                             MGMT - Kids acoustic

Tabbed by: laurrawr
E-mail: laurabrown23@hotmail.co.uk

Tuning: standard, capo on 5

This is how I personally play it and I worked it out from a combination of 
watching YouTube videos and my own ideas. I know there's a few versions around but 
I thought I'd add mine too (:

Bridge:

You could really do anything here but what I do is strum each of these chords once 
and sing the melody (do do do do etc) then slowly build up to more strumming into a rhythm

Em  C   G   D/F#

And then back into the chorus strumming the chords! 


At the end I normally do an outro of this:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------0--------------------------------------0---------------------|
G|--0-----2-----------2--0-----2--0--------0--------0-----0------------------|
D|--------2-----------------2-----------2--------0-----------0---------------|
A|-----2-----2-----2-----3-----------3--------2-----------------2------------|
E|--0--------------------------------------3---------------------------------|

e|----------------------|
B|--1--0----------------|
G|--------2--0--2--0----|
D|----------------------|
A|----------------------|
E|--2-------------------|

And then end on a final strum of G




Enjoy (:
