Soundgarden

 

 

Tuning: DADGBE

 

Intro: The bass plays something like a D pedal and the guitars play some

misc. feedback. Then a guitar plays this:

 

E||-----------------------||

B||------------------4b---||

G||o-------3h5p3p0-------o||

G||------------------------------------||

D||o----------------------------------o||

A||o----------------------------------o||

D||--0--0-0-6-6-0-0-0-6-6-6-5-6-6-6----||

 

Play this right before the first verse (guitar 2), on the 6th string and use

a lot of vibrato!

 

D|--------------------------------|

A|--------------------------------|

Chorus 1 riff:

E||------------------------||--------------------||

B||------11--11---11--11---||--11--11---11--11---||

Go back to the beginning riffs. When you come back to the Chorus 1 riff,

play it 2 times. Then play:

 

Chorus Riff 2:

Play 4 times

G||-----------------------------|-----------------------------||

D||-x-x-x-x-12-12-x-x-x-x-12-12-|-x-x-x-x-10-10-x-x-x-x-10-10-||

A||-x-x-x-x-12-12-x-x-x-x-12-12-|-x-x-x-x-10-10-x-x-x-x-10-10-||

D||-x-x-x-x-12-12-x-x-x-x-12-12-|-x-x-x-x-10-10-x-x-x-x-10-10-||

 

Interlude:

 

A||o-----------------------------------------||

D||o--0--0-0-12-12-12-12-10-10-10-10--10-12--||

 

A||-----------------------------------------||

D||--0--0-0-13-13-13-13-10-10-10-10--13-12--||

 

Play 5 times

G||-------------|--R--------------------||

D||--7----------|--R--6--3--6--5--5/6--o||

A||--7----------|--R--6--3--6--5--5/6--o||

D||--7----------|--R--6--3--6--5--5/6---||

 

For the "It wouldn't pain me more" (last bar of interlude) the riff keeps

the same rhythm, but the notes change:

 

A||-0--0-0-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3--3-5--|-0--0-0-6-6-6-6-3-3-3-3--6-5--|

D||------------------------------|------------------------------|

 

 

G||-------------|--R--------------------||

D||--3----------|--R--6--3--6--5--5/6--o||

A||--3----------|--R--6--3--6--5--5/6--o||

D||--3----------|--R--6--3--6--5--5/6---||

 

Then play the 2nd chorus part and end it on the intro riff.

 

Lyrics:

 

And you stare at me in your Jesus Christ pose

Arms held out like you've been carrying a load

And you swear to me you don't want to be my slave

But you're staring at me like I need to be saved

 

In your Jesus Christ pose

Arms held out

In your Jesus Christ pose

 

Thorns and shroud like it's the coming of the Lord

And I swear to you that I would never feed you pain

But you're staring at me like I'm driving the nails

 

In your Jesus Christ pose

And you stare at me

In your Jesus Christ pose

 

Arms held out like it's the coming of the Lord

And would it pay you more to walk on water

Than to wear a crown of thorns

It wouldn't pain me more to bury you rich

Than to bury you poor

In your Jesus Christ pose
