ROCK MUSIC -  THE PIXIES

     Thanks to everybody who gave me the correct lyrics.  Here is the my
most recent transcription to the noisiest song the Pixies ever owned.
    Anyway, they only use power chords in this song and here they are.

        (X = deaden)
       F5    C5-1   C5-2     C#5     G#5   A#5-1   A#5-2   E5    G5   D#5
e      X       X      X       X       X      X       X      X    X     X
B      X       X      X       X       X      X       X      X    X     X
G      5       X      X       X       X      X       X      4    7     X
D      3       5      X       6       X      X       3      2    5     8
A      X       3      10      4       6      8       1      X    X     6
E      X       X      8       X       4      6       X      X    X     X

        When I play this song I turn up my distortion and Reverb as high as
they can go and I get pretty close to the right sound.  I realize that some
people don't like power chords or are playing accoustic, so if you play the
Major barre chord in place of the power chord, it still sounds alright.  It
is just really hard to slide from one chord to another and get the stepping
down effect from the chords. Enough talking, here's the song:
        / = Slide.
        ~ = speed picking.
