Soundgarden - "Zero Chance"
From "Down on the Upside" Album
Standard Tuning.
tabbed by jjhand, with help from http://web.stargate.net/soundgarden/tabs/

Some rhythms below are difficult due to the changing time signature in this song. 
I labeled those changes for easier counting. In particular, the 11/8 measures have 
3 extra eighth notes (one and a half beats more), and 7/8 bars are shorter than 4/4 
by an eighth note (half a beat shorter). Please comment or rate.
