6th string is tuned down 2 steps

4th string is tuned up 1 step

If this sucks, keep in mind this is my fist tab! So forgive me if it's bad, especially 
this is a whacked-out tuning!

BTW, you will need to improv. on the 1st string at times, so here are notes to improv. on:
1st string-0-1-3-5-7-9-10-12-13-15-17-19-21-22-24

I know Sonic Youth is atonal and doesn't follow key; however, they might sometimes 
key only in some parts of a few of their songs.
