                WE LOOKED LIKE GIANTS - Death Cab For Cutie
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tabbed By: Tony DeFrancesco

Tuning: Standard

This is my first tab, I listened to the song a shitload of times, and created this tab
myself, because every tab I've tried for this song, has completely sucked and been out 
tune.The tab is right on, so when you play with the song, its exactly on tune.

YOU NEED 2 GUITARISTS FOR THE SONG TO SOUND RIGHT!


KEY
| /  Slide Up
|   Slide Down
| h  Hammer-on
| p  Pull-off
| =  Hold Note
| +  Harmonic
| x  Palm Mute
| [] Interchangable Tab

| GUITAR 1 - Very Very Slight Distortion
| GUITAR 2 - Heavy Distortion
_____________________________________________________________________________

INTRO Part 1
_____________________________________________________________________________

This is the intro, you can hear it very faintly the first 30 seconds..

GUITAR 1
e|-----------------|
B|-----------------|
G|-----------------|
D|-----------------|  (x3)
A|-5.=-4.=-9.=-7.=-|
E|-----------------|
(slightly palm mute the whole thing, just enough so it can still ring as you hold each note)

_____________________________________________________________________________

INTRO Part 2
_____________________________________________________________________________

This is my favorite part of the song, took me forever to figure it out and get it exactly
right..

GUITAR 1
