New York City Cops Tab

   
Band: The Strokes
Track: New York City Cops
Album: Is This It? (First Edition)
Guitarist(s): Albert Hammond Junior (Guitar 1)
	      Nick Valensi (Guitar 2)	
Date: 20/09/03
Tabbed by: Tomsk


Ok, I tabbed the song from start to finish, this song was removed from the first
album in respect of the September 11th events.  It's still quite accessible and a
well good anthem.  I've seen some good versions of this but i've included both
guitar parts, great to play with someone else.
