Artist: Sonic Youth
Album: The Eternal
Song: Malibu Gas Station
Tuning: C C E B G D
6th string is tuned down 2 steps
5th string is tuned up 1 1/2 steps
4th string is tuned up 1 step
3rd string is tuned up 2 steps
2nd string is tuned down 2 steps
1st string is tuned down 2 steps

If this sucks, keep in mind this is my fist tab! So forgive me if it's bad, especially 
this is a whacked-out tuning!

BTW, you will need to improv. on the 1st string at times, so here are notes to improv. on:
1st string-0-1-3-5-7-9-10-12-13-15-17-19-21-22-24

I know Sonic Youth is atonal and doesn't follow key; however, they might sometimes 
key only in some parts of a few of their songs.

Intro:           (on occasions add these patterns in, too)
-------15---    -------17---    -------19---|

Mainly the improv. I said at the beginning, but sometimes add this in:
----15-|
---15--|
--15---|
-15----|

Bridge: (you can still improv. or do this:)
-5-6-8-5-3-3----0----0-|

Interlude:
---any note up here-
---any note up here-
--------------------|

Gradually get more random with the pair of notes up top

Whatever goes. Oh ya, lotsa distortion!
