Gold On The Ceiling - The Black keys
El Camino - 2011
==============================================================


Tabbed by Chuck
email: chuck15050@hotmail.com
In my opinion, one of the best songs of their new album, El Camino.

This is my first tab in a while. It is highly inspired by other tabs i've seen for this 
song (and I don't take credit for this one at all). So I made one.

I might be doing other Black Keys tab as well. Be sure to check them out.

Be sure to listen to the song for the good rhythm and tempo.

There is also a little inaudible solo at the end, but it was too much inaudible to Tab. 
Sorry 'bout that.

Hope you enjoyed.

This is a carbon copy of Version 3 with some very minor cosmetic alterations

@indie_nation

Do you know why it looks like the version 3?
Because it is the same song.

Again, I don't take any credit for this tab.

The only reason I made it is to correct some mistakes myself.
