                       Tame Impala - My Lover Mother Nature
                           from their unreleased demos

Intro:
The rhythm of this may be tricky at first. You have to hit the root note then the full
chord and then hit the top 3 open strings on an upstroke as you change chords. The root
note sometimes changes on the E major chord, so look out for that. This description sounds
more complicated than it actually is. Don't over-think it. This is only a guideline. The
actual rhythm is played loosely and isn't exact each time.

Everything is easier than ever"

The bass plays this after the 1st run through of the chord sequence. It's low in the mix,
so you have to listen closely to hear it. It's panned to the right speaker. I've tabbed
it for guitar:
e|-----------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|-7--10-9-6--9--7---7.-7.-7.-7-b9r7--7~~~-|
A|-----------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

And this afterwards:
e|---------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------|
D|-7--10-9-6--9--7--10-9-6--9--7--10-9-6--9--7--10-9-6--9--|

Another guitar plays the root notes an octave above, with some slight variations:

2nd solo:
The 1st solo plays very quietly in the background, but it's more of a production
trick, than an essential part of the song, so I won't tab it here again.
