Overfloater by Soundgarden

From "Down on the Upside" Album
tabbed by jjhand

I have seen other tabs of this song but they don't look right, so I did it.
An acoustic is also used to thicken up some parts, but I wrote this for 2 
Guitars in Drop-D Tuning. Enjoy and please rate my tabs so others will check them out too!
