The Arcade Fire - No Cars Go
From: Arcade Fire EP
Tabbed by: Dave

I'm pretty sure that the bass/synth riff at the beginning goes like this,
just figure the strumming rhythm out for yourself, it's easy:

e|--------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------|
D|--1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3--6-6-6-6--6-6-6-6--|
A|--------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|

That's obviously adapted for guitar, if you wanted you could tune your guitar
down to Eb and play it on the low E string (since the notes are Eb, F, Ab).


The accordian riff at 0:33:

e|--------------------|-------------------|
B|-------6-4----------|-------6-4---------|
G|--------------6-5---|--------------6-5--|
D|--3--6------6-------|--3--6------6------|
A|--------------------|-------------------|
E|--------------------|-------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------|
B|----------4---------------4---------------4--|
G|--5---5---------6-5---5---------------5------|
D|--------3-----3---------3-----6-5-3-----3----|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

This guitar riff comes in at 0:49 behind the accordian, all notes are
tremolo picked:

e|--------------|
B|--------------|
G|--15--17--20--|
D|--------------|
A|--------------|
E|--------------|


The synth progression during the verses is the same as in the intro

Eb F Ab

but during the "Hey, Us Kids Know" parts it goes:

Bb Ab F Ab (listen for the rhythm)

During the "Hey, Us Kids Know" part of the verses as well there is some more
tremolo picking going on on guitar, just use variations of the afformentioned
notes, keeping within the F Minor/Ab Major scale.


Here is the real synth riff that comes in at 3:19:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------6-------------------6------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------5-----5-------------5-----5--------|
D|--3h6-3-3h6-3-3h6-----3h6-3-3h6-3-3h6-----6h8---6h8---8p6-----6h8---6h8---8p6----|
A|----------------------------------------------------------6-------------------6--|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


The keyboard/guitar riff that comes in at 4:04:

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------6h8-----6h8-----6h8-----6h8------6p5-----6p5-----6p5-----6p5--|
A|--6h8-----6h8-----6h8-----6h8------6p3-----6p3-----6p3-----6p3------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

Play that riff 3 times, and then just play the first half. Then repeat. They
switch up the rhythm a little to make it more interesting.


The accordian riff that backs the singing at the end:

e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|--6---8--6--5---8--5--6---8--6--6---5--|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

Sometimes they skip the last two notes and go back to the beginning, so watch
out for that.


Then do some more tremolo picking after they finish singing:

e|----------------|
B|----------------|
G|--18---20---22--|
D|----------------|
A|----------------|
E|----------------|
