                            Mind Mischief - Tame Impala
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tim van Kester
Tuning: D (whole step down)

This is a tab for the song Mind Mischief by Tame Impala. Fun song to play.
I'm not really sure about the chords, since I kinda suck in figuring out the
chords for every song I tabbed out so far.
Please post a comment when you have suggestions!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Intro/ Main riff
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------8h9----8--6--8---4------------------------------------------------|
G|-5--6----8h10---8--6--8---5h6p5--5-----------------------------------------|
D|-6--8~---------------------------6~----------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Around 1:35, he still plays the main riff, but also this is played:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-8h9--9--9--9---8---6--6--6--6\4-----8h9--9--9--9---8---6--6--6--6\4-------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-8h9--9--9--9---8---6--6--6--6\4-----8h9--9--9--9---8---6--6--6--6\3~------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Directly after that, this riff is played, with some overdrive:
e|---------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|---------8/10---8----------------------------|
D|-6--8~-------------8----6-6-6-6-6------6-----|
A|-----------------------------------6h8---6h8-|
E|---------------------------------------------|
This is repeated four times, where the last time misses the 'hammer-on' part.

Return to the main riff for a while, then:
e|-8------6------8------6------8------6------8------6------------------------|
B|-9------8------9------8------9------8------9------8------------------------|
G|-10-----8------10-----8------10-----8------10-----8------------------------|
D|-10-----8------10-----8------10-----8------10-----8------------------------|
A|-8------6------8------6------8------6------8------6------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After that, this riff is played again:
e|---------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|---------8/10---8----------------------------|
D|-6--8~-------------8----6-6-6-6-6------6-----|
A|-----------------------------------6h8---6h8-|
E|---------------------------------------------|
Same number of repeats as before.

e|---------------8------6------8------6------8------6------8------6----------|
B|---------------9------8------9------8------9------8------9------8----------|
G|-7/9\7~--------10-----8------10-----8------10-----8------10-----8----------|
D|---------------10-----8------10-----8------10-----8------10-----8----------|
A|---------------8------6------8------6------8------6------8------6----------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
These chords go on for a while. I'm sorry, but I'm too lazy to count them.

When he plays the Fm for the third time, this riff comes in:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-8h9-9-8h9p8\6----4h6-6-4h6p4--------8h9-9-8h9p8\6----4h6-6-4h6p4----------|
G|------------------------------5~----------------------------------5~-------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------8--6~|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Somewhere around 4:03, this lick is also played twice...
e|------------------|
B|------------------|
G|-/10---8--6---5~--|
D|------------------|
A|------------------|
E|------------------|

And the song ends with...
e|----------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------|
D|-6--8~----------------------------|
A|---------/8---6-------------------|
E|-----------------6----4-4-4-4-4~--|
