Band: The Killers
Song: Bones
Bassist: Mark Stoermer

Abbreviations used: \ = slide down    (r) = let note ring

The existing tabs for Bones are pretty good but there are some issues with them so I 
I'd iron out a few creases here and there. I've tried to tab the rhythm into the intro and 
but it ain't easy so I hope it's not too confusing. Enjoy!

INTRO (come in at 0:06 after keyboard)

Soz folks, this is my tab. I didn't realize i wasn't logged in when i submitted it (I've sent an email to UG asking them to change it).

I've just realized i goofed up on the 3rd and 4th lines of the final chorus. It should go:

G|---------------|---------------|---------------|--------------|
D|---------------|---------------|---------------|--------------|
A|---------------|7-777-9-9-7777-|5-----5-5----5-|7-777-7-7-7777|
E|5-555-5-5-5555-|---------------|--555-----555--|--------------|

G|---------------|---------------|---------------|--------------|
D|---------------|---------------|---------------|--------------|
A|---------------|7-777-9-9-7777-|5-----5-5----5-|7-777-7-7-7777|
E|5-555-5-5-5555-|---------------|--555-----555--|--------------|

Enjoy!
