Tundra Desert Tab

   
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tundra/Desert by Modest Mouse
from This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I don't know why nobody tabbed this song, I love it. This is my first tab, don't be
surprised if it's not great. One last thing, like many of Modest Mouse's other earlier
songs this one has a lot of improvization so I didn't have a heart attack getting every
exact detail. Enjoy.

| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on

Verse (Note: This is the base for the verse. It will not keep this exact pattern for the
whole song. Little bits are also changed or added as a lot of it is improvised but don't
worry too much. Also, there are no exact number of measures to play this, just listen to
the song, you should know when the solo kicks in and from there on the first guitar will
go back to this again for the rest of the song)

Solo (Note: This seems right to me the first time it is played but later on in the song 
will come up again and a lot will be improvised so don't stick exactly to this the 
time).
