An Island
Tuning: CGCGCD from low to high (C Modal).
Capo: 3rd fret.

Note that when Mike Kinsella plays the song live, he tunes his guitar to C#G#C#G#C#D#
and places the capo on the 2nd fret. However, I recommend tuning a half-step down to
CGCGCD and placing the capo on the 3rd fret to avoid having to tune the 3rd string up
a half-step and the 2nd up a whole step.

I have tried to make the tab consistent with the timing of the song. The song is played
in 4/4. A space of two dashes (--) between notes indicates an eighth note. I left two
dashes at beginning and end of each bar to make the tab easier to read. You'll have to
listen to the song to get the timing exact, however.

Fret numbers are relative to the capo.
