The Kills
"Cheap and Cheerful"
Midnight Boom

Tuning : B F# B E G# C#

firstly...the guitar plays muted strings along with the drums, it isnt done live but in
recording hotel uses a boss dd-3 set to really quick delay time and strums muted strings.

then.. for the first verse he just plays C#

E   ------------------------------------| and so on..
B   ------------------------------------|
F# -------------------------------------|
B   14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-|

then for "i want you to be crazy.."

E   --------------------------------------|  x2
B   --------------------------------------|
F# ---------------------------------------|
B   17-17----16-16----14------------------|

(you can do this with any digital delay pedal, but lets face it..if youd like a digital 
pedal and youve got the cash..the DD-3 is probably the best)

then for the next verse he keeps on the 14th on the lower B string.. listen to the song
get the rhythm.

Then for the "its alright to be mean".. its (/ = slide)

E   ------------------------------------|
B   ------------------------------------|
F# -------------------------------------|
B   14/---12-14---12-14---12-14---------|

then it repeats the bit for "i want you to be crazy" but it keeps on the C# on the 

E   ----------------------------------------|
B   ----------------------------------------|
F# -----------------------------------------|
B   0-14-0---0-14-0---0-14-0----0-14-151515-|

finally it ends by repeating the "i want you to be crazy" part..(with muted strings in 

i think he uses a electro harmonix POG for some of the effects on the guitar and for
