The Day I Tried To Live - from Soundgarden "Superunknown"
Transcribed by Aaron G: aaronlg@hotmail.com

I wrote this out because while the version currently on Olga(by Jeeves)
is okay, it doesn't use the alternate tuning, which sounds way better
and is necessary to produce Soundgarden's trademark sound (acheived
by several strings playing the exact same note simultaneously). I used
the old tab as a guideline, as well as the recording itself. The tuning
was inspired by the tab for "My Wave"(Anthony Fitzpatrick).

E -> B(down)
B -> B(same)
G -> B(down)
D -> B(down)
A -> E(down)
E -> E(same)

Intro: this is the biggest difference. not only are the doubled notes 
important,
but also the low open strings, which create those nice pedal tones you hear 
in
the recording, but can't do in standard tuning.

B|-15---14---12-15-14-9---9-9/12-12-0-|
B|-15---14---12-15-14-9---9-9/12-12-0-|
B|-15---14---12-15-14-9---9-9/12-12-0-|
B|-0----0----0--0--0--9---9-9/12-12-0-|
E|--------------------0---0-0----0--0-|
E|------------------------------------|

the slide guitar:

B|-15\9--9-11-11\9--|

B|-20\15--20\15-20\15-20\12--|

Verse:

Chorus:

E|-9-9-9-9-9---9-8p0-7p0-6p0-5-5-5-5-5---4-3p0-2-2-2-2-2-2-|

Interlude: there's a long pause, and then you do the intro at double pace

that's it.
