Tame Impala – Jam tab

                                     Tame Impala - Jam
                           from the 17 May, 2009 live recording
                                 Live at the Wireless/Toff

This is a song that Tame Impala used to perform live in their early days that they simply
called 'Jam'. It has never been officially released or studio recorded. There are two
full-length recordings of this performance available and the one that I have tabbed out
is the 2009 Live at the Wireless (also known as Live at the Toff) performance. The other
recording is Live at the Pines 2009, but I prefer this one. Go on YouTube and you
can find this song.

This is a really, really good song and is up there with favourite Tame Impala songs. I wish
Kevin would record a studio version and release it.
