This tab corrects errors seen in the other version and tab pro version. The goal is to have this version be accessible to all users, while also being more accurate than the pro version. Was this info helpful? Yes No
This is the song "Threat of Joy" off
The Strokes new EP "Future Present Past"
I've tabbed both Nick Valensi's and Albert Hammond Jr.'s part.

Here is the bass tab, which I also uploaded
