Pixies - Where Is My Mind tab

I was sick of seeing so many popular tabs on this that I don't agree with--
they left out the open string that makes the main riff so powerful!
A song this good deserves much better!


Where Is My Mind?
Pixies

Tabbed by Bound

Tuning - E Standard (EBGDAe)
Meant for electric guitar with medium-heavy distortion.
