START CHOPPIN'
DINOSAUR JR.

I've seen loads of tabs of this song. All of them are wrong or
incomplete. This one is pretty complete. I do not take credit 
for this tab (nor ths mistakes that it might contain). I found 
it several years ago at tabcrawler.com, but it has since been 
taken down and is nowhere else to be found. Credit goes to the 
original tabber, Keith Vonderhulls.

Er, thanks for the comment...I guess... But you gave this tab three stars solely because you consider PART of the solo wrong. That rating is quite unfair (and misleading). What about the rest of the tab or the other solo. BTW, I did have a look at your solo and it's basically the same notes but in different fret positions. I've played the solo with the recorded version and, for the most part, it's correct, save for a couple of more hammer-ons and pull-offs (which shouldn't really be an issue, considering tabs are meant to be an approximation and not the exact music score).

Perhaps you could be more constructive with your criticism and submit a more accurate version if you think this tab so wrong.

What the hell UG? This is the second time you've not given me credit for one of my tabs. This tab was submitted by me (and yes, I was logged in at the time).

I was trying to help by showing you a better approximation because when I play along to the track with your version it sounds wrong at quite a few places (and its harder to play)
Also there are a few other things that dont sound 100% right in the rest of the song. So it deserves 3 stars in my eyes.
