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 for playing the intro to this song in standard tuning, as opposed to the alternate
tuning the song is played in.



If it makes it easier, you can slide from 3 to 5 on the G string.

Riff A, Section One

Guitar #1
e|------------------------------||
B|--------------------------3---||
G|----------------------3-5-----||  Repeat x4
D|---------2p0---3--0-----------||
A|-----1-------1------1---------||
E|--3----3----------------------||

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

G|----------------------3-5-----||  Repeat x4
D|---------2p0---3--0-----------||

Guitar #2 comes in with some fast G power chords.

Then both guitars play Riff A.

That's the end of Section One, in comes Section Two starting with both guitars playing Riff B.

E|-3--3--------------------3--||

Then comes a little fill-like part before going back into Riff B, the power chords at the 
end of the riff are done in a bit of an up-stroke pattern. Listen to the song to get the timing.

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.
