Sonic Youth - Pink Steam tab

Song:      Pink Steam
Artist:    Sonic Youth
Album:     Rather Ripped
Tabbed by: Mark Wood (scopesAThotmail.co.uk)


Guitar I  - Thurston
Guitar II - Lee

Both guitars are tuned E Standard for this tab. However the guitars
are tuned to DD#A#D#GG on the album and when played live.

Most of Lee's (Guitar II) parts have distortion and lots of reverb and most of 
Thurston's (Guitar I) have mild distortion. I'm not 100% sure on who plays what 
parts but I've done my best to figure it out, it sounds pretty close but email
me or leave a comment if you have any suggestions or anything you think doesn't 
sound right. 

Edited some parts and the end solo because they didn't sound perfect ;D
