Guitar tabs

From Visscher@ALG.FRG.eur.nl Fri Apr  4 17:01:28 1997


You Oughta Know - Alanis Morrissette
>From the album `jagged little pill'
Tabbed by Visscher@alg.frg.eur.nl

This is my first try tabbing this GREAT song. Comments, additions, correcti-
ons, better tabs, everything is very welcome. Please mail them to me.
The `+' above the tab represents the beat; `~~~' indicates the length of a
sustained note (so it is not a vibrato-sign!)
Guitar 1 (overdriven) plays the chords that are indicated above the lyrics in
the tab. An `x' means a scratch. Chord formation for guitar 1 (here, an `x'
means that the string isn't played):
F#: 244322  F#': x  9 11 11 11 x  E: 022100
B:  224442  B' : x 14 16 16 16 x  A: 002220
Guitar 2 plays the tab. It is a clean guitar, with some effects (I'm not sure,
I think maybe a chorus or a flanger )

OK, here we go.
