                This is the tab for Mayday Parade's and Vic Fuentes' cover of Somebody That I
Used To Know (originally performed by Gotye feat. Kimbra)

I play the best bits of both guitars on my les paul on Drop D and it sounds 
great, probably one of the best covers I've ever heard!

There are also little distortion bits in the verses which I haven't included, 
they're not really that playable so I didn't bother.

dash-rendar:
'The way the lead guitar part is played involved an open E pedal tone, so they 
tuned down a half step. BUT this tab still works for people too lazy to tune down'
________________

Tuning: 
Guitar 1 - Drop D (You could play guitar one standard in honesty)
Guitar 2 - Standard or Drop D, doesn't matter.

* - Palm mute
~ - let note ring
x - mute note
h - hammer on
p - pull of

                  End on either of these notes, they're the same note
                  just an octave above each other. The 23 is used in
                  the song so play this if you can, but some guitars
                  only have 22 frets so I put 16 in to be universal!
