Fang Island - Sideswiper tab version 1

FANG ISLAND
"SIDESWIPER"

www.fangisland.com

I don't know about the rest of their songs because nobody has tabbed them, but
this song is played in DROP D.

I had a bit of help from watching their live performance of this song on KEXP.
If you haven't seen it, definitely check it out.

Then toward the end Nick gets up high on the fretboard and pumps up the reverb. Just fool around with it and you'll get it.

I know I've missed quite a few harmonies, and I wasn't able to catch all the soloing/noodling at the end. If you'd like to add to this tab or correct it, drop a comment and I'll give credit where credit is due. Cheers.
