Fake Tales of San Francisco (Guitar 1)

Animated Fake Tales of San Francisco (Guitar 1) tab by Arctic Monkeys on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

A nice, easy song to play. This is the main guitar part and the main riff you see from the start is a little B pentatonic minor based lick.

B pentatonic minor: B D E F# A (B octave)

It starts on the B note, and repeats the same lick for 3 times. The 4th time there is a slightly different riff played. Just keep repeating this 4-bar pattern until here. Then there is a break where the bass takes over. The guitar plays along with the bass just once (here). If you are playing for yourself, you may as well play that lick along with the bass throughout the break, rather than doing nothing!

The B pentatonic minor riff is played once more starting here. There's nothing new until the powerchord thumping part kicks in.

The chords here are: B5 - G5 - E5 - B5 - little lick

This repeats many times until the outro, where you just mute and pick 'double stops' (2 adjacent notes) until the end!
