                             Modern Life Has Let Me Down - The King Blues
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Danny K
One of the new songs off of my favourite band's new album Long Live The Struggle.
Massive shame they split. Great loss of a superb live band

Now the song sounds like it's drop D, and I don't think TKB have played many songs in
this tuning if any so i was a tad confused but yeah, no other tab, may as well give you my
input.  I'll add chords too

Tuning: Drop D
Chords:
Intro: D, F#m, D, F#m
Verse: D, F#m, D, F#m, Bm, F#m, Bm, A
Chorus: D, A, Bm, A
Bridge: Em, Bm, F#m, G
Verse
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------4-4-------4-4--2-2----------------------------| X2
D|---0-0--4-4--0-0--4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4--2-2----------------------------|
A|---0-0--4-4--0-0--4-4--2-2--4-4--2-2--0-0----------------------------|
D|---0-0--4-4--0-0--4-4-------4-4--------------------------------------|
   note* on last bar of verse going into chorus just palm mute and downstrum on the last 
chord (A)

G|-7---------------------------------------|
D|-7-X8-7----9----7------------------------| X 2
A|-5----7-X8-9-X8-7-X8---------------------|

Then go back into the intro (no idea what the second guitar is doing but I'm sure you 
can work it out)

D|-00-00-------22-22-33-33-00-------------2--3--------|
(Strum each word on 'I WILL NEVER GIVE-IN' on the ~ notes)
for strumming pattern on the last notes listen to song in bridge

On last chorus coming out from the bridge on the vocal only, as the instruments come
back in just palm mute the chorus chords until it builds back in to a full A chord. Then in
the final outro stuff just play D up to Fm
