'Kings Of Leon'
'Milk'
From 'Aha Shake Heartbreak'

Tabbed by Bartus23Bg

Great song, pretty simple. Outro part for Lead is a little more difficult.
I've seen them playing it at 'Live at the O2, London' footage, so I'm 100% sure it's correct.


Caleb - Rhythm Guitar (Acoustic at album version, clean electric live)
Matthew - Lead Guitar (Distorted electric, mostly palm muted)


Intro & Verses 1,2 - Rhythm Guitar

This part is something Caleb plays live before an actual intro, it's different almost every time.
Usually it's like this:

e|----------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------|
A|-10-10-10s9-9--9--9s10-10-10-10s9-9--9--9s10--|
E|-7--7--7s5--5--5--5s7--7--7--7s5--5--5--5s7---|

Then he goes to this riff, which he plays all over verses:

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---|
E|--7---7---7---7---9---9---9---9---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5-----|
    *               *               *               *

Right before Chorus, riff goes like this:

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--9---9---9---9---9---9---9-------|
E|--7---7---7---7---9---9---9---9---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---0-----|
    *               *               *               *           *

* - emphasize these notes

Chorus 1

Both guitar come in with the drums.
They basically slide the two top fingers of G chord (32xxxx).

Caleb plays the same pattern as in verses:

Rhythm Guitar

B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9---2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--|
E|--3--3--3--3--5--5--5--5--10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10--3--3--3--3--5--5--5--5----|
    *              *        *           *            *           *

* - emphasize these notes

When drums stop, he plays this, also different lots of times.
   
e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|--------------------|
D|--------------------|
A|----10s9---10s9--9--|
E|---7------7----7----|

Lead Guitar

Matthew plays it palm muted, and he stops with the drums stopping. 

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9---2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4----|
E|--3--3--3--3--5--5--5--5--10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10--3--3--3--3--5--5--5--5----|

    ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^   ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^  

Verse 3

Lead Guitar

Matthew plays this part without muting, he starts right after Caleb's Chorus ending.

e|--------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------|
D|--------0-----2----4--4--2--0----0----|
A|--0--2-----2-------------------2------|
E|--------------------------------------|
                |(Here Caleb starts playing his Verse part, same as in 1&2)

e|-----------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|--------0-----2----4--4--2--0----0s2s4---|
A|--0--2-----2-------------------2---------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

You can play it like that, or play first part twice, Matt changes it on live gigs.

At the time of 'I called and I called, but i can't get through...',
he plays this, palm muted. It's actually half of his Outro riff.

e|-----------------------------|
B|-----------------------------|
G|--x-7-x-4-x-7--4--7s9~-------|
D|-----------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|

e|-----------------------------|
B|-----------------------------|
G|--x-7-x-4-x-7--4--7s11~------|
D|-----------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|


Rhythm Guitar - same as Verses, including the 'right before Chorus riff'.

Chorus 2

It's just Chorus 1 played that - Riff, Riff, Caleb's Ending.

Outro

Rhythm Guitar

Caleb plays the Outro same as Verses,
at the end of live performance he plays something like that,
it's gettin' more quiet, it's hard to hear:

e|--------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------|
A|----10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10----9-----|
E|--7---7---7---7---9---9---9---9---5-5-------|
    *               *               *   

* - emphasize these notes

Enjoy!
