The Boys Of Summer Tab

   
The Ataris
The Boys of Summer (Don Henley cover)
So Long, Astoria (2003)
23/05/03 - about teatime.
Tabbed by: Andy (I_Remain_in_Shadows_Growing_Wings@hotmail.com)

Nice little ditty off the new Ataris album, but I couldn't find a single tab for
it, so I decided to make my own. Why? 'cause I have nothing else to do (hurray
for exam time!) and want to see if I can completely deconstruct the whole thing by ear :)


This song is basically a two guitar,two chord pattern song, but in true Kris Roe
style, it has some third/fourth guitar riffs and augmentations to make it just
that little more interesting, so I'll arrange it into song sections, and label
any parts that come up more than once as PATTERNS (chords) or RIFFS. It may seem
a little confusing, but I really triedto make this tab as complete as possible,
so you don't need to worry about some of the stuff in here...just listen to the
music and use yer head :)

Well, there you have it. I think it's all pretty much correct and has every part;
it's pretty exhaustive...well, it was pretty exhausting at least. Enjoy
yourselves, girls and boys, and good luck! (not that y'all need it!) E-mail me if
there's something wrong with it, or with any criticism, praise, or foamy-mouthed hatred.

~BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER AND PARTY ON~
