Modest Mouse

Song: The World at Large

Album: Good News for People Who Love Bad News

Tabbed by Kyle Rex

The album version intro has two guitars, the simplest way to get close to that is to 
play this:


e|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|B|-7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7/9---|-4------------------------------|G|-6---------------------------------|-6---6---6---6---6---6---6---6--|D|(8)--------------------------------|-----------------------------8--|A|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|
e|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|B|------0---0---0---0---0---0---2----|-2---------------------------2--|G|-4---------------------------------|-3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3--|D|(8)--------------------------------|--------------------------------|A|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|
I watched how Isaac Brock plays this song live and he plays higher notes on the lower strings (if that makes sense), like this:
e|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|G|-11--11--11--11--11--11--11--11/13-|-10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10-|D|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|A|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|
e|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|G|-8---------------------------------|--------------------------------|D|-----9---9---9---9---9---9---9/11--|-8---8---8---8---8---8---8---11-|A|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|
On the album version of this song, there is an overdubbed/second guitar with slight delay in the opening. The closest you can get with one guitar is to play this:
e|----------------------------------|--------------------------------|B|-----------------------------9----|-9------------------------------|G|-11--11--11--11--11--11--11--11/13|-10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10-|D|-11-------------------------------|-----------------------------13-|A|-13-------------------------------|--------------------------------|E|----------------------------------|--------------------------------|
e|----------------------------------|--------------------------------|B|----------------------------------|--------------------------------|G|-8--------------------------------|--------------------------------|D|-13---9---9---9---9---9---9---9/11|-8---8---8---8---8---8---8---11-|A|------------------------------13--|-13--------------------------13-|E|----------------------------------|--------------------------------|
Most of the intervals you don't hold down for the whole eighth note. You can always just have a second guitarist play the extra notes as well. Or just play the tab up top, which is easiest. Here is the backing guitar that comes in:
e|--------6---------------6-------|--------6---------------6-------|B|----7-------7-------7-------7---|----6-------6-------6-------6---|G|6---------------6---------------|6---------------6---------------|D|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|A|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
e|--------6---------------6-------|----------------6---------------|B|----7-------7-------7-------7---|--------6-----------6-------6---|G|8---------------8---------------|----6-------6-----------6-------|D|--------------------------------|8-------------------------------|A|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
Easiest way to play this is by barring the three high strings on the sixth fret the whole time.
