Yo La Tengo – Big Day Coming tab

Artist: Yo La Tengo
Album: Painful (release date: October 5, 1993)
Song: Big Day Coming

[Note: This is a tab for the quiet, soft version of the song (i.e. Track 1 off of Painful)]

The slow, majestic starter of Painful, one of the calmest and softest songs YLT has ever 
written, and definitely a favorite of mine.

Here is the riff played constantly throughout the whole song:

|e-------------------||B-----1---2-1-------||G---1---1-------1---||D-------------------||A-------------------||E-------------------|
Here is another one-note riff that is played for a large part of the song by another guitar:
|e-------------------||B-------------------||G------1------1-1---||D-------------------||A-------------------||E-------------------|
The third riff, which is played four times between the second and third verses:
|e-------------------||B-------------------||G-------------------||D---3-3-1-----------||A-------------------||E-------------------|
And, finally, here is the "solo" which the second guitar has after the last verse:
|e-------------------------------------------||B-----------------------------------1-1-1---||G---1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1---||D-------------------------------------------||A-------------------------------------------||E-------------------------------------------|
The rest is essentially all guitar feedback that Ira plays, but I have no idea how to tab it. Let's be undecided, let's take our time And sooner or later we will know our mind We'll be on the outside, we won't care Because we're together, that's somewhere And there's a big day coming, 'bout a mile away There's a big day coming, I can hardly wait Let's wake up the neighbors, let's turn up our amps, The way that we used to, without a plan We can play a Stones song, sitting on a fence, And it'll sound pretty good, till I forget how it ends And there's a big day coming, 'bout a mile away There's a big day coming, I can hardly wait I woke up early, couldn't go back to sleep, 'Cause I'd been thinking of where it all would lead So I made you wake up, said, "Let's take a walk, I wanna hold your hand, we don't have to talk" There's a big day coming, 'bout a mile away There's a big day coming, I can hardly wait I can hardly wait I can hardly wait.
