                     Tame Impala - You Haven't Been Telling the Truth 

Technically this is by The Dee Dee Dums, which was Kevin Parker's blues project before 
it turned into Tame Impala, but I've put it here for simplicity. It's basically the same band. 
This song morphed into Half Full Glass of Wine later on. You can find this song on Youtube. 

Also, be sure to tune down two semitones to D standard, otherwise you won't be able to 
play along with the recording and you will be in the wrong key.
