Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Hey guys, this is one of my favorite songs by the Strokes so it really surprised me to see a lack of
well thought-out chord sheets to play this song solo. Luckily, almost all of it is straight up power chord 
structure stuff, so playing this should be fairly easy.

Automatic stop


[Verse]

F#           D#m
So many fish there in the sea
A#m
I wanted you, you wanted me
F#                   D#m
That's just a phase, it's got to pass
A#m
I was a train moving too fast


[Bridge]

G#m                    F#
Didn't understand what to see
      G#m         
Yeah, then I got a different view
     C#    C#sus4
It's you...no.


[Pre-Chorus Riff, totally optional]

F# A#m
F# A#m


[Chorus]

F#    C#                   D#m
Wait, I'ma gonna give it a break.
            G#7
I'm not you friend,
        B
I never was.
       F#    C#              
I said wait, I'ma gonna give it a break.
             G#7
I'm not your friend,
        B
I never was... No.


[Verse]

F#           D#m
So many fish there in the sea
A#m
She wanted him, he wanted me
F#                   D#m
That's just a phase, it's got to pass
A#m
I was a train moving too fast


[Bridge]

G#m                    
Yeah, I know you warned me
F#                
But this is too important
G#m
Now I got a different view
     C#   C#sus4
It's you...


[Pre-Chorus Riff, once again it's optional]

F# A#m
F# A#m


[Chorus]

              F#    C#                   D#m
Why can't you wait, I'ma gonna give it a break.
            G#7
I'm not you friend,
        B
I never was.
       F#    C#                   D#m
I said wait, I'ma gonna give it a break.
             G#7
I'm not your friend,
        B
I never was.

Alternatively you can play this for the main riff if you want

[Verse]

F#           D#m
So many fish there in the sea
A#m           C#
I wanted you, you wanted me
F#                   D#m
That's just a phase, it's got to pass
A#m           C#
I was a train moving too fast

But personally I don't think it sounds as good as strumming the A#m for two bars.

Thanks for reading guys, hope this helped!
