                             LAST NITE - The Strokes
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tabbed By: Chris Parker (Chris_Parker)

This is my fourth tab, though one wasn't published.

Anyway, I recently got into The Strokes, and I love them. This is probably
my favorite song by them. In fact, the first time I heard it was at my cousin's wedding, 
I'm sure you care about.

A general rule of them for indie EQ: Have more treble than bass, keep mids
fairly high, or to taste (like reverb), and use a light amount of gain.


This is really fun to sing along with, so I'll try to time the guitar with
the vocals as best as I can. I think the verse chorda are about four beats
per second, so I guess the tempo is like 120 bpm. (They're eigth notes by
my "calculations")

Okay, here we go, have fun and enjoy!

Guitars 1 & 2

C                                 Dm7
Last nite, she said, "Oh, baby, I feel so down.
       G                    Em7
Oh, it turns me off, when I feel left out."
C                                     Dm7
So I, turned around, "Oh, baby, don't care no more.
       G                        Em7
I know this for sure, I'm walkin' out that door."
C
Well, I've been in town for just about fifteen minutes now,
            Dm7                 G
And Baby, I feel so down, and I don't know why
       Em7
I keep walkin' for miles.

END

All right, that's it! Awesome song, I hopw you liked it (and that I got it
 right!). Okay, well if you have any questions or need some help (or want to
correct me!), click on my name above the tab and send me a PM, or feel free
to leave a comment on my profile page.

The only thin I might have off is the doubling of the main riff, that and
the amount of repeats, it's kind of hard to decipher.

All right, have fun playing this song!

hey man hows it goin. just a few corrections, in the intro guitar 2 plays 4th string 3rd fret 3rd string 5th fret then 4th string 5th fret 3rd string 5th fret. also the chord progression in the verses is c dm g theres no em7 in there and one more try startin the solo at the 13th fret 1st string i think it sounds better. the strokes are awesome i play a few of their stuff. let me know how you get on.
