Song : Elephants

Artist : Them Crooked Vultures

Tabbed By : Guns&Rosesman49

Tuning : Guitar #1, Standard Tuning (E A D G B e)
        
         Guitar #2, Standard Tuning (E A D G B e)


This is a fairly simple song to play, and can be played in standard tuning, yet I 
can't seem to find an accurate intro tab, so here goes.



If it makes it easier, you can use hammer ons and pull offs for these riffs.

Riff A
Guitar #1
E|-------------------------||
B|---------------------3---||
G|------------------3-5----||  Repeat x4
D|--------------3----------||
A|--------5-3----5-3-------||
E|--3--6-3----6------------||

Then comes the same thing, just at a faster tempo,
listen to the song to get the right timing.

Guitar #1
E|-------------------------||
B|---------------------3---||
G|------------------3-5----||  Repeat x4
D|--5-----------3----------||
A|--5-----5-3----5-3-------||
E|--3--6-3----6------------||

Guitar #2 comes in with some fast G power chords

Guitar #2
E|--------||
B|--------||
G|--------||
D|-555555-||  Repeat x4
A|-555555-||
E|-333333-||

Then both guitars play Riff A, with a power chord at the start this time.


Guitars #1 & #2
E|-------------------------||
B|---------------------3---||
G|------------------3-5----||  Repeat x4
D|--5-----------3----------||
A|--5-----5-3----5-3-------||
E|--3--6-3----6------------||

Then comes Riff B, also both guitars

Guitars #1 & #2
E|------------------------||
B|------------------------||
G|------------------------||  Repeat x2
D|--5-5---3-------------5-||
A|--5-5--5-5-3-5--5-3---5-||
E|--3-3-6------------6--3-||

Then comes a little fill-like part before going back into Riff B, this part has 
some strange timing, so once again listen to the song.

Guitars #1 & #2
E|--------------------------------------------||
B|--------------------------------------------||
G|--------------------------------------------||
D|--5--5----5---5--5----5---5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5--||
A|--5--5-3--5---5--5-3--5---5--5-5-5-5-3-5-5--||
E|--3--3--6-3---3--3--6-3---3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3--||

Repeat the whole section from Riff B down to here, and go back into Riff A four more times.

Guitars #1 & #2
E|-------------------------||
B|---------------------3---||
G|------------------3-5----||  Repeat x4
D|--5-----------3----------||
A|--5-----5-3----5-3-------||
E|--3--6-3----6------------||

Then comes Riff C, which eventually leads into Riff D and ends the Intro.

Guitar #1
E|--------------||
B|-----------3--|| - Slide all the way UP the neck.
G|-------3-5----||
D|--5-5-5-------||  Repeat x8
A|--5-5-5-------||
E|--3-3-3-------||

Guitar #2 does a very cool sounding slide up the neck.

Guitar #2
E|----------------||
B|------------3\--|| - Remember, slide UP!
G|----------------||
D|----------------||
A|----------------||
E|----------------||



Riff D comes next, and ends the intro.

Guitar #1

I'm pretty sure this song's in Open G tuning.

That's probably right, but this tab is supposed to show people how they can play this song in standard tuning.
