EXPRESSWAY TO YR SKULL – Sonic Youth
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AKA Madonna, Sean and Me or The Crucifixion of Sean Penn
From the album Evol
Tabbed by: Jay Rangdale
Email: jayrangdale@hotmail.co.uk

Tuning: Standard

I know SY use any combination of bizarre tunings but this is how I play it in 
standard and it still sounds suitably discordant. Let the open strings ring for 
extra disturbing spacey feel.
One of my favourite Sonic Youth songs.Forgive me if I murder it. Its my first 
attempt at tabbing so cut me a bit of slack.

And the last bit? Yr guess is as good as mine, although it is tied to Kim’s 
descending bass line……Good luck with that!
