Subject: TAB: SOUNDGARDEN "Head Down"

Having discovered this beautiful open tuning through the
guitar wizardry of the legendary Jimmy Page ( 'Friends,' 'Hats
off to Roy Harper,' and 'Bron-Y-Aur.') I was pleased to
discover that the mighty Chris Cornell and his fellow
Soundgardeners have used open C on 'Head Down' from
'Superunknown.'  Anyway this is my first posting so don't bite
my head off if the transcription isn't 100% accurate.
