(play with slight variations and augmented versions of these basic chords, this chord
sequence is very jazzy and hard to be exact with)

Play Bridge/Riff IV more rapidly, but with same basic outline.

Follow up with Riff V x 4 with minor variations

Play Bridge/Riff IV rapidly again and end.

There's a longer, alternate version of this song on The Seduction which continues from
this point, where the single version ends, with a break-beat/drum passage and a jazzy,
double-tracked, improvised guitar solo, and then ends with a jazzy descending chord 
sequence, but most of it is very tricky so have fun figuring it out.

This one is for serious nerds, so if you like Ludus and want more tabs, just leave a comment.

Also, please leave any corrections, questions, or concerns.
Cheers,

This is actually in standard tuning without the capo; most likely the tape was sped up a bit during mastering (or sped down during mastering of The Visit EP, etc.) so that it sounds sharp on the recording. Either way, this tab is pretty spot on.
