Dinosaur Jr - Wagon tab

Dinosaur Jr. - The Wagon
From the album 'Green Mind' (1991)

Standard tuning

---

Couldn't believe there wasn't a full tab around already for this, so I've given it 
a shot. It's one
of Dino's biggest hits of the 90s, with a distinctly J Mascis wild-yet-melodic 
solo, but all I could
find was a horribly wrong tab and a pretty good one that was missing a few bits. Hopefully this
should cover it all, apart from the lead parts before and after the solo - they're too hard to
hear clearly enough to tab accurately. It makes more sense to do the rhythm parts there anyway, to
have a build up before the real solo starts.

if you don't want to have to keep moving up the neck for that end bit, try this instead:

|2:52 - it's noise at this point, go nuts for the last second or two.
|       sounds like strumming fast whilst sliding down to the rhythm parts again, mostly
|       on the G and B strings. mix it up, this part's meant to sound wild. after you're
|       done, head back to the bridge rhythm.


==end (4:35) - there's one guitar doing feedback (pretty hard to tab) and the other's doing this:

Originally uploaded by 'pete-c' to Ultimate-Guitar.com. If you see this elsewhere, some tool has
probably took this and tried to take all the credit by putting it on some random third-rate tabs
website filled with other tabs usually stolen from UG. I don't mind people sharing knowledge, but
i'd at least like to be told what's being done with something i've spent days working on. Thanks!
