                     Tame Impala - Half Full Glass of Wine
                        from their 2008 self-titled EP

Intro:
The bends in the main riffs are quarter step bends (where it says .5), which is
basically bending to halfway between the two notes. It's used a lot in blues playing
(listen to the main riff to Spoonful by Cream to get a good example). The bend is
only slight, so don't over-think it.

If we are going by the 2013 Coachella performance, this should be up a whole step. So instead of the 8th fret, it should be the 10th.

This is the studio version.

This is in the right key, they just tune their guitars down to D standard, which means they play it two frets up to compensate for the lower tuning. I just tabbed it in standard. This is the same key that they play it in when tuned down, so there's no need to tune down.
