            Modest Mouse - Wrong Decision

Tabbed by: Nick Verveniotis

This song has never been officially released on any album, EP, single, etc.,
to my knowledge, and I pride myself upon being an expert of all things Modest Mouse.
It was apparently layed down during a recording session at Calvin Johnson's
Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, WA. in 1993, and is probably an outtake from
one of the band's first studio albums, Sad Sappy Sucker. Find it on the interweb.

There are two guitars and some kind of organ. I've written part of the song so that
the neat little organ sound can be replicated with the rhythm guitar.

Tuning: Half-Step Down (eb, Bb, Gb, Db, Ab, Eb)
(note: they've got their guitar's tuned to something slightly higher than Half a
Step Down, but lower than the middle point between Half a Step Down and Standard Tuning)

Here is what you can do with guitar #2 to get that cool little organ sound during
the choruses:

Strummed extremly fast.
