Arctic Monkeys - Plastic Tramp tab

Song: Plastic Tramp
Artist: Arctic Monkeys
Album: Fluorescent Adolescent

This is on the recently released fluorescent adolescent cd. I saw them live two months
at the Avalon in Boston and they were insane. Iím pretty sure this is how it goes for all
guitars. I put the notes and you should be able to figure out where they go if you just 
to the song
