The ending parts of the fuzzy riff and synth riff were deciphered by increasing the
volume as the song fades out. You can't really hear them unless you turn the volume
up, but that's how the song ends, so I thought I'd include them. Those parts actually
sound really, really awesome, and I wish there was an extended version with them
continuing on rather than fading out.

Have fun with it!

I've double and triple checked it, and I've tabbed it right, but I did just realise that the second repeat is this:

e|---------------8\5--------------|
B|---5---5-6---------6\3-3--5-----|
G|-5---7--------------------------| x2
D|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|

So thanks for alerting me to one bit that I missed.:)
