Them Crooked Vultures - Dead End Friends tab

Them Crooked Vultures - "Dead End Friends"
From Their Debut Album
Tabbed By: jjhand, with help from Mark DiFranco's tab
Tuning - Guitar 1: Standard
         Guitar 2: Drop Db


When playing live, it looks like Josh & Alain are
playing in standard tuning, but the album version has
a few low Db notes so I wrote the lead as downtuned.
Another tuning may have been used but I'm guessing.
Please rate & comment.
