Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Four Leafed Clover   Modest Mouse



Modest Mouse
Four Leafed Clover
off the album Sad Sappy Sucker. 

tabbed by: esco

im not sure if everyone has heard this song, but it's a damn good one. i had to tab it.
it's pretty fun to play too. it was kinda hard to figure out what was being played from
the poor quality of the song, well at least from my version of the song. just follow the
tab and listen to the song and you'll get it. not a hard one to play at all. i couldn't
tell whether one part was played with power chords or octaves. knowing modest mouse
songs, there's a chance it might be octaves. just a side note. 

i know there's another small guitar part in the chorus that i didn't tab out. to be
honest, i couldn't really hear it well to tab it as accurately as i could. but just
improvise and play what you hear. 
enjoy it like apple pie.
