TEDDY PICKER - ARCTIC MONKEYS

Just recently found out how to play this song, and so I thought I'd show you - the
people of Ultimate Guitar - how to play this.  I've seen some tabs for this and they're just
a little bit wrong.  I'm pretty sure this is 100% correct.

ALEX TURNER -  E A D G B E
JAMIE COOK  -  E A D G B E


[Intro]
(Gt.1 + Gt.2):
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|------6-5-------6-5-------6-5-------6-5----|
|--5-5-----4-5-5-----4-5-5-----4-5-5-----4--|

|-------------------------|
|----------------------3--|
|--0-0-4-0--0-0-0-4-0-----|


[Verse]
(Gt.2 continues playing INTRO, while Gt. 1 plays these chords occasionally):
|-------------------------|
|--5-5---5-5---5-5---5-5--|
|--5-5---5-5---5-5---5-5--|
|--7-7---7-7---7-7---7-7--|
|--7-7---7-7---7-7---7-7--|
|-------------------------|


[Chorus] (Gt. 1):
|----------------------------------------------|
|-10------9------5-------10------9-------------|
|-10(x8)--9(x8)--5(x16)--10(x8)--9(x8)--8------|
|-10------9------7-------10------9------8(x8)--|
|--8------7------7--------8------7------6------|
|----------------------------------------------|


[Chorus] (Gt. 2):
|---------0---------------------0-------------|
|--1------0------1-------1------0-------------|
|--2(x8)--1------2(x16)--2(x8)--1------8------|
|--3------2(x8)--2-------3------2(x8)--8(x8)--|

|-------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------6-5--------6-5--|
|--0--0-0-4-0--0--0-0-4-0--5--5-5-----5--5-5------|
NOTE: After the lyric: "That says that we are...", go back to VERSE 1.

End of Chorus 2 (as the beginning is the same as CHORUS 1; Gt. 1):
|---------------|
|-10-10-9-9-5~--|
|-10-10-9-9-5~--|
|-10-10-9-9-7~--|

|--2-2-2-2-1~--|
|--2-2-3-3-2~--|
|--0-0-3-3-2~--|
|--x-x-x-x-0~--|
NOTE: I can't tell if Jamie plays this or a mini-tremolo solo, but this is easier.


[Solo]
(Gt. 1; Gt.2 keeps on playing VERSE 2 until CHORUS 3):
|--0-5/13-12~-12-12-12-15-15-15--|

|--------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|

[Chorus 3]
is exactly the same as CHORUS 1, until the OUTRO (Gt.1):
|--------------------------------------|
|-10----9----5-------10----9-----------|
|-10----9----5(x16)--10----9----8------|
|-10----9----7-------10----9----8(x8)--|

Is this your first tab? This is a really good one.

Tab incomplete. Clearly wrong. The outro is missing, and there are not 2 guitars in the chorus that play chords. Gt.2 plays something like this.

Don't listen to RockbassHM, I don't think he even tried playing this tab haha, it's excellent.

I borrowed this from the version 1 tab, because alternately, one of the guitars plays this:

E|----------------|
A|-------13-15-12-|
D|----14----------|
G|-15-------------|
B|----------------|
E|----------------|
