   THE DAY I TRIED TO LIVE - Soundgarden
-------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Brandon
e-mail: brandonvin@gmail.com

I tabbed this out because all of the tabs I have seen were missing
a lot in the chorus! Here's something that's much more accurate.

Tuning: standard EADG



(After guitar intro)

GREAT TAB!
Finally a tab from someone who's understood how to indicate music, hah, and someone who has actually understood the time signatures here!

A little thing. All the notes in the main riff are played on the E-string. (That's a lot easier to play as well.) But generally don't be afraid of using the high fret. The low E-string actually gives a full-bodied tone!

seems like the tunings a little off

I think the time signature in the verse is 4/4, 3/4 and then 4/4, 4/4, rather than 7/8 followed by 4/4.
The current form sounds like half time. I think the tempo is 134 as opposed to 67bpm.
