                       MARDY BUM - ARCTIC MONKEYS
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Band: Arctic Monkeys
Song: Mardy Bum
Album: Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not (2006)


Tabbed by: skatersic666
E-mail: totalrock2003@yahoo.com


Tuning: STANDARD (E A D G B e)

This is tabbed out for guitar one and guitar two.

Listen to the CD to get the strumming correct. 

Esp. during the verse riff where the chords are strummed, once you 
have the strumming and timing correct for those bits they WILL 
sound correct

Any corrections i will be happy to change. If you like this tab or find
it helpful please rate it

25/3/06 - FINALLY SAW THAT THE CHORDS WHERE WRONG BECAUSE OF A TYPO. SORRY,
CHANGED THEM NOW.

10/4/06 - CHANGED THE INTRO RIFF

Thank You
