Tuning: Standard

This is my own interpretation of the song that i've picked up seeing them live and 
along with the record. It may not be exactly as it's played, since i'm pretty sure ben's 
is in an alternate tuning, but it's all right, play along and see if you agree

Itís also my first tab post, so any constructive criticism is very welcome!


Bass intro plays Db 8 counts
Then guitars enter playing Db octaves:
  Db
e|-x-|
B|-x-|
G|-6-| Play for 16 counts
D|-x-|
A|-4-|
E|-x-|

Over that the lead plays this 8 times over the 16 counts

e|-------------|
B|-9p6-6-----6-|
G|-------8p6---|
D|-------------|
A|-------------|
E|-------------|

This lead riff continues over this next group of chords until the vocals begin
   Db      Eb      F
e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------|
G|-6-6-6-6/8-8-8-8/10101010101010101010101010101010-|
D|-x-x-x-x/x-x-x-x/x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--|
A|-4-4-4-4/6-6-6-6/8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--|
E|--------------------------------------------------|

Once the vocals begin, this progression continues until the chorus. Thereís a little 
riff that repeats after each line of the vocals, hereís that:

e|----------------|
B|----------------|
G|-13-11--10-(10)-|
D|----------------|
A|----------------|
E|----------------|
Simple enough to work in with the rhythm on one guitar if you choose to.

Next is the chorus, itís played in octaves just like the rest, and with the same rhythm. 
numbers after the chord is the fret of itís root on the 5th string for referenceHere it 
over the lyrics:

Eb(6)
When islands want to coast, islands want to coast,
          C(3)      Db(4)       Eb(6)      F(8)
they'll know how,    yeah, they'll know how.

(I know, I hate chord tabs too, but just play those octaves and youíll hear where the 
are)

next comes the ďOhh ohhh ohhhĒ part, some people say heís saying ďhomeĒ I really donít know.

The chords are strummed double the number of timeís Iíve tabbed them, just did that to 
space, again, just listen to the song. Underneath Iíve tabbed a second guitar that plays 
little lead parts.
   Ohh     ohhh     ohhhh
e|----------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------|
G|--101010105-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|x4
D|--x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-|
A|--8-8-8-8-3-3-3-3-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|
E|----------------------------------|
Over first two repeats:
e|----------------------------------|
B|---------------------------6----9-|
G|------------------6----8----------|
D|--------------------------(3)--(6)|
A|-----------------(4)--(6)---------|
E|----------------------------------|
Over third:
e|----------------------------------|
B|--6-9--6-6---------9-6---------6--|
G|--------8-8--6-5-------8-5-6-8----|
D|-----------------8----------------|
A|--^vocal-melody--^-^guitar-riff^--|
E|----------------------------------|
Over last:
e|----------------------------------|
B|-------------------9-6---------6--|
G|--10--108-5------6-----8-5-6-8----|
D|--x---x-x-x------x----------------|
A|--8---8-6-3------4----------------|
E|--^vocal--melody-^-^guitar-riff^--|

Now After that thereís a little BRIDGE that repeats four times, the fourth time has a 
ending

First three:
e|----------------------------------|
B|--111111119-9-9-9-----------------|
G|--x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-101010108---6---|
D|--8-8-8-8-6-6-6-6-x-x-x-x-x---x---|
A|------------------8-8-8-8-6---4---|
E|----------------------------------|
Last time:
e|----------------------------------|
B|--111111119-9-9-9-----------------|
G|--x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-6---6---6---6---|
D|--8-8-8-8-6-6-6-6-x---x---x---x---|
A|------------------4---4---4---4---|
E|----------------------------------|

Thatís all the parts.
The intro/verse repeats, the after chorus, then the bridge.
The song ends on the Db octave.

Enjoy!
