Tabbed by: Connor O.
Tuning: Standard
Capo: 1st fret (F Bb Eb Ab C F) 
Effects: Distortion and a little bit of reverb.



GET INTO STANDARD TUNING, PUT THE CAPO ON, AND USE A TUNER TO FINE TUNE TO 
EXACTLY THIS. DON'T JUST SLAP ON THE CAPO, YOU NEED TO FINE TUNE.

Say what you will, but this song would be impossible to properly play without
a capo. There are F bass-lines played on the low string at several points 
throughout the song. I'm relatively certain Dan Auerbach is no stranger to 
using a capo. I've seen live footage of him using one for several songs, 
including Girl Is On My Mind. I also know he uses a capo for Stack Shot Billy
and Going Home.

Comment with ideas/corrections. Please rate my tab.
