'Kings Of Leon'
'Milk'
From 'Aha Shake Heartbreak'

Tabbed by Bartus23Bg

Great song, pretty simple. Outro part for Lead is a little more difficult.
I've seen them playing it at 'Live at the O2, London' footage, so I'm 100% sure it's correct.


Caleb - Rhythm Guitar (Acoustic at album version, clean electric live)
Matthew - Lead Guitar (Distorted electric, mostly palm muted)


Intro & Verses 1,2 - Rhythm Guitar

This part is something Caleb plays live before an actual intro, it's different almost every time.
Usually it's like this:

e|----------------------------------------------|B|----------------------------------------------|G|----------------------------------------------|D|----------------------------------------------|A|-10-10-10s9-9--9--9s10-10-10-10s9-9--9--7s10--|E|-7--7--7s5--5--5--5s7--7--7--7s5--5--5--5s7---|
Then he goes to this riff, which he plays all over verses:
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|A|----10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---|E|--7---7---7---7---9---9---9---9---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5-----| * * * *
Right before Chorus, riff goes like this:
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|A|----10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--9---9---9---9---9---9---9-------|E|--7---7---7---7---9---9---9---9---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---0-----| * * * * *
* - emphasize these notes Chorus 1 Both guitar come in with the drums. They basically slide the two top fingers of G chord (32xxxx). Caleb plays the same pattern as in verses: Rhythm Guitar
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|A|----2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9---2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--|E|--3--3--3--3--5--5--5--5--10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10--3--3--3--3--5--5--5--5----| * * * * * *
* - emphasize these notes When drums stop, he plays this, also different lots of times.
e|--------------------|B|--------------------|G|--------------------|D|--------------------|A|----10s9---10s9--9--|E|---7------7----7----|
Lead Guitar Matthew plays it palm muted, and he stops with the drums stopping.
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|A|--2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9---2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4----|E|--3--3--3--3--5--5--5--5--10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10--3--3--3--3--5--5--5--5----|
^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ Verse 3 Lead Guitar Matthew plays this part without muting, he stars right after Caleb's Chorus ending.
e|--------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------|G|--------------------------------------|D|--------0-----2----4--4--2--0----0----|A|--0--2-----2-------------------2------|E|--------------------------------------| |(Here Caleb starts playing his Verse part, same as in 1&2)
e|-----------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------|G|-----------------------------------------|D|--------0-----2----4--4--2--0----0s2s4---|A|--0--2-----2-------------------2---------|E|-----------------------------------------|
You can play it like that, or play first part twice, Matt changes it on live gigs. At the time of 'I called and I called, but i can't get through...', he plays this, palm muted. It's actually half of his Outro riff.
e|-----------------------------|B|-----------------------------|G|--x-7-x-4-x-7--4--7s9~-------|D|-----------------------------|A|-----------------------------|E|-----------------------------|
e|-----------------------------|B|-----------------------------|G|--x-7-x-4-x-7--4--7s11~------|D|-----------------------------|A|-----------------------------|E|-----------------------------|
Rhythm Guitar - same as Verses, including the 'right before Chorus riff'. Chorus 2 It's just Chorus 1 played that - Riff, Riff, Caleb's Ending. Outro Lead Guitar Mathew plays it palm muted, clean at the studio version, distorted when they play it live.
e|--------------------------|B|--------------------------|G|--x-7-x-4-x-7--4--7s9~----|D|--------------------------|A|--------------------------|E|--------------------------|
e|--------------------------|B|--------------------------|G|--x-7-x-4-x-7--4--7s11~---|D|--------------------------|A|--------------------------|E|--------------------------|
e|--------------------------|B|--------------------------|G|--x-7-x-4-x-7--4--4s7~----|D|--------------------------|A|--------------------------|E|--------------------------|
e|--------------------------|B|--------------------------|G|--x-7-x-4-x-7--4--4s2~----|D|--------------------------|A|--------------------------|E|--------------------------|
Rhythm Guitar Caleb plays the Outro same as Verses, at the end of live performance he plays something like that, it's gettin' more quiet, it's hard to hear:
e|--------------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------------|G|--------------------------------------------|D|--------------------------------------------|A|----10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10----9-----|E|--7---7---7---7---9---9---9---9---5-5-------| * * *
* - emphasize these notes Enjoy!
