Dinosaur Jr. - Little Fury Things
From the album 'You're Living All Over Me' (1987)

Standard tuning, capo on 2nd fret

---

A lot of Dino's earlier songs have wierd song structures and don't follow the usual 
kind of deal, so I might've technically labeled a verse as a chorus or vice
versa, but you should have an idea of which bit is which.

To get the harsh wah sound in the intro, it helps to put your fuzz (or other distortion) in
front of the wah in the signal chain, so it goes guitar>fuzz>wah. That way, you're
distorting the signal coming from the wah and you get this really nasty harsh wah sound of
awesomeness. This gets used on songs like Kracked, and Drawerings to name a couple.

Like I say, I can get a quite close tone to this song by using a Jazzmaster with both pickups
selected, some mild overdrive for the rhythm/'clean' parts, and heavy fuzz for
the distorted parts. Then maybe toy with your amp EQ and you can pretty much
nail the 80s Dinosaur tone.

==intro riff

(not relative to capo - actual fret numbers used)
really weird chords, but after checking live videos, this is as close as I can
figure them out. seems J was all into weird chords on that album.

Then repeat the chorus for the rest of the song, and you're done :] get back on the wah for the
second half of the outro, slowly move it back and forth flanger style. in the recording it's
just left in one position for pure noise value, but when played live the wah's usually got
some movement in there.
