                 You Know My Name - Chris Cornell
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Karleen Heong
Email: the_aurora_australis@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

This arrangement is not exactly as the recording,its changed a little. I tabbed it
for two guitars, including the more prominent synth/brass parts,but I haven't included
You may find some of the guitar 1 parts overlap, but I didn't cut them out so you can 
it with three guitars too.

I tried my best to imitate the special effect sounds using harmonics etc, but with a
pedal you may find a better sound. Anyway, here's the tab. I'll walk you through the
bits.

Key:
| .  palm mute(PM)
| b  bend
| r  release bend
| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| ~  vibrato
| *  pinch harmonic
| <> natural harmonic

Intro:

Pre-chorus 1 - Guitar 1 - clean
             - Guitar 2 - Overdrive


[1] Play natural harmonic with distortion
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|-5*-7*--(4)r3--(3)r2--r7-r5-r4--(4)r3--(3)r2------------------222222222--|

Note: Try the pinch harmonics nearer the bridge,it's hard to get the same
      sound heard in the song. Next is a lot of pre-bended notes. Bend the
      string first, play the note and release the bend. Numbers in brackets
      tell you what note to bend to. Numbers after 'r' are the frets where  your fingers
be. Bends like 'r7' without brackets mean just pre-bend a little, like 1/4 of a tone.

Chorus 1
Guitar 1 - Synth/brass effect (distn is ok)

A|-------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------|
  'save.....you...........fulfil...you....................die.'

Guitar 2 - Overdrive/light distn
(Here are the chord changes. Any rhythm here will sound good, you
 may use the example if you can't improvise)
