//// NOTES ////

1. Improvise a bit! Sometimes he gets sloppy at the end of a bar - in a good way.
2. In the breakdown, ^ means bend. All else refer to upstrokes and downstrokes.
3. "Just the smell of summer can make me fall in love." Or at least write a 14 
year old tab. Classic! :)

Modest Mouse - Summer

Wake up, we're stealing cars
And we're going to bust into bars

It's 1996, 1997, it's 1998, we're all waiting for the year 2000
Just the smell of the summer can make me fall in love
Just the smell of the summer can make me fall in love

We go to the parties, and listen to the DJ's
Dance, dance, dance, and go crazy
Dance, dance, dance, and go crazy

She's a party queen and she's in party heaven
Her clock is stuck on late, got a first name basis at 7-11

Hold the slip 'n' slide, taste the sweat, it's salty
Irrigation ditch and a swimming hole, nationwide loved the movie

enjoy
