The Strokes - Last Nite tab

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             LAST NITE - The Strokes
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tabbed By: Chris Parker (Chris_Parker)

This is my fourth tab, though one wasn't published.

Anyway, I recently got into The Strokes, and I love them. This is probably
my favorite song by them. In fact, the first time I heard it was at my cousin's wedding, 
I'm sure you care about.

A general rule of them for indie EQ: Have more treble than bass, keep mids
fairly high, or to taste (like reverb), and use a light amount of gain.


This is really fun to sing along with, so I'll try to time the guitar with
the vocals as best as I can. I think the verse chorda are about four beats
per second, so I guess the tempo is like 120 bpm. (They're eigth notes by
my "calculations")

Okay, here we go, have fun and enjoy!

Guitars 1 & 2

C                                 Dm7
Last nite, she said, "Oh, baby, I feel so down.

       G                    Em7
Oh, it turns me off, when I feel left out."

C                                     Dm7
So I, turned around, "Oh, baby, don't care no more.

       G                        Em7
I know this for sure, I'm walkin' out that door."

C
Well, I've been in town for just about fifteen minutes now,

            Dm7                 G
And Baby, I feel so down, and I don't know why

       Em7
I keep walkin' for miles.

END

All right, that's it! Awesome song, I hopw you liked it (and that I got it
 right!). Okay, well if you have any questions or need some help (or want to
correct me!), click on my name above the tab and send me a PM, or feel free
to leave a comment on my profile page.

The only thin I might have off is the doubling of the main riff, that and
the amount of repeats, it's kind of hard to decipher.

All right, have fun playing this song!
