J Mascis and The Fog - Set Us Free
From the album 'Free So Free' (2002)

Standard tuning, capo on 9th fret

This tab is based on what I could see from a video of it being played live/some fancy
sound-slowing software/oldschool listening for notes, so it's got to be fairly accurate.

Due to the way the guitar parts seem to have been recorded with like 2-3 overdubs and/or
certain effects, i've changed the tab so it's more like how it's played live (with one
guitar). That way the switches between the rhythm and the lead parts/small fills won't
seem so painfully obvious when you're playing along.

Warning: badass riffs ahead in verse/bridge.

|2:52 - there's a part here that goes below the capo (the solo was recorded without one), so
|       i'll put that part in [brackets] and tab it an octave up above it so the same notes are
|       playable with the capo.

if you're playing the song yourself though, i recommend ending it like this, combining both the
rhythm and lead parts: (relative to capo)
