Is This It Tab

   
Band: The Strokes
Album: Is This It
Song: Is This It
STANDARD TUNING

I've seen so many wrong tabs on here so I decided to make one myself.  I'd say it's 100% correct since I watched them on Mad tv.
There are TWO guitarists in The Strokes.  Every tab in The Strokes section that does not have two guitar parts IS WRONG.

VERSE 1-
Guitar 1:

e-----5---5---3---3---5---5---3---3---6---6---3---3---6---6---3---3------------------------- 
B--6---6---5---5---6---6---5---5---6---6--5---5---6---6---5----5----------------------------
G-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
play that 2x
Guitar 2:
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B--6---6---5---3----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
play that 8x

Guitar 2's timing is every other note played by Guitar 1.  They both start at the same time in the beginning.  Notice how the 6's
match up in the beginning of both Guitar's?  If you listen to the song carefully, you'll know what I'm talking about.

CHORUS
Guitar 1:
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B-6---6---6---6---6---6---6---6-----5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---------------------------
G---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7-----7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7-------------------------
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
play that 2x
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/strokes/is_this_it_tab_ver_3.html ]
Guitar 2:
PART A                           PART B
e--5----                                     e--8---
B--6----                                     B--8---
G--7--- Play this 16x then                   G--9---   Play this 16x
D--7---                                      D--10--
A--5---                                      A--10--
E--x---                                      E--8---

E--x                       
                                 Both guitars play at the exact same time and play the 16 strokes 4x (64 strokes each guitar)

A--8
E--6

Okay I've gone into a lot more detail than a lot of tabs out there so that anyone can play this great song.  If you have anything to say
about my tab that I've worked harder typing than tabbing on my guitar, email me at:  AlternativeMess@aol.com.  Don't complain
about no timing for the singing parts.  This is a guitar tab =P.  I might have messed up how many strokes there are, but the chords 
are right and I'm pretty sure they're right.

Yeah, I'm a chick.  So what?  My tab is better than all of the other ones for this song. =)
