Come On Down Tab

   
It is rumored that the band Green River named itself after the prolific
serial killer that terrorized the Seattle, Washington area in the 1980's and
1990's. The killer dumped and partially buried female victims in the vicinity
of the Green River, a river which runs through south King County and eventually
empties into Puget Sound.

The song 'Come On Down' commemorates the Green River Killer, at the time of
the recording the killings were at their height; the killer was eventually
discovered and arrested in 2001.

Note 1: apologies for not constructing the tab in measures. Also
I did not want to take on the solo, would have taken a long time.

Note 2: the strum patterns can vary during the song. This is grunge!

Note 3: on the original recording, the main riff at the 7th fret often
takes on a darker minor sound, add the 2nd string like this
|----------------|
|----8-8-8-8-8-8-|  etc.

|--8\7-7-7-7-7-7-|
|----------------|

Note 4: on the part noted by the downstrum/upstrum, emphasize the first
downstrum, the next downstrum and upstrum are a rapid lighter touch:
