Cage The Elephant – Ain’t No Rest (for the wicked)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Open G, played with a slide.

Hi! Now, I've noticed that all the other tabs are either innacurate, 
or have missed out some bits, so I have figured out the rhythm 
guitar (which is in brackets), and added other bits that weren't
included in other tabs.

Play with a slide, best on your ring finger: that way you can use your
index and middle for playing the other guitar. For the other guitar, 
play close to the bridge to achieve the right sound.

D|--------------------|-------------------------------|

Above: now, the lick there is fast: for the "18 17" bit, angle the slide so
it goes over both frets. Add a bit of vibrato to each note, but don’t
overdo it.

You cant really hear this bit: it is hard to hear, but listen closely, it is there.

You still don't have it 100%, the intro isn't quite right, which seems to be the case with all the tabs of this song.

Try:
d|--------------------------|
B|--------------------------|
G|-----------/12------------|
D|-----------/12------------|
G|-12\10/12--/12--12--------|
D|-12\10/12-------12--------|

with a slide, of course
