    Nice work, Buttock. I was thinking about doing this one myself. Now I don’t have to. Thanks.

    My pleasure!
    Yeah…I shoulda just made my name Nelson.
    I kind of accidentally used Buttock because that’s my default name for EVERYTHING. Hehe…silly auto-pilot brain…

    Could someone kindly chord this? I’m awful with tabs and these don’t sound right on my uke.

  7. Nelson May 3rd, 2008 10:10 pm

  11. claire August 26th, 2009 7:52 pm

    thats the order the strings have to be in yeah?? mine is strung A, C, G, E…is that wrong?

  12. Zakulele August 26th, 2009 9:16 pm

    If you like it, then it’s right, but GCEA (from bottom to top) it the standard for C-Tuning.

    thanks! more vampire weekend! (:

  14. Landon April 27th, 2010 5:16 pm

    whats the strum pattern?

  15. Anders May 2nd, 2010 10:21 am

    Nice one! Easy, when you first get into it! :D

  16. Anders May 2nd, 2010 10:25 am

    Btw., Zakulele, isn’t the standard the opposite of what you write? :) GCEA from top to bottom? ;)

    what about the part of the song that goes right after the flute section? it sounds a bit different to me. i think it starts at 1:08 in the music video. help?

  18. Mark July 26th, 2010 7:30 pm

    I am having a hard time strumming only two chords at one time. Do y’all use a pick for this song?

  19. Justine May 30th, 2011 4:30 am

    strumming this song is a bit hard because it’s pretty fast. i suggest playing these chords, much easier! :)
    (i dont know what some of the chords are…)
    A-447 225 00000000
    E-555 333 22222222
    C-444 222 22222222
    G-666 444 22222222
    (bar these ones) (D)
    Hope this helped!

    Thanks, great tab!!
    However, in the second section, it seems to me that it actually goes something like this:
    A|—————————————-
    E|—5-5-5-5-3-3-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2–
    C|—6-6-6-6-4-4-4-6-6-2-2-2-2-2-2-2–
    G|—————————————-
    (to get that F# in there)

  21. Theo June 11th, 2011 12:04 pm

    Oh no wait, just listened to it again and realized that that never actually happens. Oh well, it’s a nice variation nonetheless.

  22. cam March 4th, 2012 7:10 am

    what is the tuning on this? standard tuning sounds way off :\

Got something to say?
