A|--9-9--9-9--9-9--9-9--l --9-9--9-9--9----------0-10
E|--7-7--7-7--7-7--7-7--l --7-7--7-7--7- 8-7-8-7-0-8

The two B chords (799) that are mareked with a (#) can also be two muted strums, which sounds better.

WHITE LIMO CHORUS:

e|---------------------------------
B|-------------------------------|
g|----------7-7-77--------------|
D|--9-9-99-7-7-77-8-8-88-5-5-55l
A|--9-9-99-5-5-55-8-8-88-5-5-55l
E|--7-7-77---------6-6-66-3-3-33l

Then the next section uses the exact same chords but adds a little lead part

e|---------------------------------
B|-------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------|
D|--9-9-10-9-12-12-13-12-8-8-9-8-5-5-6-5l
A|--9-9------12-12--------8-8-----5-5-----l
E|--7-7------10-10--------6-6-----3-3-----l

On second run through of this riff you only play one G powerchord at the end and go back to the
Dl--------0-10
Al--------0-10
El8-7-8-7-0-8

and then continue playing the main riff.


The tab kind of skewed itself off centre to each line but you should be able to pick it up just be listening to it and playing the chords

Just a basic tab, mainly because i suck at writing tab but thought I'd share what i stumbled across
Why not drop-D that and make it way easier on yourself?

It might be the bad quality audio but can anybody hear whispers at the beginning? @ about 0.07 seconds in and 0.09-0.10 of the clip without the video

Keep in mind that if this was indeed taped on an old VHS camcorder (well the parts that look like it anyways) that is a normal thing if it was taped over something else. I used to have old movies that did that. Seems like the old material never fully goes away.

Now if it wasn't taped in that manner, then you might be on to something.

Yeah we'll have to wait until the album comes out to listen for sure. I was talking about the other video on the foofighters youtube channel which shows the FF logo and plays the song, not the white limo badass video.

Listening to it again it's probably just a finger sliding up a guitar string. "Whispers" is probably the wrong word to describe it. It just sounds a bit out of place.

...or it could have something to do with the Mayan calendar. Remember, the date on the camcorder in the White Limo was 2012. I think I'm on to something here...

Hey everyone, I decided to cover this song on youtube so you can at least learn it from there.

Just type "white limo kiko1539" in the search bar.

I hope it's useful.

something I've never got with covers on youtube, why do you leave the original track playing over the top? I can hardly make out which is you and which is the original song. Why don't you just upload the guitar track on it's own?

They can be helpful for n00bs like me to learn how to play songs.

I was hoping he'd play Dave's part though.
