Modest Mouse - Four Fingered Fisherman

Tabbed by: Nick Verveniotis

Tuning: Standard

This has at least two guitars going at the same time. I've written part of it so that it can be 
played with just one, in case you don't have any friends and only two arms! Gasp!

Go nuts at the end by strumming really fast (listen to the song for the rhythm) and don't be 
afraid to strum all the strings to get that signature 
Isaac-Brock-it-sounds-like-I-don't-know-how-to-play-but-really-I'm-doing-it-on-purpose sound.

Listening to young Jeremy stuggle to maintain consistency in this song is a barrel full of 
laughs; especially when he hits random cymbals.
