                                            Tame Impala - Alter Ego
                       from their 2010 album 'Innerspeaker'

Guitar 1 - Rhythm
Guitar 2 - Synthy lead guitar

Intro:
Synth:
This is too fast to play on a guitar (unless you're a really fast player), and wasn't
intended to be played on a guitar, but I've included it anyway. Try to play it with
legato (e.g. slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs etc.):
