"The Hindu Times" by Oasis, from the album "Heathen Chemistry" (2002).
Tabbed by Medalion (medalionemissary@hotmail.com) Printed March 04, 2002.

Standard EADGBe tuning, no capo.

This is a GREAT new song by Oasis in awhile. It's "high" energy cocky Oasis rock n' roll of the old days!!!  The
song is a return to their rock n' roll roots.  The song gets a bit repetitive but never loses it's edge and the hook riff 
is pretty catchy.  The riff is a rock n' roll take on a hindu like riff.  There are subtle variations to this riff as you
will see from my tab... I had to be THOROUGH!!!  There are also alternatives to the riffs, whichever is easier for you to
play.

This is a very easy song to play, utilizing two guitars.  The lyrics were printed from hearing the song
over and over, as it is difficult to understand some of Liam's pronounciations as his voice is getting shot over the
years.  What can we say?  Cigarettes & Alcohol is the culprit! And I don't mean by singing the Oasis song...

I have been playing guitar for 1 year and 1 month approximately now.  This tab is already 100% correct, so there is 
probably no need for other "versions" I'm pretty confident.  I am a BIG Oasis fan, and as I write this tab, the album
"Heathen Chemistry" isn't out for another 3 months!  But you can play the new single yourself now.  Check it out! ;)

   the note the string would make if played at the 8th fret with no bend)

\ = slide up to the note

    unspecified distance
