hi folks. i thought i'd show you the way i strum through this tune on my acoustic, solo.
only tab i've seen doesn't seem to have the bass riff right, but i could be wrong.
amongst yourselves...

the luxury
from road apples by the tragically hip

first the basic bass line, then some suggestions on how to work
in the Em chord. d=downstroke, u=up

...............................d........u............... stripped down*
e-------------------------------0-----------------------------0---------|
b--------------------- - 0------0--------------------------------3------|
g----------0-------- ---0------0----------------------------------------|
d---0-1-2----2-0---- -0-1-2----2-0----------2--0------------------------|
a-2------------------2--------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------0-------------0-------------|

the d-string bit has to roll, so i hammer on the first couple notes.
i'm a fingerpicker, so i hit the E bass with by thumb now and then. as long as you keep
a string fretted 2nd fret, you can "accidentally" hit the open strings while you're
during the verses, i'm not usually coordinated enough to play the above and sing at the 
time, so i simplify by just playing the Em and Em7 chords. a similar Am to Am7
accompanies the line "melancholy wine-soaked tenderness" and of course the counterparts 
that line in the rest of the verses.

* it sounds good to go from the lush, 6-string version to just the spare, stripped-down
for dramatic effect right before the third verse. the hip love to "clear the air" to add tension.

chorus: hit just the bass note first before strumming the rest of the Em and A chords.
hear the timing hopefully off the record.

golden rim.........inn..........tv
e--0----------------3---------0-----------0---------------------------|

repeat for next line of chorus, then back into Em bass figure.
