From: ponies2@computek.net (Keith Barron)
Subject: Get On The Snake - Soundgarden



Song: Get On The Snake
Band: Soundgarden
Album: Louder Than Love
Tuning: Standard

Here's a really cool song. Most of its in 9/4 time though...so you can't
dance to it.

Intro: 
(1/4)   (4/4) Hoo!
G------||-----------------|----------------|-------------------|  
D-DRUM-||o----------------|----------------|-------------------|  
A-FILL-||o----------------|----------------|-------------------|  
E------||--3b--5-3-5-3-5--|-3b--5-3-5-3-5--|-3b--5-3-5-/8-7-5--|  
             
      Play 3 times
G-----------------||
D----------------o||                                     
A----------------o||
E-3b--5-3-5-3-5---||

Don't play the last bar the third time and hold the last note for 2 more beats.

Guit. 2 comes in the second time playing this with harmonics:
                                         Play 3 1/2 times
E||-------------------------|---------------------------||
B||-------------------------|-----7-7-7-----------------||     
G||o----7-7-7---------------|------------7-7-7---------o||      
D||o-----------7-7-7----7---|-------------------7---7--o||      
A||-------------------7---7-|---------------------7-----||       
E||-------------------------|---------------------------||     

Hold the last note there as well.

Verse: (9/4)                                     Play 4X
G||-----------------------------------------------------||   
D||o---------------------------------------------------o||        
A||o-7----5------------------5h7--5--------------------o||        
E||------------7--5--3--0--------------7--5--3--0-------||

Chorus: (9/4)
G---------------------------------------------------|            
D---------------------------------------------------|            
A-7----5------------------5h7--5--------------------|            
D-----------7--5--3--0--------------7--5--3--5------|

 (4/4)
G-------------------------|---------------------------|          
D-------------------------|---------------------------|          
A-5h7--5------------------|----------5-h-7------------|          
E-----------7--5--3--6----|-(6)-------------5--0------|          
            
Then play the 2 other verses like above but gtr. 2 plays these notes instead
of the 7 and 5 on the A string:

2nd Verse:     3rd Verse:
E------------|--------------|
B--9----7----|--5-----3-----|
G--9----7----|--7b----5b----|
D--9----7----|--------------|
A------------|--------------|
E------------|--------------|

Play this after the last chorus and during solo:
 
(4/4)                                              Play alot
G||-----------------------|--------------------------------||    
D||o----------------------|-------------------------------o||     
A||o-5--------------------|------5h7--5-------------------o||     
E||------0----7--5--3--0--|-(0)------------7--5--3--0------||      
Then play:
(4/4)
G------------|------------|------------|------------|            
D------------|------------|------------|------------|            
A--7--5------|-(5)--------|------------|------------|            
E------------|------------|--7--5------|-(5)--------|

                           (Bass starts playing the solo riff)
G------------|------------|------------|------------|
D------------|------------|------------|------------|             
A------------|------------|------------|------------|            
E--3--0------|-(0)--------|-(0)--------|-(0)--------|            
                            FEEDBACK^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Lyrics:

Get on the snake
With a swarm of motor flies
Get on the snake
Under the Cola colored sky

Don't worry, everything's clean
Road worthy, hungry and mean

Get on the snake
Where the metal river bleeds
Get on the snake
Where you never will believe

Hey baby, what's your disease
My heart's bleeding, I'm dying to leave

Get on the snake
Where the water turns to steam
Get on the snake
With a suicide machine

Don't worry, everything's clean
Road worthy, hungry and mean
Hungry and mean...
Hungry and mean... 

The song is about a road. Not a penis. I'm working on 'Full On Kev's Mom'
because I couldn't find the tab anywhere and I figured I owed it to society
to tab it out. Also coming soon:
'I Awake'
'Hands All Over'

I want the tab to 'No Wrong, No Right'
