	    'Tractor Rape Chain' by Guided by Voices
                 from the album 'Bee Thousand'

  standard tuning (EBGDAE top to bottom)

  NOTE: I haven't tabbed the acoustic intro; if you want to
  experiment, tune your guitar slightly flat from standard
  tuning and use variations of the verse chords.

  Also, I haven't included exact number of keystrokes in verse
  progression; I tabbed it to show different voicings I use for
  same named chords in the verse. If you have other voicings you
  prefer to use for these chords, be my guest (gee, thanks dude).

                   verse progression
