Pixies - Tonys Theme tab

I'll do this song as my first tab since I actually watched the DVD and went to two of 
year's concerts....I had good seats.

Tony's Theme

Rythym Guitar is in chords and is clean, lead guitar is in tablature and uses distortion.

Be very fast and accurate in this part. I watched Joey do this.

Some glasses on the back of the road
He was even dressed like a toad
That's what class is
