               CARRY ME IN - Cage The Elephant

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 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 :)

Acoustic part : tremolo picking
e|----------------------|-----------------------------------|

Chord diagramG+G|----------------------|-----------------------------------|
Chord diagramD MajorD|----------------------|-----------------------------------|
Chord diagramA augmentedA|---------------11-8---|--8------10-8----------------------|
Chord diagramE MajorE|---6-9-6-9-6-9--------|--------------12-------------------|

Repeat the first half, then play

e|---6-6-6-6-6---------------------------------------------|

Chord diagramA augmentedA|---8-8-8-8-8---------------------------------------------|
Chord diagramE MajorE|---6-6-6-6-6---------------------------------------------|

Now "tremolo strum" those chords, one measure each

e|---6---4---6---4-------------------------------------|
Chord diagramBB|---6---6---8---4-------------------------------------|
Chord diagramG+G|---6---6---8---5-------------------------------------|
Chord diagramD MajorD|---8---6---8---6-------------------------------------|
Chord diagramA augmentedA|---8---4---6---6-------------------------------------|
Chord diagramE MajorE|---6-----------4-------------------------------------|

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|
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|
Chord diagramG+G|--5--5--5--x--|6-6-6--6-6-6-6|--5--5--5--x--|8-8-8-8-6-6-6-6|
Chord diagramD MajorD|--6--6--6--x--|8-8-8--8-8-8-8|--6--6--6--x--|8-8-8-8-6-6-6-6|
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|
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-------------------------------|
Chord diagramBB|----6----6----6----6---4-4-4--4-4-4-------------------------------|
Chord diagramG+G|----6----6----6----6---5-5-5--5-5-5-------------------------------|
Chord diagramD MajorD|--8-8--8-8--8-8--8-8---6-6-6--6-6-6-------------------------------|
Chord diagramA augmentedA|--8-8--8-8--8-8--8-8---6-6-6--6-6-6-------------------------------|
Chord diagramE MajorE|--6-6--6-6--6-6--6-6---4-4-4--4-4-4-------------------------------|

Then with distortion, repeat that little riff

e|------------------------------------------------------|
Chord diagramBB|------------------------------------------------------|
Chord diagramG+G|-----------------99999--------------------------------|
Chord diagramD MajorD|-----------------99999--------------------------------|
Chord diagramA augmentedA|-----------------77777--------------------------------|
Chord diagramE MajorE|-4-6-4-6-4-6-4-6--------------------------------------|

Then play (this is not exact but sounds good)
e|---------------------------------------|

Chord diagramD MajorD|--9-10-9-7-9-10-6----------------------|
