Song: Beach Comber
Artist: Real Estate
Album: "Real Estate (2009)"

Tab by Young Pacific's Devin Miller (www.youngpacificmusic.com)

Tuning: Standard EADGBe

Played with a bit of a swing feel.

Also, I think the rhythm guitarist plays with his fingers.
No pick.  Makes it much easier.

LYRICS:
--Verse 1--
What you want is just outside your reach
You keep on searching
You're walking down that Pensacola Beach
You keep repeating

--Chorus 1--
While you're waiting for that sound
Apparatus to the ground
You're stealing from the lost and found
But what you find
Ain't what you had in mind

--Verse 2--
Until you find your Rolex in the sand
You won't be stopping
Until that solid gold is in your hand
You won't be happy

--Chorus 2--
Call your office on the phone
Can't say you won't be coming home
You're balancing vacations on a rope

Then GUITAR 2 a little while after:

B|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

D|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
E|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

The song fades out, and GUITAR 2 kind of noodles around.  I won't tab it
out because its not necessary, and its supposed to be improvised!! Enjoy!

NOTATION LEGEND:


| s  slide to

Oh, by the way, the video can be found here. You can see Guitar 2 pretty well during outro as well but I can't make out all the notes. You may want to give it a chance here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2GnU22icM4

Uh, @spanish_apostle, you do know those are the same notes right? Just on a higher string? The ones that are on this tab are easier to play too.
