                             CARRY ME IN - Cage The Elephant
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Superkebab
Tuning:Standard

Hi, here's my first tab. It's just a base, not very accurate, but I tab what I ear
because it's impossible to find a tab for this song.
I think the real tuning is 1/2 town down so you can play the song on the A chord diagramA augmentedA string
but I don't want to change the tuning of my guitar.

Listen to the song for the rhythm, it's quite difficult :)

Again the first part
First break, the rhythm changes, slower than the beginning of the song :

e|--4--4--4--x--|6-6-6--6-6-6-6|--4--4--4--x--|6-6-6-6-4-4-4-4|
A chord diagramBB|--4--4--4--x--|6-6-6--6-6-6-6|--4--4--4--x--|8-8-8-8-6-6-6-6|

A chord diagramA augmentedA|--6--6--6--x--|8-8-8--8-8-8-8|--6--6--6--x--|6-6-6-6-4-4-4-4|
A chord diagramE MajorE|--4--4--4--x--|6-6-6--6-6-6-6|--4--4--4--x--|---------------|

Second break

Play that (not exact, I can't figure the exact chord, I think it's not a guitar playin that)

e|----6----6----6----6---4-4-4--4-4-4-------------------------------|
A chord diagramBB|----6----6----6----6---4-4-4--4-4-4-------------------------------|

A chord diagramE MajorE|--6-6--6-6--6-6--6-6---4-4-4--4-4-4-------------------------------|

Then with distortion, repeat that little riff
