Song: Drunken Butterfly
Band: Sonic Youth
Source: http://www.sonicyouth.com/mustang/tab/
        Tabbed by nollie (gav)
Tuning: F#F#GGAA

This tab may sound shit when you play it yourself but add bass,
another guitar, drums and vocals and it will sound perfect.


INTRO: The intro is just a heap of string noise (mutes, rakes
and pick slides). I got the right sound by sliding the pick up
and down the strings furiously...rest your fret hand on top of
the strings to prevent the strings from ringing.

VERSE 1
Guitar 1:

VERSE AFTER CHORUS
Guitar 1
I think just plays some rythmn, try 1st fret on the F#s or maybe
just open f#s.

Guitar 2
A -----------------------------------------------------------|
A -----------------------------------------------------------|
G ---20--17--19----17--19b-----------------------------------|
G -----------------------------------------------------------|
F#-----------------------------------------------------------|
F#-----------------------------------------------------------|

After this I think there is some sort of slide stuff followed by 2
monster pick slides before the music is the same as the first verse.
