Artist: Bombay Bicycle Club
Song: Magnet
Album: I had the blues but I shook them loose
Tuning: E Standard

The main tune you hear during the chorus isoriginally played on a keyboard I think, but 
could use a guitar with some
of effect on it. I've supplied a tab for that. :)

if anyone is wondering the electric piano part is just a B Major 7 followed by an E Major 7 with the bass part playing the major triads (F#-D#-B and G#-E-B)
