        Hello! I found this song tabbed by Gary Coulbourne at Nevada, but I 
thought that this might be easier to play because the finger positions 
are all power chords with some index finger lifting. 
        I haven't practiced Gary Coulbourne's tab of Mother enough to be able 
to play it up to speed and see how it sounds, so I just tabbed it myself.
        This is my first tab, so tell me what you think! And let me know
if there are any gross errors. All input welcome.

yeah, all seems pretty good, I would've just said for most of the song however, B, A, G power chords.
the solo is based around B pentatonic from what I can tell if that helps anyone at all but it's too fast to work out note for note unless u have loads of time on your hands
