Future Starts Slow Tabs

(ver. 2) Click to play this song!
The Kills
First time tabbing but I have studied how he plays this live several times and 
this is officially it!

DD-3 Pedal 50 delay time everything else 12 o'clock (volume up all the way)
A POG to lower octave like a bass

Intro (Played throughout song as well)

C# ----888---8----888---888-|
G# -----------6-------------|
E  -------------------------|
B  -------------------------|
F# -4b-----8----------8-----|
B  -------------8-----------|
(Later in the song he bails on the last 3 notes take a listen)
Also on that 4b...he bends it to make it sound like a 5 but you can just play a 5 if its 
too much for your fingers (beginner tip)

This is the verse part (fixed it from what I originally had)
Note : he throws in mute notes every once and a while during the pauses
C# --------------------------------------|
G# --------------------------------------|
E  --------------------------------------|
B  --------------------------------------|
F# --------------------------------------|
B  -12--------15----12----15----15-17-12-|

During the bridge "Theres a time for second best..."
(Listen for the tempo cause im only putting it as one note each but its a rapid down 
stroke with the thumb until the switch) Sounds like some tremolo mixed with a second POG 
organ sound.

C# ------------------------|
G# ------------------------|
E  ------------------------|
B  ------------------------|
F# -5----8---------3-------|
B  -----------8------------|

Goes back to Intro

C# -------------------------|
G# -------------------------|
E  -------------------------|
B  -------------------------|
F# -4b-4b-4b-4b-4b-4b-4b-4--|b
B  -------------------------|
 (repeat while drums are going)
Alternate way to do this is to hit the low B string on the 12th fret

Thats it! Its a fun song to learn
