Animals as Leaders
On Impulse
From the album 'Animals as Leaders'
6 string version
Charted/Tabbed by Ethan Crisp
Last Updated: 6.1.14
This is the main riff of 'On Impulse'

This is my first tab and it is I think extremely accurate

CBA trying to write the rhythm so figure it out yourself
It took me one guitar teacher , a guitar pro tab and the software transcribe to
get this tab so enjoy :D

The main tip for getting it to sound right is to play with a reverb effect but also it
let the notes ring out for as long as you can.(After playing a note , dont immediately
take it off)
Standard Tuning:

Main Riff 1:
(when sliding from 7 to 9 I slide with my pinky then like roll onto my index finger (im
strange I know) but it is awkard)

e|------------------------7~~9----------------------------------7--5------|
B|------------7--------5--------9-----10--------9--------5--7-------------|
G|---------6--------6--------------9--------------------------------------|
D|------6--------4------------------------9~~7------4--6------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---5--------------------------------------------------------------------|

Main Riff 2:

e|-------------------------7~~9-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------7--------5--------9-----10---------9--------------6--------|
G|----------6--------6--------------9---------------------6--------7------|
D|-------6--------4------------------------9~~7---------------6--------9--|
A|---------------------------------------------------9--8-----------------|
E|---5--------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---5-------------------7---------------------------------------|
B|------6----------6---------------------------------------------|
G|---------6----------6------------------------------------------|
D|------------7--6-----------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

It is awkward I know but it helps your hand positions , rolling and sweep picking (if
you want to)

Extra:
When Tosin plays it , he plays it using what he calls ''Hybrid Picking''. This is
similar to classical guitar where you use you thumb and fingers to play however in Hybrid
Picking you use a plectrum instead of your thumb and use your middle , 3rd finger and 
pinky to strum. For the notes he uses a plectrum , listen to nots in the song which are 
played a
lot harder than the others

@jrcsqutpeppers The way I do it (and it is really awkard I know) is a play 7 with my picky and as im sliding I move my index fingers to bar the 9 (I know im stange)
