Here's a tab for "Grounds for Divorce" by Elbow.
The lead and rhythm guitar parts are pretty much the same, here's a tab.
Most of the rhythms are pretty clear in the song but here are some rough guidelines.
There are a lot of 3/4 step bended notes.
Bends are signified with a ^.

Intro         [x7]
E---------------|
B---------------|
G---------------|
D---3-0---0-----|
A-------3-------|
E---------------|

Verse      [x16]
E----------------|
B----------------|
G----------------|
D---3^-0---0-0-0-|
A-------3--------|
E----------------|

D-0-0-0-0-3-5-6-5-3-0-0-0-3-5-6-5---|
A-----------------------------------|

Verse Again

Bridge

The same, but with a longer C chord at the end which becomes

E------------------|
B------------------|
G------------------|
D-3-5-3-5-3-5-3-5--|  (Fs slightly bent)
A------------------|
E------------------|

until the chorus riff comes in at 3:01 which is the same as last time.

After that, Guy sings "Someday we'll be drinking with The Seldom Seen Kid" and the other 
is played twice, finishing there.

And there you have it.

Thanks, tell me if you have any suggestions/improvements

-Emmett C

The chorus sounds like chords rather than singe notes, but I might be wrong. Otherwise good work!

Hm. Well I would've thought that most of this is wrong. For example, the distorted guitar section, the chorus, should be played on the low e, droped to d. So on that string, 5^ slide 3 open string, don't pluck the 3. If you get me! :P
