Tablature guitare : Sonic Youth – Sunday

Song: Sunday
Artist: Sonic Youth
Album: A Thousand leaves
Tuning: DADGBe (dropped D)

-Actually this song should be played in Eb(1/2 step down), but i'm too lazy to
tune my guitar down. Anyway it should sound the same.
-All the tremolos, bends  must be made with the tremolo arm to create this
dissonant weird soud.
-I wrote the parts so when you read the tab you know exactly when the lead part
comes in the rythm part.

Gtr 1: Short delay, very light overdrive, neck pickup, boost treble
Gtr 2: Medium delay, medium distorsion, bridge pickup

~  wide tremolo
/  slide
=  bend 1/4 (blues curl)
h  hammer on
p  pull off
*  hold note
gb gradual bend
