Arctic Monkeys - When The Sun Goes Down tab

Ive checked all of the tabs of When the Sun Goes Down on this site, and although some of them
are really good, none of them seem to be 100 % accurate. 
And perhaps (probably) this isn't
either but at least it sound pretty
 close to whats played on the album, 
and also it looks
kind of
like this when Arctic Monkeys play it live (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRyWcge_nmg and
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Nyzae8hYTY). Use this and the bass tab version 3 featured
on this site and your pretty close to sounding like the real deal.

Hope you enjoy it! A smashing tune from the best band in years and I personally think
the best tab Ive seen of it so far.

Let ring


Followed by short pause/break. Then Alex sings:

I said: hes a scumbag, dont you know!?

And on know both Alex and Jamie start playing. From now on until the outro, both 
guitars should be distorted. 

So, this is the first part of the first bridge, middle 8 or what you'd
prefer to call it.


GUITAR ONE (ALEX)

This is not the exact strumming pattern; youll have
 to listen to the record to catch
the correct strumming.
