I Know You Are But What Am I?
by Mogwai (off the album "Happy Songs For Happy People")

Standard tuning (Piano transcribed for guitar and explained)
4:4 timing

Lovely piano-led piece this. Listen for amounts and timings - the whole song's
repeats based around these two sections.

I think it it should be an octave lower. And also there's a minor 2nd or something more dissonant at the end of the phrase. Like this.

e|---------|---------|---------|---------|
B|---------|---------|---------|---------|
G|-6-6-6-6-|-6-6-6-6-|-6-6-6-6-|-6-6-7-7-|
D|---------|---------|---------|---------|
A|-3-3-3-3-|-3-3-3-3-|-3-3-3-3-|-3-3-4-4-|
E|---------|---------|---------|---------|

Also, the main phrase starts with the A5 chord, they're just not playing the actual left hand for the beginning of the song. Otherwise the right hand and left hand don't line up correctly.

Oops, ignore my comments about the more dissonant thing :P Forgot to delete it.
