Elephant Tabs by Tame Impala V4

                            Tame Impala - Elephant
                       from their 2012 album Lonerism

The main riff actually uses a low D note on the low E string. You have to tune down from
E to D to do that, but I'm tabbing this song in standard for simplicity. If you want to
be exact, then change your tuning to drop D and use the open string. That's how Kevin
plays it, but it isn't 100% essential, especially if you can't be bothered retuning.
You could also just turn it into a D power chord as well to compensate.
