Greetings and salutations!  
This is a transcription of Soundgarden's Fresh Deadly Roses.  Its only 
available on some import my DJ roommate in college had, but it's a very 
cool song if you can find it (Ultramega OK??? I'm not sure).  Very simple 
guitar, but very cool.  The intro and verse are played with a bright, half-   
distorted guitar sound, letting the chords and intervals ring.  

Slides and hammerons are denoted by the underscores between notes on the 
TAB (a la ---9_10---- ).

Intro and verse:   

  { 2 times       }                        s                  ( 4 times )
1---------------------------------------------9------9---------8-----------
2--5--------5----------4--------4---------------9------9---9-----8---8-----
3----5-5-5----5-5-5------5-5-5-----5-5-5--5_6-----6------6---------5-------
4--------------------------------------------------------------------------
5--------------------------------------------------------------------------
6--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  { heavy vibrato                       }

Kim goes through that pattern a few times, and before the chorus he changes
into this nifty little atonal type thing:

Change into chorus:
                                                        h
1--------8--------------8--------------8-----------------------------------
2----8-----8---8----8-----8---8----8-----8---8----8------------------------ 
3------5-----5--------5-----5--------5-----5--------5--5_7-----------------
4--7--------------6--------------7--------------6----------6---------------
5------------------------------------------------------------5-------------
6--------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                         

The chorus is played with the Seattle super grunge mud-o-riffic beef sound. 


Chorus:
  ( 4 times         )
1--------------------------------------------------------------------------
2-------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
3-----------_7-------------------------------------------------------------
4---------------6----------------------------------------------------------
5--2--2-2-2-------5--------------------------------------------------------
6--0--0-0-0----------------------------------------------------------------

This verse-chorus sequence is repeated twice. Then they go into the bridge, 
once again in that super-thud distortiom.  It's just chords, here's the chart.


Bridge:

A    G A    G A    G F#   G         D    C D    C D    C B    C
/ // / / // / / // / / // /         / // / / // / / // / / // /


Hope you can find this song, or someone can turn you on to it.  It's a grunge
classic. 

Scare the neighbors,
Brian Smith
