Here's the first bit of chorus from Soundgarden's Black Hole Sun. I
played it with my chorus cranked all the way to the right for short
bandwith to give it that 70s' oscillatory effect, with lots of distortion and flange/echo.

It's from memory so be forgiving...

IMPORTANT: You MUST use dropped-D tuning (tune your low E string down to D)

After the first chorus, I believe the barre chords in subsequent choruses
are C-A#-D (instead of C-D shown above).
