Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Simple Song. There's not real guitar in the song mostly electronic synth repeating:
You can do them as regular open chords, but I would expect Vampire Weekend to play them down
the neck on the higher strings. So I would suggest playing them as bar chords, but only 
the 3 high strings.

Or I also find this is the easiest way to pick the chords.

       A
e|---5------5---|
B|-----5-------5|
G|-6------6-----|

       D
e|--5-----5----|
B|----5-----5--|
G|7-----7------|

       E
e|--7-----7---|
B|----7-----7-|
G|9-----9-----|

       A*
e|--9------9----|
B|----10-----10-|  This weird A is used at the of the verses.
G|9------9------|

A                     D
Then it's your business
A                       E
A modern piece of glasswork
A                       D
Down on the corner that
A                       E
You walk each day in passing
A                       D
The elderly sales clerk
A                       E
With eyes full of suspicion
A                       D                   A*
The whole corporation's giving it permission

The little stairway
A little bit of carpet
A pair of mirrors that
Are facing one another
Out in both directions
A thousand little Julias
That come together
In the middle of Manhattan


Chorus: The chorus has the same chord progression running beneath it, but there is a
synth playing A and then D.
You waited since lunch
It all comes at once

Around the corner
The house that modern art built
I ask for modern art
To keep it out the closet
The people who might own it
The sins of pride and envy
And on the second floor
The Richard Cera Skate Park

Waited since lunch
It all comes at once

Along the park walk
Ask all of our questions
While all the horses
Race taxis in the winter
Look up at the buildings
Imagine who might live there
Imagining you're walking
On a bowl upon the sing there

You waited since lunch
It all comes at once

This riff is also played every so often. In the beginning Ezra only plays the first 3
but plays more as the song progresses.

An ancient business
a modern piece of glasswork.
Down on the corner that you
walk each day in passing.
The elderly sales clerk
won't eyes us with suspicion.
The whole immortal corporation's
giving it's permission.
A little stairway...
... Sit on the park wall
and ask all the right questions.
Why are the horses racing taxis in the winter?
Look up at the buildings
imagine who might live there,
imagining your wolfords in a ball
upon the sink there.
