This tab is now in its third revision (and, to my knowledge, is the most accurate available) following 
comments from other users and from information I've found elsewhere online. Please see my message below the 
tab for clarification.

Let the 2 on the F ring throughout.

nuke126 on the Arctic Monkeys forum (arcticmonkeysus.com) went to a TLSP gig recently and spoke to Alex's
guitar tech. I've copied the post below:

"I asked Alex's guitar tech before the Santa Cruz gig what his Ovation Viper is tuned to and he told me 
it's a whole step down (D Tuning, also called One Step Lower, Whole Step Down, Full Step or D Standard. 
Each string is lowered by a whole tone or two semitones resulting in D-G-C-F-A-D. For "Aviation", 
"Element of Surprise", uses capo 2nd fret for "I Want You" so he can play the chords like standard tuning."

In light of this I have transposed the original tab to D Standard tuning.

The live performance linked below is good reference material, and proves my reasoning for letting the last 
note ring.

on that are a little hard to catch but i believe this is how it goes
