Tighten Up Tab

   
Tabbed by:Coldplay_kid
Tuning:standard

my first tab. I know that the licks are right but the chords 
could be slightly off.listen to the song for timing. 
The intro and the verse goes like this. 
you just strum the chords twice and mute them in between each strum.

Chords:
   
    F#       E          Bb          C#b        

e|--9--------7-----------7-----------9----|
B|--10-------9-----------7-----------9----|
G|--11-------9-----------7-----------9----|
D|--11-------9-----------9-----------11---|
A|--9--------7-----------9-----------11---|
E|--9--------7-----------7-----------9----|

After the intro or the end of a verse the main lick starts. 
there are 2 different licks. each lick gets played twice in 
the song but they alternate. listen to the song so you understand
what im talking about.

lick 1:

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--5h7--7--5h7--5------------5------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------6--4--6-----6h4--6--4---2-2h4--4--2h4--2------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------4--2--4---|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-----------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|-2-2-------------------------------------|
A|-------4--2------------------------------|
E|-----------------5----2------------------|



the second main lick goes like this.(you play the second lick 
after the second verse.)

lick 2:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/the_black_keys/tighten_up_tab.html ]
e|---------------------------|
B|--5h7--7--5h7--5-----------|
G|-------------------6--4----|    x3
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

then in it with this...

e|---------------------------|
B|----5----------------------|
G|--6-----6--4--2------------|    
D|------------------4--2-----|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

then you play this again basically but in a more up-beat kind of way. 
i didnt add come parts due to lazyness, but if you listen to the 
recording he plays it a bit different the third time you repeat it.

this is how it goes the second time you play it.

e|---------------------------|
B|---7-7---5h7-5-------------|
G|-----------------6--4------|    x3
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

then it ends with...

e|---------------------------|
B|------5--------------------|
G|--6-6----6--4--2-----------|    
D|------------------4--2-----|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

next it the bridge, at the beggining there are some special effects, 
ignore that part. or just be creative. he just plays chords. 
listen to the recording again for the right timming and strumming.

 Chords:
   
    F#      C#b         A        B

e|--9--------9----------5--------7---|
B|--10-------9----------5--------7---|
G|--11-------9----------6--------8---|
D|--11-------11---------7--------9---|
A|--9--------11---------7--------9---|
E|--9--------9----------5--------7---|

after this it just got back to the second lick and he plays 
it twice with some effects and ends with this after..

e|---------------------------|
B|---------------------------|
G|---------------------------|    
D|---------------------------|
A|---4--2--------------------|
E|----------5-----2----------|

let the last not just ring out.
