=============================================================================

Tab Symbols used:

X = Muted note
~ = "Held note" (let note ring for extended amounts time)
_b_ = Bend from one note to another

------------------------------------

Notes:

This is one of the faster, hardcore punk-ish songs by Pixies (unlike their other stuff.) 
can't get the timing for some of the riffs just by reading the tab, you have to listen 
the song to really understand when to do everything.

It's on Youtube if you want to listen.
