===THE KILLERS===
==When You Were Young==

Right I'm not gonna ramble on about nonsense like the others do but this is my first tab
be nice... =]

Guitar 1 = Rhythm Guitar (slightly clean) - Standard Tuning E B G D A E
(instead of having to tune your guitar to Down 1/2 Step, I just tabbed it down a semitone)
Guitar 2 = Lead Guitar (slight overdrive) - Down 1/2 Step Eb Bb Gb Db Ab Eb
(for simplicity's sake I have just put it as standard tuning on the tab)

==Intro==

As suggested by digital_seige, play this for the intro, it works better:

Guitar 1
E|-2-|
B|-2-|
G|-1-|
D|-x-|
A|-2-|
E|-0-|

Set your Volume knob low, play the chord, then turn up the volume knob for the effect, 
scratch.

Cheers for the tip... continue as follows:

E|----------------------------------------------|

==Bridge==
There is no guitar in this bit eitha! =[
But what I would prefer to do is play this in a really light palm mute...

Guitar 1

E|----------------------------------------------| x2
   ........ .... .... ................ ........

==Solo 2==

If you have a guitar that allows a whammy bar, rest your palm on the bridge whilst
this on the lead in, it should give the correct effect.

Guitar 2
E|----------|
B|----------|
G|-14(x32!)-|
D|----------|
A|----------|
E|----------|

Guitar 1 plays regular whilst guitar 2 plays:
E|-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-------------------------|

==Lead Out==

Guitar 1 & 2 (consider guitar 2's tuning - move each fret up 1)
E|----------------------------------------------|

G|-44444444-6666-8888-1111111111111111-44444444-|

A|-22222222-4444-6666--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-22222222-|
E|----------------------------------------------| x2

On the piano bit near "talks like a gentleman", get guitar 2 to do this:
|--------------|
|--------------|
|--9-—7-5—-4---|
|--x—-x-x—-x-7-|
|--7—-5-3—-2-x—|
|------------5—|


The rest is pretty self explanatory!
