Pixies - Ed Is Dead tab

Artist: Pixies
Song: Ed Is Dead
Album: Come On Pilgrim
The Tab Is Split Into Two Parts What Black Francis Plays (rhythm guitar) And What Joey 
Plays (lead guitar ). The Black Francis Section Is Probably The Wrong Strumming Pattern 
Its Near Enough Listen To The Song If You Dont Think My Strumming Pattern Is Right.
