There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Here is my take on Quest by Dinosaur Jr, this is my favourite Dino track. Sounds magic on acoustic...

Cheers for the other poster who I borrowed from

(downstrum 1st Em)
Em       G        D       Am (fill 1)
Turning toward a time so free
Em       G        D       Am (fill 2)
the justice has finally escaped
Em       G        D       Am (fill 1)
dripping words of yesterday
Em       G        D       Am7/G (fill 3)
set my feeble mind astray
   Fill 1     Fill 2       Fill 3

D             Em       (X2)

C                           Fadd9 (xx3213)
Yearn and see the glow of her eyes as I appear
sigh of satisfaction gave the seetest sound.
The staircase has one too many steps,
I've already started back down.

         (slide) (picking)
G    F     Am/Bm    Bm(xx4430)   (X2)

Em         G            D             Am 
Love the catapillars munchin' on the leaves,
pitter patter makes me forget my disease.
Bugs have feelers just like me,
when I'm feeling oh so lonely.

D              Em       (X2)

A(507657) (on and off e-string 7)  
Em  G     Em  G

Disturbin' every sense of grace
                   Em      G      Em    G
the lady wouldn't give me a taste.
The joy leaves me that much,
               Em     G     Em    G
it lives inside her touch.

         (slide) (picking)
G    F     Am/Bm    Bm(xx4430)   (X2)

Em      G       D       Am
Why won't you be my friend?
I would love to hold you tonight even if we just pretend
Why won't you be my friend?

(Happy slap that guitar...)

Em      G       D       Am
Why won't you be my friend?
I would love to hold you tonight even if we just pretend
Why won't you be my friend?
Be my friend

D             Em       (X2)

C                        Fadd9
Love to meet the one who broke my heart,
I know she'd melt me with her dance,
subtle colors, her sweet smell,
it's a shame she'll never get that chance.

And so it goes...

Great tab man, 5*'s. Just a few little additions and things i've seen J do when playing it live:

On the D-Em before the chorus, palm mute a bit of Em, then for the last few strums lift off the d string in the Em for 020000 (listen to the song and you'll see what I mean with the DUDU strokes).

After the arpeggiated C in the chorus, sounds like it goes Fmaj7 (xx3210) before adding the little finger for Fadd9.

For fun, when you kick on the fuzz after the chorus and after the slide to Bm, try bending the g string on the 4th fret followed by a quick slide down and up on the bass E (what is this technique called?)
