About this tab version
The top rated tab for this song has the intro riff as well as Nick Valensi's parts tabbed wrong. The compare the intro riff I have tabbed to any video of The Strokes playing it live(Someday on Conan or on Letterman's show) or listen closely to the studio version and you'll hear that my version is correct. You'll also see that the rhythm part in the top rated tab says that three chords are played by the 2nd guitarist when he comes in, an A, Bm, and D. If you listen to the song, you'll hear that hear that Nick Valensi only plays two chords an A, and D. The top rated tab also doesn't contain the F#m7 that Nick Valensi plays during the chorus to switch from the F#m to the D. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Tabbed by:Phil M

Quite a few tabs on the site for this song, but all of them are lacking something or have the wrong chords.
I've got it separated into Albert Hammond Jr.'s parts and Nick Valensi's parts.

Tuning: Standard

Albert's Part - Intro/Verses (Two times in the intro.  Four times in verse 1.  Two times in verse 2.)
This is correct, watch it live, or listen closely to the studio track.
e|5-7------5-7-----9-7-----7-5-----------------------------------------------|
B|5-5------7-7-----7-7-----5-5-----------------------------------------------|
G|6-6------7-7-----7-7-----6-6-----------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Albert's Part - Chorus (Four times each chorus.)
The notes in the parentheses can be played but don't have to be.  It will sound fuller with them.
e|-9-12--9\---7-10-7\---5-9-5----------5-------------5---------------------------|
B|10----10\---9----9\---7---7----------7-------------5---------------------------|
G|(9)---(9)--(9)--(9)--(6)-(6)---------7-------------6---------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Play this E for the "I ain't wastin' no more time" after the first chorus.

Strum: Up Down Up Down -- Listen to the song to get an idea of how it goes.  It's the same as above.

The F#m7 is quick, and is played with the bass as a transition to the D.
