Artist: Killers
Song: When You Were Young


===THE KILLERS===
==When You Were Young==

Right I'm not gonna ramble on about nonsense like the others do but this is my first tab 
be nice... =]

Guitar 1 = Rhythm Guitar (slightly clean) - Standard Tuning E B G D A E
(instead of having to tune your guitar to Down 1/2 Step, I just tabbed it down a semitone)
Guitar 2 = Lead Guitar (slight overdrive) - Down 1/2 Step Eb Bb Gb Db Ab Eb
(for simplicity's sake I have just put it as standard tuning on the tab)

==Bridge==
There is no guitar in this bit eitha! =[
But what I would prefer to do is play this in a really light palm mute...

E|----------------------------------------------| x2
   ........ .... .... ................ ........

==Solo 2==

If you have a guitar that allows a whammy bar, rest your palm on the bridge whilst 
this on the lead in, it should give the correct effect.

Guitar 2
E|----------|
B|----------|
G|-14(x32!)-|
D|----------|
A|----------|
E|----------|

Guitar 1 plays regular whilst guitar 2 plays:
E|-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

==Lead Out==

Guitar 1 & 2 (consider guitar 2's tuning - move each fret up 1)

A|-22222222-4444-6666--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-22222222-|
E|----------------------------------------------| x2

On the piano bit near "talks like a gentlman", get guitar 2 to do this:
|--------------|
|--------------|
|--9-—7-5—-4---|
|--x—-x-x—-x-7-|
|--7—-5-3—-2-x—|
|------------5—|


The rest is pretty self explanatory!
Post all comments nicely along with any corrections if you have any, I am willing to 
criticism as this way I will learn!
Cheers for reading and peace out!
