The Day I Tried to Live - SOUNDGARDEN
-------------------------------------
(off of the album Superunknown) 

The intro is played by two guitars, one slightly distorted, the other 
with a clean tone....the distorted guitar's riff is played a few more 
times in different parts of the song.  Just listen to it to get all 
the parts right:

guitar 1 (a little distortion):

e |--12----10--9-12\7--6---|-6--6/8-8/10----------------|    Repeat 
B |------------------------|----------------------------| this 6 times
G |------------------------|----------------------------|

guitar 2 (clear tone):

comes in on second measure the first cycle of the riff guitar one is playing

e |------------------------|-7\12--12--12/7--7--7\12----|    repeat 4
B |------------------------|----------------------------|     times
G |------------------------|----------------------------|

on fourth time play this for second guitar:

e |-12/7--7--7\12--12-13/7-|               e |--14/8-8\14-14\8-14/7-|
B |------------------------|    then this  B |----------------------|
G |------------------------|               G |----------------------|


then the bass and drums come in for their little intro and during that 
the distorted guitar plays something close to this slowly in rythym 
with the bass:

D -12-12-12-12-12---12-12/11-11/10--10-10-10-10-10---10/9-9/8--8-8-8-8-8


then comes the main riff, and oh how nice it is:

all strums are DOWN-

e |-7-7-7-7-7--7-7/6-6/5--5-5-5-5-5--5-5/4-4/3-3-3-|
B |-7-7-7-7-7--7-7/6-6/5--5-5-5-5-5--5-5/4-4/3-3-3-|
G |-8-8-8-8-8--8-8/7-7/6--6-6-6-6-6--6-6/5-5/4-4-4-|
D |-9-9-9-9-9--9-9/8-8/7--7-7-7-7-7--7-7/6-6/5-5-5-|
A |-9-9-9-9-9--9-9/8-8/7--7-7-7-7-7--7-7/6-6/5-5-5-|
E |-7-7-7-7-7--7-7/6-6/5--5-5-5-5-5--5-5/4-4/3-3-3-|


I'm not sure but I think that right before the main riff is played 
this chord is strummed once :

e 6
B 6
G 7
D 8
A 8
E 6

the main riff is repeated it I think 5 times and then goes back into 
the intro riff the distorted guitar played and then back into the main 
riff later and then....you get it.

oh, towards the end there's a little dink of a riff that sort of hangs 
there until the end - I forgot to figure that out but it shouldn't 
exactly be difficult.


that's about it.

disclaimer: I figured ths out on an acoustic guitar so keep that in 
mind while you fix the mistakes....

This is really wrong man. The song is played in EEBBBB or something similar. It's a really odd tuning but it allows for the open chord strums on top of the notes that make up the melody which are used a lot in this song.
