@Song: Number One Hit Song
Written by D. Boon
Recorded by Minutemen on album "Double Nickles on the Dime" (SST)
File format: tab
Transcription: Gary Von Colln

This song is based on a two chord progression: A7 - D/D9.  During the
singing, D. Boon plays some individual notes from the A7 and D9
chords.

The solo (not tabbed here) uses A pentatonic minor, I think.
