Guitar tabs

Written by Bob Mould
Recorded by Husker Du on album "New Day Rising" (SST)
File format: tab
Transribed by Gary Von Colln
This song has a little bit of everything: loud parts and quiet parts,
power chords, double string riffs, and single string picking.  It
shows a nice use of chord substitution.  The verse chords start as
D/C/G/A.  The second time through the first and third chords are
replaced with their respective VIm, thus Bm/C/Em/A.  The interlude has
an interesting picking pattern and "drone" note, the high D.  The song
sounds good as a solo accoustic piece, in which case I usually play
the chords in their open positions (except for A chord diagramB minorBm).  On electric
guitar, it sounds good to mix up the open chords with some bar chords.
I'm not sure what mix is used on the recording, but I think the A chord diagramE minorEm and
A chord diagramA augmentedA chords used in Reiif A chord diagramC majorC are played open.
