Deerhunter – Activa tab

Deerhunter
Activa
From the album "Microcastle"

The whole song is just the chords C D B C repeated.
But I wrote it out anyway, just for completeness.

Just an aside of my own: This song is very simple, but it gives you room to improvise or experiment with different guitar sounds. You can add feedback, scrape-picking, harmonics, etc. to make it sound more demented. They like to improvise sounds when playing this (for example, listen to the Daytrotter version compared to the album version). And that's it! Enjoy. Feel free to ask questions if necessary.
