Apostle of Hustle
National Anthem of Nowhere
National Anthem of Nowhere

Tabbed from the Harbourfront 2004 Broken Social Scene show
and BSS @ Ottawa Folk Fest video 2004

This tab really is how Andrew played it with BSS before it became a single on the new 
of Hustle album.  The arrangement is slightly different.


Tuning:Standard

Note: strumming is not shown...just strum each up and down and listen for the timing

The long outro live is played with
fig. 3.5 tremelo picking throughout.

This is almost exactly how he plays it live after watching the Ottawa Folk Fest video.  
you have trouble playing, it is probably b/c of my lack of strumming info and timming.
