                             Dull Life - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Robert Farrell
Email:Rfarrell369(at)msn(dot)com

Feel free to email corrections, after all this is my first tab.

Tuning:Standard

Intro
e|---7---7---7---7-|
B|-----------------|
G|-----------------| x4
D|-----------------|
A|-----------------|
E|-7---7---7---7---|
                                                                    +
e|---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7--7-|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------7-|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------7-| x2
D|------------------------------------------------------------------7-|
A|-------------------------------------------------5---5---5---5----7-|
E|-7---7---7---7---5---5---5---5---0---0---0---0--------------------7-|

Verse - This parts tricky to tab the rhythm into (tried my best) but it's easy to
pick up if you listen to the song
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----15-----12-----10----7----5------------------------------------15-|
G|-16-----14-----11-----9----7---4---4-7---7-9---9-11-11---11-14-16----| x2
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

This part once again was tricky to tab the rhythm into (there are also a couple 
alternate ways to play this but this seems to be the easiest) once again just 
listen to the song you should naturally play the chords correctly. Also note the
third chord of each bar is more of a quick transition to the fourth.
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------6--6-7----9-9-7-----------------------------7---|x2
D|-9-11-11-12--7-11-11-12--5-6--6-7--4-9-9-7--5-7-7-9--7-9-9-10--9-9-9-9-7-9-|
A|-9-11-11-12--7-11-11-12--5-4--4-5--4-7-7-5--5-7-7-9--7-9-9-10--9-9-9-9-5-9-|
E|-7-9--9--10--5-9--9--10--3---------2--------3-5-5-7--5-7-7-9---7-7-7-7---7-|

This next section is a little annoying, there are some chords played but I'm lost
as to what they are exactly (there are also harmonics on the seventh from what I 
can hear but I may be nuts), for now have fun with the little bass line thats played
on top, once again listen to the song for the rhythm xD
e|------------|
B|------------|
G|------------| x24 (seriously though so much more happens in this section)
D|------------|
A|------5-5---|
E|-5--7-----7-|

Once again the verse
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----15-----12-----10----7----5------------------------------------15-|
G|-16-----14-----11-----9----7---4---4-7---7-9---9-11-11---11-14-16----| x2
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

After you repeat the verse twice play this, each chord is played for 1 bar, tremolo picking 
(I'm not writing them in individually but you get the picture) This may even be played behind
the verse...
e|----------------|
B|-12--15--17--19-| x2
G|-11--14--16--18-|
D|----------------|
A|----------------|
E|----------------|

Once again these chords are played
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------6--6-7----9-9-7-----------------------------7---|x2
D|-9-11-11-12--7-11-11-12--5-6--6-7--4-9-9-7--5-7-7-9--7-9-9-10--9-9-9-9-7-9-|
A|-9-11-11-12--7-11-11-12--5-4--4-5--4-7-7-5--5-7-7-9--7-9-9-10--9-9-9-9-5-9-|
E|-7-9--9--10--5-9--9--10--3---------2--------3-5-5-7--5-7-7-9---7-7-7-7---7-|

Bridge - Alright heres my biggest failing I know roughly where the notes are I just 
can't seem to ever get this right though, but heres what it is roughly (if you have 
this down please email me cause its beginning to frustrate me, the delay seems to be 
throwing me off) Other than that its played with a hell of alot of reverb and delay
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------15--15---------------15--15---------------15--15---------------17-|
G|--16-16---------16-16\\14-14---------14-14\\12-12---------12-12//18-18-----|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|----------|
B|-17----17-|
G|----18----|
D|----------|
A|----------|
E|----------|

After the annoying bridge back to the verse twice then end it with the chords
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----15-----12-----10----7----5------------------------------------15-|
G|-16-----14-----11-----9----7---4---4-7---7-9---9-11-11---11-14-16----| x2
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------6--6-7----9-9-7-----------------------------7---|x1
D|-9-11-11-12--7-11-11-12--5-6--6-7--4-9-9-7--5-7-7-9--7-9-9-10--9-9-9-9-7-9-|
A|-9-11-11-12--7-11-11-12--5-4--4-5--4-7-7-5--5-7-7-9--7-9-9-10--9-9-9-9-5-9-|
E|-7-9--9--10--5-9--9--10--3---------2--------3-5-5-7--5-7-7-9---7-7-7-7---7-|

Hey Rob, nice tab
Although the introduction is actually
Intro
e|-----------------|
B|--7----7----7----|
G|-----------------| x4
D|-----------------|
A|-----------------|
E|-7---7---7---7---|

and the rest of the introduction is the 7th fret on the B string too.

Yup you're completely right in that, can't believe I put that down on the e string (I play it on the B), AH well...

e|------------|
B|------------|
G|------------| x24 During this section the "chords" I could hear are in
D|------------| fact just harmonics on the 7th, the bass line is played
A|------5-5---| during the entire section where as the chords come in
E|-5--7-----7-| after the 6th bar and for the last couple of bars as a transition.
Also the correction by alexandr is correct the high note in the intro is definately a 7 on the B string xD as well.
