STP - "Hickory Dichotomy"
From "Stone Temple Pilots" Album (2010)
Tuning: Electric - Standard
        Electric 2 & Acoustic - DGDGBD (the low D may not be needed though)
tabbed by jjhand


This song is tough to track for individual guitars due to overdubs, but I 
think this tab works nicely. Great slide guitar here! Please rate & comment.

great tab, perfectt, just an error:
"Selling that story, are you holding your lion?" It should be:
"selling my story, are you holy or lying?"

Got that Garageking, I didn't have the album & used what lyrics were available on the net. Glad you caught that, now the lyrics make more sense.
