			CAPITAL KIND OF STRAIN - Autolux

Tuning: Half step down

The whole song is mainly a single guitar riff backed by Carla's
awesome echoing drums.  The bass (if you're curious) doesn't
even come in until over two-thirds into the song and adds noise
and feedback with an Ab note bending up to and down from an A note.

This is the main guitar part.  It's not much work for your
fretting hand, but it can help if you're just learning alternate
picking.  Let all the notes ring here.

Greg will sometimes change the ending on that riff with

     q    q    q    q		   q    q    q    q
D#|--------------------|	|--------------------|
A#|--------------------|	|--------------------|

C#|--------------------|	|--------------------|
G#|------------9----9--|	|--------------------|
D#|--8----8------------|	|--8----8----9----9--|


Just before the three minute mark Greg tosses in this piece:

     e  e  e  e  e  e  e  e     e    e  e  e  e    e  e  e
D#|--------------------------|------------------------------|

C#|-----------7-----------7--|------------------------------|
G#|-----0--------------------|----------0-------------0-----|
D#|--8-----8-----8-----8-----|--8\5--5--------5\3--3--------|

After that, at about 3:21, during the fadeout before the noisefest
Greg just plays a number of bars of quarter B notes on the D# string.
Those disappear in a haze of effects and at 3:49 the noise begins
and you're back to playing the main riff again until the end.

That's it.  Just listen to the song to find out where the
change-ups fit in and you've got it.  Not too bad.
