Artist: SOUNDGARDEN

Album: BADMOTORFINGER

--------------------

 

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, kfemil@telia.com

 

Standard tuning

 

Comments: The bass maimly mirrors the guitar riffs here with a

few slight variations. Most of this tune seems to shift between

straight and odd time but I'm not sure. Sometimes I have trouble

finding the "1". But that's Soundgarden for you. Play this with

a pick for that growling and biting sound. The bends are all

just shy of a half-step. I haven´t bothered writing out the

exact number of times that Rhy. Fig 2 is played during the

verse. Just play it a lot. You´ll feel when things head to the

next riff.

 

Key:

/ = slide up

\ = slide down

b = bend (whole step)

b^ = bend (1/2 step)

b^^ = bend (1 1/2 steps)

pb = pre-bend

r = release-bend

t = tap with righthand finger

h = hammer-on

p = pull-off

~ = Vibrato

* = Natural Harmonic

#(#) = Trill

x = Dead notes (no pitch)

P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)

Tp = Tap w\plectrum
