This is my first tab so hope you can read it without any problems!

This is the guitar outro solo to A Dustland Fairytale by The Killers. In the album
version the guitar fades out quickly but when played live, Dave Keuning usually plays an
extended outro to the song which I've worked out and tabbed out for you. Hope its good, 
any feedback will be most welcome :)
The part alternates through different inversions of the following broken chords:
D, A, G, F#m, Bm

Tuning: Standard (E A D G B e)

     D                                  A              G
        F#m
