Modest Mouse - Night On The Sun tab

Night on the Sun
by Modest Mouse, found on the Japanese Tour Ep
tab. by damonk
tuning:  e g# e g# b e (low to high)
issac plays this song on his danelectro
intro:
the intro riff is pretty easy (not as easy as the verse) but it is a
little tricky at first.
e  ------------------------------||-------------------------------------|
b  ------------------------------||-------------------------------------|
g# ------------------------------||-------------------------------------|
e  ------------------------------||-------------------------------------|
g# --------2^0---5^6-53-2^3--0--||--5-7-8-75-53-3-3--3-0----------------|
e  --0--4------------------------||--0-0-0-0---0---0-0--0---------------|
       repeat this three times       then play this
verse:
the verse is just two sets of harmonics been played in the whole notes.
e  ----12---------------------------7----------------------------------|
b  ----12---------------------------7----------------------------------|
g# ----12---------------------------7----------------------------------|
e  ----12---------------------------7----------------------------------|
g# ----12---------------------------7----------------------------------|
e  ----12---------------------------7----------------------------------|
       *harmonics                   *harmonics
make sure to hit all the notes in a quick downstroke, and not rake it,
to get it so sound right.
after like two repetitions of that, start strumming the harmonics to
the rhythm of the song.
solo:
a standard wicked ass issac solo.
e  -------------------||------------------------------------------------|
b  --3-----3--3-5-----||-----7-7-7-7-7^8-75-53--------------------------|
g# ----4-2------------||------------------------------------------------|
e  -------------------||------------------------------------------------|
g# -------------------||------------------------------------------------|
e  -------------------||------------------------------------------------|
     play this twice       then play this twice
e  -------------------||-----------------------------------------------|
b  --3-5-7-8-7-5-3----||-----10-----8-7-8-7-3---10-8-7-7^8-7-5-3-------|
g# -------------------||-----------------------------------------------|
e  -------------------||-----------------------------------------------|
g# -------------------||-----------------------------------------------|
e  -------------------||-----------------------------------------------|
     play this twice       then play this once
the last part:
issac is saying stuff like "if there's one thing i know about this town..."
and he plays stuff like this:
e  --------------------------------------------------------------------|
b  ------7-4-----------------------------------------------------------|
g# ----------5-3-2-0-2-------------------------------------------------|
e  --4^7---------------------------------------------------------------|
g# --------------------------------------------------------------------|
e  --------------------------------------------------------------------|
he does do variations of this theme, but i think its unessecary to
tab these out.  if yer band covers this song, this part should be yours.
the end.
