Dinosaur Jr. - The Wagon
From the album 'Green Mind' (1991)

Standard tuning

Tabbed by Peter Conneely

---

Couldn't believe there wasn't a full tab around already for this, so I've given it a
shot. It's one of Dino's biggest hits of the 90s, with a distinctly J Mascis
wild-yet-melodic solo, but all I could find was a horribly wrong tab and a pretty good 
one that was missing a few bits. Hopefully this should cover it all, apart from the lead 
parts before and after the solo - they're too hard to hear clearly enough to tab accurately. It makes 
more sense to do the rhythm parts there anyway, to have a build up before the real solo starts.

|2:52 - it's noise at this point, go nuts for the last second or two.
|       sounds like strumming fast whilst sliding down to the rhythm parts again, mostly
|       on the G and B strings. mix it up, this part's meant to sound wild. after you're
|       done, head back to the bridge rhythm.


==end (4:35) - there's one guitar doing feedback (pretty hard to tab) and the other's doing this:

website filled with other tabs usually stolen from UG. I don't mind people sharing knowledge, but
i'd at least like to be told what's being done with something i've spent days working on. Thanks!

"You won't see me..."
One of the greatest songs ever.
Amazing tab man, I appreciate the effort and I'm sure others do too. :)

Great job, except that during the second part of the verse riff, it's actually better to play an Am instead of a C, like so:

|-3--3--3-3-3-|--------------|
|-3--3--3-3-3-|-1p0-0-1p0-0--|
|-0--0--0-0-0-|-2---2-2---2--|
|-0--0--0-0-0-|-2-----2------|
|-2--3--2-2-2-|-0-----0------|
|-3--3--3-3-3-|--------------|
