Dinosaur Jr - Almost Ready tab version 1

Dinosaur Jr. - Almost Ready
Tabbed by Kerwin Mendoza

alright, first of, this is my version of the song, the WAY I PLAY IT. it's not 100% 
since i only bothered to figure out the melody and added my own things in between. i'll just 
the chords for rhythm.

VERSE: Open G, Open G, Open D, Open C CHORUS: I think J plays either power chords or even just the root notes based on live performances. G5, G5, D5, C5 BRIDGE: There's some notes played during Em (it's not hard too hard to figure out) and i bend the A on the 3rd string instead of playing a G the first time around. Em, Em, C, G Em, Em, C, D D4 D GUITAR SSOOLLLOOO!! Note that this isn't TOTALLY correct, but this is how i play it. I usually play the main of the solo and then play around with the Em pentatonic or the G major scale.

a good old pentatonic run. i stole this from good times, bad times by zeppelin but it's pretty general lick i think. these are more or less triplets.-------------------------------------------------15b17-15------------------|----------------------------------12--12h15p12-----------------------------|-------------------12--12h14h12-14--14-------------------------------------|-------12h14p12--14--14----------------------------------------------------|-14-14---------------------------------------------------------------------|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
OR YOU CAN END IT LIKE THIS (if you are so inclined to jam as many notes as possible in four bars) i usually start playing this around two beats BEFORE the last four bars of the solo so i fit it all in.

and that's it, remember to use crazy vibrato on your bends or just all the time. i use to compensate for my lack of a big muff or all those other effects. HAVE FUN. comment if you like, i'd be interested to hear them.
