                     red and purple - the dodos
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:  Michael McNulty
Email: naw

Tuning:  Open A tuning  (E A C# E A E) low to high

this is a basic version of this song.
meric from the dodos adds a lot of nice flourishes that i didn't/couldn't tab out.

great song.

rhythm is not indicated, listen to the record to get it.

the part after the bridge is just the chorus chords with oooooohs over them

i think that's all the different parts, just put them together!
