The Strokes - Gratisfaction

Tabbed by ear by Patrick Corcoran.

Tab about 95% accurate. (There are two lead parts playing at once throughout much of
this song, and while playing this on my guitar I was attempting to balance/play both parts
simultaneously to the best extent possible, so both parts are sort of meshed together 
here in the tab at a slight cost of accuracy.)

For a video of me playing this, see here:
