I looked here and noticed there were no really good, easy to follow tabs of this song,
which is my favorite pearl jam song, so I decided to take the stuff I had learned from
other tabs plus my own interpretation and tab the damn thing myself. "Corduroy" pretty
much requires two guitars, at least for the bridge and outro, where there are multiple
riffs playing, but you can play your favorite of whichever riff is being played, which
is what I do.

intro
|-----------------------------------------|

|-----4---4-----4---4-----4---4-----4---4-|
|-2-2---2---2-2---2-----2---2-----2---2---|
|---------------------0---------3---------|
|-----------------------------------------| x 4
there is one other way to play this, but it won't get you the sound of the open note
and the 3, which are the sounds produced in the song.


verse riff
|---------------3-|
|---------------3-|
|---------------0-|
|-10-10-10-10-9-0-|
|-10-10-10-10-9-2-|
|-8--8--8--8--7-3-| strum the last chord several times and then slide back up to the
8th fret


interlude - guitar 1 plays this

|-0-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-0-|
|-3-3-3-3-2-2-0-0-2-|
|-----------------3-| like the verse riff, strum the last chord a couple times
then you can add on the part at the end of the riff that goes:
|-0------|
|---3----|
|------0-|
|--------|
|--------|
|--------| but it is not necessary

bridge, guitar 1:

|----------------------------------|
|----------------------------------|
|-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx-|
|-22222222222222223333333333333333-|

bridge, guitar 2
|-2-2-3-2-3-|
|-3-3-3-3-3-|
|-0-0-0-0-0-|

Outro is the main riff, some lead bits, and the implied chords being played.

Lack of formatting. Lack of accuracy.
