Tame Impala - The Bold Arrow Of Time tab

                       Tame Impala - The Bold Arrow of Time
                        from their 2010 album Innerspeaker

Intro:
The bends in the main riff are quarter step bends, which is basically bending to
halfway between the two notes, which are G and G# in this instance. It's used a lot
in blues playing (listen to the main riff to Spoonful by Cream to get a good
example). The bend is only slight, so don't over-think it.
