Dinosaur Jr - Out There tab

Ive been wanting to learn this song for a while, but the other tab on this site is
pretty hard to understand and a little inaccurate. I think my version will be a little easier
to understand, and more correct, although Im not trying to claim its 100% right. Learned 
it with help from the youtube vid of J Mascis teaching the intro, and watching live
versions of the song.

Capo 3rd Fret. Notes and chords are relative to the capo. so 0=3 and Em is actually Gm.

REMEMBER CAPO 3rd FRET

Into/verse riff

e|-----3---2-0---0------2-0-----------------0-----------------|
b|-----0---0-0-0-0----------3---3-------3---3--x-x-3-3--------|
g|-------------0-----4--------4----------------x-x-0-0---2----|
d|-2-2-------------4-----------------2---------x-x-2-2---0----|
a|-2-----2-------------------------3------3----x-x-3-3---3----|
E|-0----------------------------------------------------------|

If I have time to figure out the solo Ill post it. But all you need to know to improv is
he solos in Gm.

So play intro once and improv a Gm solo. Real Gm, not relative to capo.

Then back to intro verse.

e|--------3---2-0---0------2-0-----------------0-----------------|
b|--------0---0-0-0-0----------3---3-------3---3--x-x-3-3--------|
g|----------------0-----4--------4----------------x-x-0-0---2----|
d|----2-2-------------4-----------------2---------x-x-2-2---0----|
a|----2-----2-------------------------3------3----x-x-3-3---3----|
E|3b--0----------------------------------------------------------|

I know your name
I know the people out there feel the same
I know you're gone
I hope you got some friends to come along.

Chorus 4x(Ill post two different ways to play it, i prefer the first one)

I know you're out there
I know that space is not a race, weren't you invited?
Its what you can't spare
Whatevers left, hide the rest
And bring it right in
Maintained inside
Ive lost my range, feeling strange
Weren't you invited?
Just never try
It's still the place
You're still the case
Now bring it right in
