Walkmen - New Country
This is a beautiful tune with a simple tab; however, it takes some practice to play and sing
while varying the tempo the way the band does. It's easier to fingerpick, but if you play it
with a pick you can get closer to the pensive, sustained sound the band has. The band also
has a backup guitar to add atmosphere as the song progresses, but this tab is just for the
lead. There's some fiddling at the beginning, but I begin the tab right at the verse, which
begins a few seconds in.

For those of you who know time signatures, the time of this song is 12/8. That's 4 down
beats, where each measure's beat sounds like "down-up-up down-up-up down-up-up
down-up-up". The D string notes are on the down-up-up's and the B string notes are
between the D string notes. I've marked the down beats with a "*".
