                     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.
