In Our Prime Tabs – Black Keys

 Hi, so I couldn't find a good tab of this anywhere, which is surprising since its SUCH a good song.
Any ways, I'm only really not 100% on a couple of the chords, but everything else should be fine hopefully.

I also apologize for not being able to incorporate the timings as well as I could have!

Intro - Lead guitar  (while the piano is playing)

e:----------------------------------------6~--------------------------------6~---|
B:--7/9--7-------------9-----------11-----7~--------9----9-----------11-----7~---|
G:---------8--6------8---8------10----10--8~--------8-8----8------10----10--8~---|
D:---------------8/9-------9/11-----------8~--------9--------9/11-----------8~---|
A:-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E:-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

First section of the song

The acoustic guitar plays the chords B major, C# major, and D# minor as below:

B                 C#          D#m

"Pour me down the drain, I disappear"

etc

and the lead guitar plays fills and picks the chords above, as follows (included the times if it helps):

Fill 1 (0:34)                                         Fill 2 (0:41)

e:--6h9p6--------------------|-------------------6--|-6-9-6----------|
B:--------7h9p7-----7--------|-------------11----7--|-------9-7--9-7-|
G:--------------6h8---8p6----|----------10-------8--|----------------|
D:------------------------9~-|---9/11------------8--|----------------|
A:---------------------------|----------------------|----------------|
E:---------------------------|----------------------|----------------|

Then for the rest of the first part of the song, the lead guitar will pick slightly varying patterns of 

e:-------------------------6~-|
B:------9-----------11-----7~-|
G:----8---8------10----10--8~-|
D:--9-------9/11-----------8~-|
A:----------------------------|
E:----------------------------|

While playing licks after the D# minor chord is played

Fill 3 (0:49)                  Fill 4 (0:54)             Fill 5 (1:03)       Fill 6 (1:08)

e:--6h9p6--------------------|------6--6--6-------------|-------------------|--6-----|
B:--------7h9p7-----7--------|----7----------7p6---6----|------7~--7h9p7----|----7---|
G:--------------6h8---8p6----|--8----------------8---8--|-----------------8-|------8-|
D:------------------------9~-|--------------------------|--6h8--------------|--------|
A:---------------------------|--------------------------|-------------------|--------|
E:---------------------------|--------------------------|-------------------|--------|


Second Part

Here I wasn't actually able to hear the lead guitar very well, but from what I did hear, it basically
sounded like the guitarist was just picking the chords that the acoustic guitar was playing, but in 
different patterns and variations. Either way, I apologize again.

A# minor is strummed for 2 bars i think, and then 

A#m                         G#m                              D#m 

"Every now and then, I see a face from way back when, and I explode"

A#m                             G#m                            F#                    A# / A#7

"Friends no longer aid me, only bullshit serenade me like it's gold, how that we're told" 

This part of the song transitions to the next with a strum of the D# minor chord.



Third Part

Again I apologize I couldn't hear the lead guitar too well, and so I didn't manage to tab it out

B major, C# major, and D# minor are played three times through, and then G# minor, A# minor, A# major and 
A# major 7 is played once through, then

B                 C#            D#m

"Like every lover hovers in my mind" 

etc; then

    G#m             A#m              A#m      /  A#7

"We had it all when we were in our prime"


Outro Solo (everything should be fine except for the note marked with *, not entirely sure if thats correct)
