			     STONES - Sonic Youth

Tabbed by: SonicYouthRules (that's my nick!)
Email: chapman_li@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Great, great song. I know they probably (read 'definitely') do not play this 
in Standard tuning but this is perfectly playable in Standard and I think
this is is a good tab of it. If you like, plz give me a rating as this took
me quite a long time to figure out!

Timings are approx - as always, listen to the record
