There are a lot of tabs for this song but many are incorrect.  The track time at each
is listed at each section heading.

Composer:   Greg Ginn and Henry Rollins
Album:      In My Head (1984)
Tabbed by:  MattBuchh@gmail.com

Intro (0:00)
Played four times:

--------------------|
--------------------|
-----------3--------|
---------4-3--------|
-----4-5------------|
---3----------------|

Chorus (0:05)
Played eight times:

--------------------|
--------------------|
------------4--3----|
------------4--3----|
------4--5----------|
---3----------------|

Verse (0:15)
Played once:

   G       F    C
-----------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------4--3-----------4--3----|
----------------555-----------4--3-----------4--3----|
---5333333-3333-333-----4--5-----------4--5----------|
---3333333-1111------3--------------3----------------|

  Ab       C     D   *
---------------------3-3---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------3-3---------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------5-3---3-----------3--3h0-2h0--3h0-2h0--3h0-2h0----|
--33333333-55555-7-----------5---5-3---3-5-----------3--------3--------3---|
--11111111-33333-5-------------------5-------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

*Ginn plays a pentatonic riff in G here and Dez Cadena keeps playing rithym riff from
chorus; I usually improvise Ginn's part when I play -and he likely does too- it but I've
it pretty close to what it is on the CD.  The last part with the pull-offs is also 
and it is done a few times more than what I've written.

Prechorus (0:28)
Played three times:

-------------------------------|
-------------------------------|
-----------2-1-----------------|
--2--2-2-2-----2-1-0-----------|
---------------------4--4-4----|
-------------------------------|

(0:36)
The fourth time is a variation of the other three (played three times):

----------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------|
-----------2-1--------2-1-------2-1-----------------|
--2--2-2-2-----2-1--------1-0-------0-4--4-4-4------|
----------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------|

The last four notes from the above section are not played on the third time and the song
directly into the chorus again.  Then comes another verse with a differing lead riff:

Verse (0:15)
Played once:

   G       F    C
-----------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------4--3-----------4--3----|
----------------555-----------4--3-----------4--3----|
---5333333-3333-333-----4--5-----------4--5----------|
---3333333-1111------3--------------3----------------|

  Ab       C     D   **
-----------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------|
----------------------5b(1)---5p3h5p3h5p3------------|
--33333333-55555-7-----------------------------------|
--11111111-33333-5-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------|

Ginn starts with some of those bizarre sounds -his trademark- before going into the full
I've tabbed there.  That's essentially the whole song other than the solo, which I will
in a separate file.  Email me with any questions.

With the solo part those notes you tabbed aren't in the G major Pentatonic Scale. only g,a,b,d,and e are in that scale.

It's in G minor, so that works for that key not G major.
