Dinosaur Jr. - Repulsion
From the album 'Dinosaur' (1985)

Standard tuning

If you want to try and match J's sound from this song (and actually, most of
the first three albums) i've found that you can get quite close to it by
using a Jazzmaster (obviously) in the middle position (both pickups) with a
medium/low amount of overdrive (and heavy fuzz for the more distorted parts).

I've attempted to transcribe the strum pattern somewhat. it's a rough guide
at best, then again there's nothing wrong with mixing it up a bit anyway
once you know the chords.

put some emphasis on the B and high E strings on the '46650' chords here so they sound right

back to chorus, then the second time through after J sings 'repulsion', it goes like this:

Excellent tab, appreciate your work! Almost 100% imo, just one little change--the main riff at the end goes:

-0--0-0-0--0-0-0-0--7--7-7-7--7-7-7-7--|
-1--1-1-1--1-1-1-1--5--5-5-5--5-5-5-5--|
-0--0-0-0--0-0-0-0--4--4-4-4--4-4-4-4--|
-2--2-2-2--2-2-2-2--5--5-5-5--5-5-5-5--|
-3--3-3-3--3-3-3-3--0--0-0-0--0-0-0-0--|
---------------------------------------|
