Soundgarden - Spoonman tab

    ________________
   / Soundgarden   /  The inspiration for this song came from the weird musician called
  / Spoonman      /  Artis the Spoonman, which Cornell met once. He literally played with
 / Superunknown  /  spoons on strings. The background ticking in the Interlude is actually
/_______________/  spoons! But I really don't what this song is about deeper than that.


Tuning: Drop D (D A D G B E)
Gtr I - Distorted (lead, left speaker)
Gtr II - Distorted (lead, right speaker)
Gtr III - Lightly Overdriven (pre-solo)
Gtr IV - Distorted (solo)

  Feel the rhythm with your hands
  Steal the rhythm while you can

  Speak the rhythm on your own
  Speak the rhythm all alone

  Spoonman
  Come together with your hands - save me
  I'm together with your plan - save me

  All my friends are indians
  All my friends are brown and red
  Spoonman

  All my friends are skeletons
  They beat the rhythm with their bones
  Spoonman

  Come on, come on, come on

  Come on, come on, come on
  Come on, we like it all
