                             Sister Ray - The Velvet Underground
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Gallagher2006

Tuning: Standard

I’ve only tabbed the essentials of this jam session...

e|-3-3--x--3-3-3--x-3-3-3--x--3-3---1--0-----|
B|-3-3--x--3-3-3--x-3-3-3--x--3-3---1--1-----|
G|-0-0--x--0-0-0--x-0-0-0--x--0-0---2--0-----|
D|-0-0--x--0-0-0--x-0-0-0--x--0-0---3--2-----|
A|-2-2--x--2-2-2--x-2-2-2--x--2-2---x--3-----|
E|-3-3--x--3-3-3--x-3-3-3--x--3-3---1--x-----|

This is the main part of the song, and is repeated lots.

A bridge section uses the G just hammered for a little bit...

e|--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-0h3----|
B|--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-0h3----|
G|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------|
D|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------|
A|--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-0h2----|
E|--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-0h3----|

For the rest of the song just improv in G and play the chords G/F/C

I think the scale being used is the mixolydian in G...

So, this scale...

e|--------------------------------------------3--5--7----|
B|----------------------------------3--5--6--------------|
G|----------------------------4--5-----------------------|
D|--------------------3--5--7----------------------------|
A|-----------3--5--7-------------------------------------|
E|--3--5--7----------------------------------------------|

Enjoy!

It may be repetitive, but you have over simplified it to such an extent as to make it unrecognizable.
