modest mouse - willful suspension of disbelief

modest mouse - willful suspension of disbelief tabbed by: esco One of my favorite Modest Mouse songs. I tried my best to tab the whole song and i got all of the parts. I'm pretty certain of all of them, except for the scratchy guitar sliding noise that you can hear right at the beginning. I couldn't tell whether Isaac's bending the strings or using a whammy bar. Unfortunately i don't have a whammy bar but im pretty sure i got the notes right. The tuning im uncertain of too. im really sure it's standard, which is what i based the tab off of, but i dont know. i'm still experimenting with the tab. but for now, it's standard. There's a lot of effects in this song that make the guitar sound a certain way. I'm not sure which effects he uses but i know the notes are right. Make sure you look at the time counter for parts of the song. Enjoy :) questions/corrections: Tuning: Standard Intro 1x (0:00) e|----------------------------------------------| B|----------------------------------------------| G|--//3---5--3--2h3-----------------------------| D|------------------4---------------------------| A|--------------------3/6-----------------------| E|----------------------------------------------| The notes sound right.

Similar to the intro. Try bending the notes. (1:17) All of these parts are in order.
