This song was originally recorded during the Badmotorfinger sessions.
The sound is raw & Chris's vocals are wailing just like several of their
early hits. Please rate or comment.

great tab but, i think this should be changed.

change this:
A|--------------------8b9r--6~---|
D|-0---0-2h3-2p0-0-0-------------|

to this:
A|--------------------8b9r--7~---|
D|-0---0-2h3-2p0-0-0-------------|
other than that it's a great tab. thanks for posting it.
