The Hindu Times Tab
"The Hindu Times" by Oasis, from the album "Heathen Chemistry" (2002).
Tabbed by Medalion ([email protected]) Printed March 04, 2002.

Standard EADGBe tuning, no capo.

This is a GREAT new song by Oasis in awhile. It's "high" energy cocky Oasis rock n' roll of the old days!!!  The
song is a return to their rock n' roll roots.  The song gets a bit repetitive but never loses it's edge and the hook riff 
is pretty catchy.  The riff is a rock n' roll take on a hindu like riff.  There are subtle variations to this riff as you
will see from my tab... I had to be THOROUGH!!!  There are also alternatives to the riffs, whichever is easier for you to
play.

This is a very easy song to play, utilizing two guitars.  The lyrics were printed from hearing the song
over and over, as it is difficult to understand some of Liam's pronounciations as his voice is getting shot over the
years.  What can we say?  Cigarettes & Alcohol is the culprit! And I don't mean by singing the Oasis song...

I have been playing guitar for 1 year and 1 month approximately now.  This tab is already 100% correct, so there is 
probably no need for other "versions" I'm pretty confident.  I am a BIG Oasis fan, and as I write this tab, the album
"Heathen Chemistry" isn't out for another 3 months!  But you can play the new single yourself now.  Check it out! ;)

About the artist behind The Hindu Times Tab:

Oasis are an English rock band that formed in Manchester in 1991. The group was formed by Liam Gallagher (lead vocals), Paul Arthurs (guitar), Paul McGuigan (bass) and Tony McCarroll (drums), who were soon joined by Liam's older brother Noel Gallagher (lead guitar, vocals). Oasis have sold more than 50 million albums worldwide,[1] and have had eight UK number one singles. The Gallagher brothers are the band's leading songwriters and the only continual members. The present lineup is completed by rhythm/lead guitarist and songwriter Gem Archer, guitarist and songwriter Andy Bell and unofficial drummer Zak Starkey.

The band initially gained prominence performing on the Manchester club circuit. They were signed to independent record label Creation Records and afterwards released their debut album Definitely Maybe in 1994. The following year, the band recorded (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995) with their new drummer Alan White, whilst rivalling with Britpop peers Blur in the charts. The Gallagher brothers were featured regularly in tabloid newspapers for their sibling rivalry and wild lifestyles, cultivating reputations both as bad boys and as a band of the people. At the height of their fame, Oasis' third album, Be Here Now (1997), became the fastest-selling album in UK chart history, but lost much of its long-term appeal after the initial hype and positive reception tempered.

While recording their fourth album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (2000) in 1999, Oasis lost two founding members and suffered a notable decline in popularity in America. The band added replacements Gem Archer and Andy Bell for Heathen Chemistry (2002). Their sixth album Don't Believe the Truth (2005) with Zak Starkey, despite turbulent recording, became their best-selling and best-received album in a decade. The following year, the band released a compilation album entitled Stop the Clocks. In February 2007, Oasis received the BRIT Award for outstanding contribution to music.

The seventh studio album by the band is reported to be complete and, although an official release date has not been confirmed, both Liam and Noel Gallagher have been quoted as saying that the album is due out in September 2008. [2] [3]
