OFF OF "CHILDISH PRODIGY"
2009 MATADOR RECORDS

this tab is pretty rough, just an outline of the song.. more based off live versions.


**TUNING**
low to high

G-G-C-G-B-E

tune the A string down a whole step to G. tune the low E up one and a half steps to G. 
tune the D string down one step to C.

*NOTE* there is capo on the 1st fret for this one

intro riff - (if you can, this sounds good looped)

but when going through the second time hit the D after you slide to the 5th fret
E-0------------0--------0-------------|
