On the Brink
Dinosaur Jr
------------

The point of me going through the trouble for this is that hopefully it
will help someone else out with the song.  I'm still learning, so
hopefully someone can help me out too!  Post your corrections and
suggestions!  I've worked out the basics of all the songs on
Without a Sound, so if anyone is interested I can pound out another
song.  And sorry about the bad job on the lyrical transcription!  He
just tends to mumble sometimes.

Capo on the third fret.  All the chords and tab are relative to the capo.

G D C D x 2

This is how I play the little G D C D progression, but I really don't
think that it's the same as J plays.
