Pearl Jam - Corduroy tab

I looked here and noticed there were no really good, easy to follow tabs of this song,
which is my favorite pearl jam song, so I decided to take the stuff I had learned from
other tabs plus my own interpretation and tab the damn thing myself. "Corduroy" pretty
much requires two guitars, at least for the bridge and outro, where there are multiple
riffs playing, but you can play your favorite of whichever riff is being played, which
is what I do.

intro

|-----4---4-----4---4-----4---4-----4---4-|
|-2-2---2---2-2---2-----2---2-----2---2---|
|---------------------0---------3---------|
|-----------------------------------------| x 4
there is one other way to play this, but it won't get you the sound of the open note
and the 3, which are the sounds produced in the song.

8th fret
