Dinosaur Jr. - Yeah We Know
From the album 'Bug' (1988)
Tabbed by Pete Conneely

---

Really under-rated song off one of the best Dino albums, IMO. They don't seem to 
play much stuff off Bug anymore except for a couple like Budge occasionally (and obviously Freak Scene), so I
was surprised to see a video of J + The Fog doing this one live, which is the basis for most of
this tab (so it's got to be mostly correct, i'm sure).

There's a bit of wah usage here and there, not really a problem though if you don't have
one since it's not too heavily used. (though if you do have one, it should be easy enough to
hear where. it's hard to tab wah pedal movement..)

There's slight variations on the stuff below throughout the song, so don't expect perfect
results if you just stick to what you see here. If you've heard the song a few times before
you'll know where it all goes though :]

==intro/verse

 (wah)                                                                               (w   a   h)

                                                          on the 4th        E|-----5-5---------|
                                                          time through,     B|-----3-3---------|
                                                          play this instead G|-----4-4---------|
                                                          of the bit above  D|-----5-5---------|
                                                          to lead into      A|-----------------|
                                                          the chorus        E|-----------------|

==chorus

E|-0--0-0--0-0-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-|           |-------------5-5--|
B|-1--1-1--1-1-1--3--3-3-3-3-3-3-|           |-1-----------3-3--|
G|-2--2-2--2-2-2--4--4-4-4-4-4-4-| x3, then: |-2-(hold)----4-4--|

A|-------------------------------|           |------------------|
E|-------------------------------|           |------------------|


==solo
like I usually say, since J improvises every solo, you should try
as well, but here's a go at what's on the record:

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------7----7-7\5---------------------------------------------------------|
G|--4-h5/7p5-4h5/9\7~~---/9----9-------7-7/9--7-\4-0---0h2p0--4p0--5p4--0-4--2p0-2p0-----------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------4-5-4--2--|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------2--|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0--|

E|-12---12--12--12--12--12-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-15b--15b-15b-15b-15b-15b--15~~----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------0-0--7-0-0-7-0-7/9-7--7-7-7-7\5-4-5/7-5-4-5-4-----------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------5-5/7-----5-----|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------8-7---5\3-|

then when the solo ends it's just A and F again, like so (use wah on the muted strums):

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

repeat x4, then:
                              (wah)
E|------------------------------0--|
B|------------------------------1--|
G|-1-(hold, slow tremelo dip)------|
D|-2-------------------------------|
A|-2-------------------------------|
E|-0-------------------------------|



then repeat verse and chorus as necessary. enjoy!

Great tab! There's an alternative way that J plays the 1st Fmaj7/A of the chorus which is x03550 . Also i'm sure there's an E that ends the solo section not the Am. Fantastic song and thanks for tabbing the Dino!!
