                             LIVE ALONE - Franz Ferdinand

So this is my first tab. I could have chosen something easier, but I'm positive I got it 
mostly right. Only things I'm not
entirely sure of are the chorus might be double notes on the lower note (meaning a 
constant 16th notes the entire time),
but it's too low to tell and probably too fast to play anyway. Also I think he might be 
playing in drop D, but the only
time he hits the low D is in the turnaround after the chorus, so you could probably get 
away with just going to the high
D there. Comment or Email if you agree it's Drop-D and I'll change it.

If you're like me and like to embelish on songs I've included the chords above each 
part. Also check out the LCD Soundtream
remix.

Awsome bass line, but tough to keep up. I watched a couple live performances and even 
he(Bob Hardy) starts just playing
the bass notes every once in a while.
