Truckers Atlas Tab

   
Truckers Atlas – by Modest Mouse
Album: Lonesome Crowded West

Sounds just like Brock on the neck single coil of my Epiphone S-600 (strat copy) on a fender clean amp. Standard tuning.

Verse

e---------[----------------------------------------------------
B---------[------------------------------------4---------------
G---------[-----------4-----------------------------------------
D---------[------------------------------------------------------
A---------[--------------------------4--4-----------4/7--------
E----12\0—[---4--4------4-0-0-0--------------------------------

(1st time only)

Pre-Chorus (“This truckers atlas roads the ways…”)

Strum patterns are obvious (listen to the song), here are the 3 chords (they’re just octaves). You can add a fuller sound by leaving the low E open and letting it ring.

e----------------
B---------------
G--9----6----4
D--x----x----x
A--7----4----2
E---------------

Chorus (“I don’t feel and I feel great…”)

Chorus 2 (“Going up going over to Montana…”)

Post-Chorus (“Do you speak the lingo?”) 

This is the easiest part of the song. Just improvise w/ hammering on and bending the 2nd frets on the low E and A strings until it sounds right… something like this

A-----------------------0p2^2^--------------------
E--0-0-0h2p0h2p0-------------------------------

Outro

Just improvise on the theme, that’s all the band does.
