Deerhunter - Nothing Ever Happened tab

Intro [0:18 - 0:44]
The start of the song is played by the bass, but
palm muting an A chord sounds similar.

 3. See   thru the wind  to   awa-  kened    stream
 4. Focus on   the depth that was   ne-  ver there

 4. No- thing's   ea-   sy,      no-   thing's fair

Waiting for something, for nothing      |



From now on I'll tab Guit1 and Guit2 seperately as
the riffs they play overlap.

Guitar1 now uses an octave pedal, one octave up.

Alternatively, you could play this instead:
Guit1 [5:09 - End]
|--14-x4-------12-x4------------------------------|
|-------------------------14-x4-------------------|
|-------11-x4-------9-x8--------------------------|
|------------------------------11-x12-------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|



Guit2 [2:25 - 2:52]
Guitar 2 messes around with the Asus2 chord and with
the D major scale.

Guit2 [2:52 - 3:03]
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------/4-------------------|
|---------------------------------5---5-----------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|

|-------------------------------------------------|

|--------------------2--/4------------------------|
|--------------2-4-5---------5---5----------------| Repeat
|--------2-4-5------------------------------------|
|------5------------------------------------------|

Guit2 [3:03 - 4:06]

|-------------------------------------------------|
|-2-4/7-6/9-6/11-9-7-6-4/2------2-----------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
The fuzz makes Guit2 pretty much indistinguishable,
but I can hear the chord
|-3-
|-5-
|-2-

But try messing about with the D major scale :)

Guit2 [4:06 - 4:08]

Guit2 [4:08 - End]
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------h14---------------------------------|
|-------------------------h14---------------------|  Repeat 'til end of song
|----------h14-----h11-h14------------------------| 
|-------h12---------------------------------------|

In this part, there is no plucking the strings,
just finger tapping. Use left hand for frets 11+12, right for 14
