Tuning: F#F#GGAA

This tab may sound shit when you play it yourself but add bass,
another guitar, drums and vocals and it will sound perfect.


INTRO: The intro is just a heap of string noise (mutes, rakes
and pick slides). I got the right sound by sliding the pick up
and down the strings furiously...rest your fret hand on top of
the strings to prevent the strings from ringing.

VERSE AFTER CHORUS Guitar 1 I think just plays some rythmn, try 1st fret on the F#s or maybe just open f#s.
Guitar 2A -----------------------------------------------------------|A -----------------------------------------------------------|G ---20--17--19----17--19b-----------------------------------|G -----------------------------------------------------------|F#-----------------------------------------------------------|F#-----------------------------------------------------------|
After this I think there is some sort of slide stuff followed by 2 monster pick slides before the music is the same as the first verse. ------------------------------------------------ THE SONIC YOUTH GUITAR/BASS TABLATURE ARCHIVE: http://www.islandnet.com/~mustang/tab/index.html
