Dinosaur Jr - Start Choppin tab

START CHOPPIN'
DINOSAUR JR.

I've seen loads of tabs of this song. All of them are wrong or
incomplete. This one is pretty complete. I do not take credit 
for this tab (nor ths mistakes that it might contain). I found 
it several years ago at tabcrawler.com, but it has since been 
taken down and is nowhere else to be found. Credit goes to the 
original tabber, Keith Vonderhulls.
