                          "Why?" by The Meat Puppets
                         from the CD "Too High To Die"
                         transcribed by Wesley Torres

This is in 6/8 time but I wrote it in 12/8 to save space.
They use two acoustic guitars on this one.

That's pretty much the whole thing.  There is a chord progression change in
the middle that I haven't figured out yet.  Same with the solo.  I'll post
those when I get a chance later.

Heres my Tab for "Why?". Play it fingerstyle or with a plectrum.
There are some hammer ons in the main bits as well, like 0h3 when
your going on to the C chord etc. Also, I play some of the bits,
like the F chord bit, lower than in the song. Try playing it on
DGBe strings instead of EADG if you like. Whatever sounds best to you...
( theres no timing in the tab but its easy if you play along )

Have fun! Roof with a Hole and Chemical Garden on the way...
