Those are most of the riffs. If you can read this, you can piece the song together with what I have provided. If you find anything wrong with this (you probably will, I'm to tired to check it over for mistakes), you can E-mail me. Also E-Mail me if you have SoundGarden tabs that are correct. I'm tired of geting tabs that suck.
