                         "Night on the Sun" by Modest Mouse
              From the album: Everywhere & His Nasty Parlour Tricks
                                         tab by: bbkeen


Note: this tab is for the bass parts ( but played on guitar )
and the rest of the bass and guitar parts.

[Intro]

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|  x 3
A|----------------4-h-5-p-4----------------------------------------|
E|--0--4--6--4---------------7-h-5-p-7--4--------------------------|

         This song is played with overlapping combo of guitar and bass,
         so have someone play bass over the guitar [ remember
         that basses make the same sounds on different
         strings]. so if you're not happy with the intro just remember
         that there is a bass overlapping to cause a " fullness " to the notes.
         But then again, it was recorded in a freaking studio...

[Verse 1]

 e|----------------------------------------------------------------|
 B|----------------------------------------------------------------|
 G|----------------------------------------------------------------|
 D|----------------------------------------------------------------|  x 1
 A|--4--6--7--6--4--2-2--------------------------------------------|
 E|-------------------------4--0-----------------------------------|

           Play : Intro x3
                  Verse1 x3
                  Intro x3
                    and then...

 e|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
 B|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
 G|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
 D|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
 A|--4--6--7--6--4--2-2-----------------------------------------------|
 E|-------------------------4--0---7--9/0--14/7-----------------------|

         another guitar is playing harmonics over the bass
         over the 0---7--0--7 parts.
  Gently lay your index finger over the 7 and 12th fret...

 e|-----7-------12------7--------12-----------------------------------|
 B|-----7-------12------7--------12-----------------------------------|
 G|-----7-------12------7--------12-----------------------------------|
 D|-----7-------12------7--------12-----------------------------------|
 A|-----7--------12-----7---------12----------------------------------|
 E|-----7--------12-----7---------12----------------------------------|

   Then when the drums kick in start palming these notes:

 e|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
 B|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
 G|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
 D|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
 A|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
 E|-PM--0--0-0-x/0-0--0-0-0-x/0-0--7--7-7-x/7-7--7-7-7-x/7-7----------|


So, turn off the lights cause it's night on the sun y'all
Hopelessly hopeless I hope so, for you...
Freeze your blood and then stab into in two
Stab your blood into me and blend
I eat my own blood and I get filled up, I get filled up and then

 Well it's one thing to know about this town, it's five hundred miles underground
 That's all right, that's all right
 Well there's one thing to know about this globe, it's bound up and willing to explode
 That's all right, that's all right
 There's one thing to know about this earth, we're put here just to make more dirt
 That's all right, that's all right

  And thats pretty much it! A fairly simple song but awsome when you master it.
   I would get the cd to listen to the order and stuff.

Guitar key:
h = hammer on

      index finger to mute the
      note, giving it a clicky sound
PM = palm mute

I heard Isaac play Night on the Sun live (it was amazing), and he tunes his guitar to Open E. That's just tuning it to sounding like an E chord when played open strings. The barred harmonics don't sound right unless you tune it this way.
