RUNNER UPS BY KURT VILE
OFF OF "SMOKE RING FOR MY HALO"
2011 MATADOR RECORDS

**TUNING**
low to high

F#-B-B-F#-A#-D#

tune the high E down half a step to D#. tune the B down half a step to A#. tune the G 
down half a step to F#. tune the D down one and a half steps to B. tune the A up a whole 
step to B. tune the E up a whole step to F#.
not sure if this tuning is correct. it sounds pretty sweet though either way as an open tuning

this song is incredible, here is my attempt at tabbing what i figured out the other day.

the song ends with this

the second guitar is in standard tuning i believe and has a CAPO on the 6th fret

this part is most likely very wrong but it's just an idea of how it goes. he probably 
does a lot more and hammers on/pulls off a lot on the A or D on the 2nd fret to open.

This is great! I wish I could help improve this as it doesn't feel quite complete, but thanks for tabbing my favorite Kurt Vile song.

Hey really nice tab, but I think the G string should be tuned only a half step down, it sounds better to me. But thanks for your tab, I love this song!
