                   OCEAN BREATHES SALTY - Modest Mouse
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: devin miller
Email: irish__nugget@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard EADGBe

Guitar 1 and 2 (in time)

e|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------0------|
G|------------0-------0---0--------------0-------0-------0--|
D|----5-4---4---4----------------5-4---4---4----------------|
A|--7-----5-------0-3---3------7-----5-------0-3---3--------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

e|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|--12+~(0.5)------------------12+~12+~(0.5)----------------|
G|------------12+br(0.75)-------------------12+br(0.75)-----|
D|----------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

the ~(0.5) isn't just a vibrato. use the bar to bend like this:
b-r-b-r-b-r-b-r

by br(0.75) i mean: bend up to almost fret 14, then release.
listen to the song to get the right pitch.

when isaac plays this live, he hits harmonics on the 12th
fret then presses on the bridge to bend them.  But I guess normal
fretted notes would sound as good.


riff played four times throughout the song by guitar 2:

e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|--8\5-8\5-8---8-8-10\5--5-5\3--3-3-3-3-5-------|
G|------------9----------------------------5-5---|

This is the quiet background riff played by guitar 2 starting at 1:40.

Guitar 2 quietly comes in at exactly 3:15 with this riff:

NOTE: "3`" means bend the note up half a pitch, play it and release
(called a pre-bend release).
