                      Monkey Trick - The Jesus Lizard
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Craig

Tuning: Standard

This is easily one of the best songs ever.  I'm not sure about all of these notes, Duane doesn't
exactly play guitar in a traditional manner.  Also, some of them are sort of hidden in 
mix.  But for the most part this tab is accurate.

If a note looks like this (9) that means that it might be there and it might not, I can't 
tell.
