                                              Stack Shot Billy
                                             by: The Black Keys
                                            from: Rubber Factory
                                  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tabbed by: Connor O.
Tuning: Open G
Capo: 1st fret
Effects: Fuzz, Wah (solo only)


READ ME:


Tune to Open G (DGDGBD), and put a capo on the first fret. With the capo
on, use a tuner to fine tune to (Eb Ab Eb Ab C Eb), essentially Open G
up a half step. 

Play the notes shown below with respect to the capo. Make sure you're
doing this before saying anything. If it doesn't compare to the record 
version like this, take the capo off and play the same exact thing.
That's how Dan does it live. 

One more thing: There may be a low string Ab bass-line during the verses
and some of the bridges. Dan definitely plays the note in parallel with
some others, but it's hard to tell if it's going the whole time because
of the drums. See the symbol in the Key, below. I play with a bass-line. 
You can play it any way you want.

Comment or message any ideas or corrections. Please rate my tab. If you've got
problems with the tab, I'd encourage you to contact me with those problems so I
can fix the tab or provide advice for playing. Don't just give me a poor rating
and not give me any feedback. The idea is for us all to work together to create
a perfect finished product. This tab just represents the best I can do. It's 
definitely up for peer review.



Key:
where # represents a fret number

#h# - hammer
#p# - pull
/ \ - slides, up and down respectively.
#b# - bend from normal note up to achieve bended note.
#r# - release bend from bended note to normal note.
=== - represents the use of a guitar slide
[#] - optional, would make up a partial bass-line. 
      Sounds like it's on the record.

Loved his gun and his sweet cocaine

He knew soon enough that he'd burn in hell

The song is clearly in Open G. The recorded version is a half step up from Open G, so it has a capo on the 1st fret.

In this vid (and many others on YT), Dan tunes to Open G (DGDGBd) in the beginning.

The guy who rated this tab has no idea what he's talking about.
