Date: Sat, 30 May 1998 22:33:39 -0400 (EDT)
From: Bobby Tendinitis 
Subject: a/archers_of_loaf/rental_sting.tab

Song: "Rental Sting"
Artist: Archers of Loaf
Album: "All The Nation's Airports" (Alias/Elektra, 1996)
Tabbed by: Bobby Tendinitis (bedwarm@cyberspace.org)

This may or may not be 100% accurate, but sounds pretty close and should
impress your all indie-rock friends.  The way I play it is in standard
tuning: E A D G B E

Of course, \ is slide down, / is slide up.

Main Part:

----------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------|
--------11*-----11----------6-------4---------|
------0-------0----0--------------0-----------|
----0---------------------0-------------------|
-10-------10----------\-5-----\-3------3-/----| (slide back up, repeat)

* - on a few of the runs through this line, this note is bent up
one step.

Lyrics:
Rental sting, the customer is king
Waste your life, waste your life
Little things can cost you everything
Save your life, save your life

Bridge:

-------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------|
-2-2-2--22--10-12-10-10-\-5-5-5--55-/-12-14-12-12-\----|
-0-0-0--00--8--8--8--8--\-3-3-3--33-/-10-10-10-10-\----| (again, slide down
                                                         & repeat)

[whistling overtop, no vocals]

Repeat Main Part with new lyrics:

Dead and white, our distance is disguised
Mad and sad when it's my misunderstanding
Rental sting, the customer is king
Waste your life, waste your life


Closing part:

-------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------|
7-7-8-8-9-9-8------------------------|
5-5-5-5-5-5-5---7--8--9----5--6--7---|
----------------5--5--5----3--3--3---| (repeat to ending)

There's a second guitar picking out some individual, higher notes overtop
this pattern, but this part sounds sufficient on its own.

As always, feel free to correct me or add anything.
