                            NEEDLE POINT - Modest Mouse
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Bryan Wilson aka Red_Hand_Case
Email: whatsup_makelove@hotmail.com
Tuning: Standard

I don't really know why I put so much effort into this... Hardly anyone has heard
Needle Point... So, if you've heard it and you like it and you appreciate a really
accurate solid tab, then this is for you. Anyway, this is the WHOLE song in correct
order, the guitar(Isaac's Job) is completly tabbed (Lyrics are also included at the
bottom of the page). If you haven't heard Needle Point and you want to, email me,
i'll hook you up... If you have any suggestions for improving this tab, you may do
the same... Just make sure you folks KNOW what your talking about before you make
any "suggestions".

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The version that is floating around the net just sounds horribly horribly wrong...
so this is my shot transcription, i think you'll agree it sounds better than "I'm
gone for everyone, and for anyone who deserves"... But i also think it might be
"I'm gone for everyone, and for anyone in persuit"...  It's really tricky. Email
me if you think you know, i'm interested.
