Minutemen - This Aint No Picnic tab

the minutemen
"this ain't no picnic"
as tabbed by primusfan

the minutemen are an awesome band because they don't use your typical chords. more fun 
tab than most punk songs. here it goes --


this is the introduction. you can play the first chord in the shape of the other 7#9's 
"purple haze" but i like the on i wrote down better as it's slightly easier to switch to 
(at least for a guitar newbie)

INTRO (slowly)

E7#9         B7   D7#9     A7    C7#9    G7              B7

E-3-3--------2--------------0------------1---------------2--|
B-3-3--------0----6-6-------2----4-4-----3---------------0--|
G-1-1--------2----5-5-------0----3-3-----0---------------2--|

SOLO -- i'm doing this kinda rushed, but here's the gist of the solo. i'm missing lots 
notes, but basically just solo in pentatonic for awhile. if you don't know what that is 
find out. :D

E-------7----------------------------8-8-8-8--8-8-8---10b-|

* might be played like this --

E-0-
B-3-
G-4-
D-2-
A---
E---

you can play the chords however you want though. i actually prefer to play
the Em7 as a barre chord at the 7th fret. anyways, cheers. i'll have the solo up soon.
