Sonic Youth - Sugar Kane tab

Sonic Youth-Sugar Kane

this is by far the best song on Sonic youth's 'Dirty' album and one of my favourite
songs. i've done my best to try and tab it out in standard even if to be properly
played it requires an altered tuning. I've tried tabbing out what can be heard most
obviously in the mix, although there may be inaccuracies. Anyway onto the tab.
