Soundgarden - "Black Rain"
From the album "Telephantasm"

tabbed by jjhand

This song was originally recorded during the Badmotorfinger sessions.
The sound is raw & Chris's vocals are wailing just like several of their
early hits. Please rate or comment.

change this:
A|--------------------8b9r--6~---|
D|-0---0-2h3-2p0-0-0-------------|

to this:
A|--------------------8b9r--7~---|
D|-0---0-2h3-2p0-0-0-------------|
