Soundgarden - Superunknown

Superunknown

Dropped D, dropped G tuning. Play this tab in full order, just follow it

through. Most of this was transcribed by ear but a few notes were fixed up by

looking at the Guitar magazine version. I hope it is easy to follow. Once you

get it down pat you will appreciate how much fun it is to play. Now and then

when jamming I substitute the fill in here and there to spice it up a little.

Don't overdo it though!
