                 Call it Fate, Call it Karma - The Strokes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Chris Warner
E-mail:cwarner3000@gmail.com


The song is beautiful playing 1st postion open chords, but
this is one way to play this with one guitar note for note


The only tricky chord I noticed is the fourth chord of the chorus D+,
an augmented fifth chord for you music theory lovers.
If you are playing without a capo the D+ chord is x5433x or
x54336

Tuning:E    Capo 7th fret

The numbers are the actual fret numbers (i.e. 7 is an open note)

I didn't like it at first but now its my favorite song on the album. I love every song on the album but One Way Trigger which is exactly the same as the Mana song En el muelle de San Blás

Good tab, but you could have arranged it better. For instance first part could be made much easier with (Capo 7th, all notes not in relation to capo to match original format) B 12 --> E 7 and D 12 --> G 7 so for instance the first chord is all open strings with the capo on.
