Thickfreakness - The Black Keys

In the intro I think he uses a slide to make that effect, which I don't have so
you'll have to figure that out by yourself.  It sounds like a lot of the slides
in this song are played with an actual slide instead of just your finger which
makes it sound better, but you can do it without one.

Key:

p=pull b=bend /=slide (2)=harmonic v=vibrato
2b>4=bend 2nd fret to 4

This is seriously the best tab of this song. It plays exactly like the CD version.

Lack of accuracy. Tab incomplete. Clearly wrong. The notes are wrong, from listening to the song and looking at others teaching it, this appears to be prettty far off.
