note. I've spent too long trying to get Marr's funky chords in the
second-half of the song. If someone can contribute, I'll add it to
this tab and give you full credit for all the work contributed, such
as the Dashboard tab. Until then, enjoy what's here...

I'd been trying to figure out that fly buzzing bit, so kudos.
And its cool to see you're tabbing a bunch of the new Modest Mouse, loving it.
