Subject: CHRD/TAB "Backwater"

Here is a general transcription of "Backwater" by Meat puppets. I didn't have 
time to nail down the bridge so you'll have to do some interpreting on your own. 
(I'll work more on it later). The intro lick that I have transcribed is also 
just an approximation of what is played. It's a simple lick in E major 
pentatonic that you should be able to pick out purely by ear. I'll follow up 
with more detail in a few days. Meanwhile we can get started on it.
