Sonic Youth - Disappearer
Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)
Capo on the 3rd fret!!

This is one of my favorite SY songs, 
but it is so hard to tune a guitar to CCEBGD to play it! 
That's why I've tabbed an accurate version in standard tuning. 
Remember that capo on the 3rd fret, or else it won't sound the same.

As far as strumming patterns go, 
listen to the song or listen to this video to get the gist of it:

Here are all the parts to the song. 
The sequence of these parts can be found at the end of the tab.
