"WISH FULFILLMENT" by Sonic Youth

Like 99.9% of all Sonic Youth songs, "Wish Fulfillment" is played in
an unusual tuning. Since it's a pain to tune your guitar everytime
you wanna play a Sonic Youth song, I figured I would come up with a
version of this song in standard tuning. I used the song "Little
Jammy Thing" (it's an instrumental version off the album 'Sonic Life')
as well as the album version to help with this tab. It's not going to
sound exactly like the original, but I think it sounds pretty good.

I don't think the intro's quite perfect, but the rest is cool. Nice one man!

Nice variation, always a pain playing Sonic Youth cos of the ranom tunings

I play intro as:

e [-----------------------------------------------------------------]
B [-----------------------------------------------------------------]
G [-----------0---0-----------0---0---------------------------------]
D [-----5---4-----------5---4-----------2---4-2---4---2---4---2---2-]
A [---5---5-----5-----5---5-----5-----2---2-----2-------2-------2---]
E [-3---------------3---------------0-------------------------------]
