                This is definitely one of Animal Collective's best songs, and
unfortunately it cant be recreated by just a guitar, but
here is the skeleton of the song and you can try
adding in whatever instruments or sounds you like!


Intro:
I choose to play sixteenth notes on the D string
and strum the other parts of the chord in a
unpredictable fashion, and after each line of singing strum
the whole chord powerfully, but thats just my
way of playing it. Here's the chord you stay on the whole time.


e|-------|
B|----9--|
G|----x--|
D|----6--|
A|----x--|
E|----0--|

If you play a harmonic on the 7th fret of the A string it sounds nice too.
Towards the end of the intro I like to start strumming the whole chord to the rhythm of 
rim of the snare.

Rest of the song:
It follows a pattern the whole time through, save the beiginning of this part.

Give each chord two measures.

e|-------  then to   e|-------  then to  e|-------  then to  e|-------|
B|----9--            B|----10-           B|----9--           B|----5--|
G|----X--            G|----X--           G|----X--           G|----X--|
D|----6--            D|----7--           D|----6--           D|----2--|
A|----X--            A|----X--           A|----X--           A|----X--|
E|----0--            E|----0--           E|----0--           E|----0--|

After that, this pattern of chords will go on through the rest of the song.
Again, give two measures for each chord

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----9-------10-----12-----10-----9-----5---------------------------------|
G|----X-------X------X------X------X-----X---------------------------------|
D|----6-------7------9------7------6-----2---------------------------------|
A|----X-------X------X------X------X-----X---------------------------------|
E|----0-------0------0------0------0-----0---------------------------------|

Just keep those chords going. Start to fade away on the chord that you started on. 
Hope you figure out!
