I cannot for the life of me figure out how to play the riff in Tame Impala's "Elephant" in time. It's the very first opening riff that can be heard before he starts singing. The D chord bluesy rhythm is fine..but I can never hit the two F chords in time. It sounds like it's falling in between the 4 and the 1 beat or something. Please help! Thanks! :-)

It's in 12/8. The first F is on beat 11 and the second is on beat 1 of the next bar

D   D D   D D   D D  F     F   D D  etc.


It kinda turns the shuffle feel upside down!
Great song with a cool ear-catching rhythm!
