Arcade Fire - Modern Man tab

This is my first tab using this video as reference - http://www.youtube.com/watch?
v=iP2HbiTfJ8k. I also watched them live in concert and it seems correct. These are
the riffs that Win plays during, middle and outro of the song. Listen for them and
you'll hear it.


This is the riff while he sings the verses:

e|-------------------------------------|
B|2222222\111111/444\2222222\111111/444|
G|-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|

This is the riff between verses:

e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|-2-2/44\22/11/2--22/44/66/99\6--99-11\6-4422--99-11-69644--|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|


And this is the riff in the outro:

e|---------------------------|
B|---------------------------|
G|2-2222-1-111/44------------|
D|---------------------------|x4
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

Now, do this riff 4 times and on the 4th time do the exact same riff with a minor
change to slide into the outro riff like this:

e|---------------------------|
B|---------------------------|
G|2-2222-1-111/66------------|
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

when you slide into the 6th fret on the G string you then start to play this riff
til the song is over:

e|-------------4455------------------|
B|--5-5-5-5--------------------------|
G|-6-6-6-7-7p6-----------------------|
D|-----------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------|

the hand positioning can be a little tricky but it shouldn't be that much of a
problem. If you want, you can put your 2nd finger on the 6th and first finger on
the 5th and then to play the 7th fret with your third finger. Then simply use your
first finger to play the high e string. Repeat.
