Tame Impala-Nothing That Has Happened So Far Has Been Anything We Could Control     
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tim van Kester
E-mail: 

Tuning: Standard

I like this song. It's normally in that D-tuning Parker always uses,but I guess 
you don't need it. So here it is in standard. 
There is a lot going on, also some guitar playing I probably didn't tab 
because it would make it a bit too much.

Feel free to comment or talk about stuff below.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First the synth plays some chords. Then, when the drums enter, play this.
They are some sort of slow upstrokes.
e|-8-----------|
B|-8-----------|
G|-8---[x4]----|
D|-6-----------|
A|-------------|
E|-------------|

Singing also enters:
e|-4-------1---------------1---------|
B|-4---6---1---3---8---6---1---3-----|
G|-5---6---1---3---8---6---1---3-----|
D|-6---6---3---3---8---6---3---3-----|
A|-6---4---3---1---6---6---3---1-----|
E|-4-------1---------------1---------|

Ends with:
e|-8----|
B|-8----|
G|-8----|
D|-6----|
A|------|
E|------|

The dialogue thing comes in ('What are you doing out here?'). 
You can keep on playing the chords from the
second bar. When the singing comes back, he also plays those.

He plays some different chords at 'Is it right?' and later on
at 'I just get one' until 'I wasn't our decision':
e|-4-------1-----------------------4-----1---------------1--------|
B|-4---6---1---3---8---6---4---3---4-----1---3---8---6---1---3----|
G|-5---6---1---3---8---6---4---3---5-----1---3---8---6---1---3----|
D|-6---6---3---3---8---6---4---3---6-----3---3---8---6---3---3----|
A|-6---4---3---1---6---6---2---1---6-----3---1---6---6---3---1----|
E|-4-------1-----------------------4-----1---------------1--------|
But plays the normal progression after that again.

Then we get some break. I think these chords are played (or at least sound
alright).
e|----------------------|
B|-6---6---8------10----|
G|-7---7---9------10----|
D|-7---7---9------10----|
A|-5---x---7------8-----|
E|-----0----------------|


Also, from 3:25 onwards, something like this, hidden in a lot of noise:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------2----5/7--5---2-----2-0-0-----0--2--5----4---/7--5--/9----5----7----|
D|-3-----------------------------------------------------------------------7-|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------8~------18b20-----------------------------------|
G|-9----7------------------------------------17b19---14----12/14--14~\7------|
D|---------5/7~--------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------------------------------|
B|-----6---8---13b15--10--10----|
G|-5h7----------------12b-12b---|
D|------------------------------|
A|------------------------------|
E|------------------------------|

Solo
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-15~\10-----15\10----13---12b13r12----6----5-----15~\10-----15\13~------12-|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------------------------------15~\10--------|
B|-6----5-----15~\10-----15\12/13~------12b13r12----6----5-------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-15\10----13---12b13r12----8~------15--10--12--13---15~\10-----15\12/13~---|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---12b13r12----8------|
B|----------------------|
G|----------------------|
D|----------------------|
A|----------------------|
E|----------------------|

Return to opening chords, I think the piano thing sounds a bit like this.
e|-20---18--16--------------------------------------|
B|-------------20-18----16--------------------------|
G|---------------------------16------15--16--18-----|
D|---------------------------16--18-----------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------|

From 'Nothing that has happened...' at 5:19, the synth at the background plays
the vocal melody from earlier this song ('Elodie, look at me...'
e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-8/10\8---8/10\8\7--7---8-8----------------------|
D|-----------------------------8~/11---11-10---8---|
A|-------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------|
This part gets repeated until it fades out.
