Broken Social Scene - Anthems For A 17 Year Old Girl tab

This song is one of BSS's best.. it's really instrumental; the banjo throughout the was 
base for the guitar part I wrote. I had to get creative, you kind of have to experiment 
it.

It would sound really sick with about 3 guitars, one playing the banjo part, and the 
two playing chords in synch until about half way through the song where one splits into the 
chords. Anyway here it is:


Banjo: (beginning)
E 0-----------0---------|
B ----2---0-------2---0-|
G ----------------------|
D ----------------------|
A ----------------------|
E ----------------------|

In the middle and towards the end the bass picks up with the banjo (you have to 
with this a bit but this is the scale it uses):

E 0--0------------------------------|
B -----2--2--0--0-------------------|
G -----------------1--1-------------|
D ----------------------2--2--2--2--|
A ----------------------------------|
E ----------------------------------|

Chords:
    A     Aadd9    E          A**

E   0       0      0          0

G   2       2      1          4
D   2       2      2          4
A   0       0      2          0
E   0       0      0          0


note: on A** in some parts put your pinky on the 5th fret on the high E, towawrds the 
of the measure, to immitate the violin (i'll point it out)
