-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: muffin97

The Black Keys performed this new song off of Turn Blue at their gig for BBC Radio 1 
with Zane Lowe. I
can´t transcribe the official studio version of "Bullet In The Brain" because the album 
is not out yet,
so this is just the live version (although I don´t think the studio version will be 
VERY different from this.) It is a pretty cool and psychedelic track and very easy to play:


Tuning: Standard

Intro:

Dan does some random finger-picking, which I don´t wanna figure out because I´m quite 
sure this part
will be a bit different on the album version. Also, Dan is known to change 
finger-picking parts every
time he plays one (see Little Black Submarines, he does a different kind of picking 
every time). The
chords are correct, though.

B|--6-------------------------------3-----------------1----|
G|--7-------------------------------4-----------------2----|
D|--7-------------------------------5-----------------3----|
A|--5-------------------------------5-----------------3----|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|


Then the other instruments join the guitar and Dan brings in some fuzz. The chords are 
the same, until
the main keyboard theme comes in. From then on, Dan plays this:


Chorus/Intro 2:

I was able to figure out the keyboard part, too (2x):

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------br-------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--7----/10----/12----/12-----12----------7----/10----/12----\3----\5-----------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Verse:

Richard "Dick" Swift plays a funky bass line, that you can play like this on guitar (it 
remains the samethroughout the whole verse, just repeat):


e|------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|-----5--3----3----------------------------|
E|--3-------------5--3--3----1----3----1----|


The rest of the song is just a repeating of the parts.
