Secret Door by Arctic Monkeys (guitar tab)

I put down most parts of guitar 1 as chords, 
they are played with a down, down-up, down, down strumming similar to the intro
In every part apart from the intro, the G minor chord is played on the 3rd fret

forgot to put the last gtr. 1 chorus part in you're right

I'll update straight away

check out the chord tabs of the song; it'll take a little bit until the changes apply
