			     Sugar Kane - Sonic Youth
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Rachel
Email: rvandeve@mscd.edu

Tuning: Standard

*Note* I tabbed this for a friend I work with 
because she couldn't find a tab that was decent. 
I do not listen to Sonic Youth at all, so I don't
know if their album version is different from the 
music video. Point is, I used the recording from their
music video that is posted on youtube, and that's where 
the times I have used come from.

it into two endings, the first section repeats right
back into the beginning of this section.

*Note* The next part of the solo is nearly impossible 
to write out. Both guitars are generating lots of feedback 
and doing various obnoxious noise making techniques such as 
pick slides and crap.

The song ends with a note in the bass, so both 
guitars kind of stop abruptly. E-mail me with 
questions or comments if you feel it's necessary.
