Pumped Up Kicks was one of my first ever post from 2011. In addition to creating new content, I'm redoing my old material (if still relevant). I always thought his arrangement was cool, and found an even easier way to play it.

This song is suitable for intermediate guitar players and up. While the chord shapes are very easy to play, the finger-picking rhythm element might be tough for beginner guitarists.

The guitar tab is beautifully written across one page. In accordance with the tab, my order of play looks like this: Intro 2x, Verse 2x, Chorus 2x -- Verse 2x, Chorus 4x, Intro.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:
