                        Music To Walk Home By - Tame Impala
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tim van Kester
Tuning: D (whole step down)

Because I don't check on forehand whether you really need the low Eb and D
notes, I already tabbed everything in this tuning. I'm too lazy to change
everything to standard E tuning after I'm done tabbing.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Until 0:38, it's not very clear whether there is guitar or not. From there on,
there is this part we'll call the verse:

----

'Can almost stand competing with the others...'
d|-7-7-7--7-7-7--7-7-7--7-x-x-7---7-7-7--7-7-7--7--------|
A|-9-9-9--9-9-9--9-9-9--9-x-x-7---7-7-7--7-7-7--7--------|

d|-7-7-7--7-7-7--7-7-7---5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--x-x-7--x-x-9---x-x-----|
A|-7-7-7--7-7-7--7-7-7---5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--x-x-7--x-x-9---x-x-12~-|
F|-7-7-7--7-7-7--7-7-7---6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6-6--x-x-7--x-x-9---x-x-12~-|

D|-7-7-7--7-7-7--7-7-7---5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--x-x-7--x-x-9-----------|

Return to the first verse. After that, there is this 'strange' part where
some synth comes in, pitch turns up or something. Then:

'I just don't know...'
d|-7---7~------7---9~--|
A|-9---7~------9---9~--|
F|-8---8~------8---9~--|
C|-9---9~------9---7~--|
G|-7---9~------7-------|
D|-----7~--------------|

Repeated a lot of times, until:

'You're no sun (?)...'
d|----------|
A|--9---7---|
F|--9---7---|
C|--9---7---|
G|--7---5---|
D|----------|

Also repeat a lot of times, 
the synth does something like this (second one is variation):
d|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-9h10p9h10p9h10h12p10h12p10-----------9h10p9h10p9h10h12p10h12/14\12~-------|
F|----------------------------11~--------------------------------------------|
C|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then, the synth changes, so do the chords:
d|-3---3------2---2--|
A|-5---3------3---2--|
F|-6---4------4---2--|
C|-------------------|
G|-------------------|
D|-------------------|

When the synth stops (around 3:19), he fingerpicks the chords, all three
string at the same time

d|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-----------|
A|-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-----------|
F|-6-6-6-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4---2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-----------|
C|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Again repeat it a couple of times. Then, the drums stop and the guitar is
something like this:

d|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
F|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-7------6------6------6------9------7------7------7------7------6------6---|
D|----7h9----7h9----7h9----7h9----7h9----7h9----7h9----7h9----7h9----7h9-----|

d|---------------|
A|---------------|
F|---------------|
C|---------------|
G|-----6------9--|
D|-7h9----7h9----|

d|-7---7~------7---9~--|
A|-9---7~------9---9~--|
F|-8---8~------8---9~--|
C|-9---9~------9---7~--|
G|-7---9~------7-------|
D|-----7~--------------|

Repeat this one until the end. I think the synth follows the vocal lines:
d|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-9---10-9--7~----7---5-4--5~--\2~------------------------------------------|
F|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Also, the end riff.
d|------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------|
F|------------------------------------|
C|------------------------------------|
G|---6-7-6---6---------6-7-6----------|
D|-9-------9---7~----9-------9-7-5~---|
