                                "Out There"
                                Dinosaur Jr.

                                Recorded on
                              "Where You Been"


This is a (fairly close) transcription of Dinosaur Jr.'s
"Out There." The verse riff and the first solo were posted
earlier by . I've incorporated his
transcription into mine, and added the other sections and
the second solo. All the rhythm is TABbed out first, then
the lead at the end.

Have fun!
                                        -Michael Gunter-
                                        

P.S. Soon to come: The rest of the "Where You Been" Album.
                   All of Live's "Mental Jewelry" album (guitar and bass).

Note that this is all by ear, so it is at most a reasonable facsimile.
Please pardon the verbosity of my transcriptions; I'm a real perfectionist
when it comes to these things.

The rest of the lead is just a flurry of notes that I'm a combination of too lazy and too not good enough to figure out. The chorus section is just in D# so just solo with the D# MAJOR and D# MAJOR PENTATONIC scales and you'll be fine. .-=Michael Gunter=-.
