                             New Slang - The Shins
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: JP Fowler
E-mail: starmut92@gmail.com
Tuning: EADGBe (Standard)
Album: Oh, Inverted World


TABLATURE NOTES:

(1) Any note progressions of the form: ### (e.g.: 555) are 16th notes, and are
    played via tremolo picking on the corresponding string. This notation is to
    avoid confusion with 8th notes, due to the song's rather rapid tempo.

(2) The notation "|---3---|" located above notes within bars is used to indicate
    triplets. The | | symbols indicate where the triplets begin and end, respectively.

(3) The general rhythm (not time signature, mind you) changes very frequently in
    the song, especially during the chord progressions on the solos. Be mindful of
    when to come in for chord changes.

(4) The abbreviation "P.M." above staffs indicates the notes should be palm muted.
