                             MIAMI - Foals

Tabbed by: DaveS

Tuning: Standard

As usual, loops a-plenty on this track. But this is as best as I can make out two 
defined guitar parts.

Hey, I'm having trouble with this. How do you play the first bit of the main riff? On record the 12141212 bit sounds nothing like I play it. How do you do it?

hey man, sorry if its unclear, its a tremolo pick of:

12-14-12-12

rather than

1-2-1-4-1-2-1-2

its hard to show on this scale sometime! hope thats what you were having a problem with?
