                             Sugar Kane - Sonic Youth
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Rachel
Email: rvandeve@mscd.edu

Tuning: Standard

*Note* I tabbed this for a friend I work with 
because she couldn't find a tab that was decent. 
I do not listen to Sonic Youth at all, so I don't
know if their album version is different from the 
music video. Point is, I used the recording from their
music video that is posted on youtube, and that's where 
the times I have used come from.

*Note* The next part of the solo is nearly impossible 
to write out. Both guitars are generating lots of feedback 
and doing various obnoxious noise making techniques such as 
pick slides and crap.

The song ends with a note in the bass, so both 
guitars kind of stop abruptly. E-mail me with

This is the most thorough version of Sugar Kane. I can't believe she tabbed from the music video and doesn't know Sonic Youth!Thanks!
