                             Happy Ending : The Strokes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: nitromuse
E-mail: nitromuse@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard


This is my first tab, so I'm excited. 
This also means I'll be happy to edit this with any corrections you send my way. 
Not everything is here, but there is enough to do while you're not singing. 
Go me. 


For the verses you can play the chorus chords instead if you like their sound.
Just playing the Em and D for the verse adds some contrast to the chorus. 
I like this for acoustic playing.
 

Additionally, here are the shapes I play:


        Em  D  F#m A  A*  G*  Bm  F#m7* F#m7

Em                                D              
Change my mind              2,000 times before
Em                         D                   
Seen a knight        Dance on the side of the road
