SOUNDGARDEN

Beyond The Wheel

Dropped D Tuning: DADGBe

Intro:

e------------I
B------------I
G------------I
D--0----(5)--I
A--0----(5)--I
D--0----(5)--I
NOTE: The numbers in parenthesis are NOT fretted. I think they're tapped harmonics. To get them to sound right, play the first three open strings and lightly tap those same strings across the fith fret. Play this a lot during the intro and verse.

The riff played during "mother , who's your man?" and the next verse is:

D)------0----3----5----6----5--------6----5----3----0----3----5----6----5
A)------0----3----5----6----5--------6----5----3----0----3----5----6----5
D)------0----3----5----6----5--------6----5----3----0----3----5----6----5

the next riff is:                   ("b&r" = bend and release;  "h" =
hammer-on)

E)------------------------------------------------------------------
B)------------------------------------------------------------------
G)-----------------------------------------5-(h)-7------5-(h)-7**
D)------6----5----3-(b&r)----0--------0------0------0------0**
A)------6----5----3-(b&r)----0---------------------------------
D)------6----5----3-(b&r)----0---------------------------------
** this part is barely audible on the studio version. It can be heard clearly on any of the live versions.

Play that rhythm three times. the fourth time, play:

D)------6----5---------0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0
A)------6----5----3***------------------------------------------
D)------6----5----3***------------------------------------------
*** let ring while striking open string.

Chorus part

e------------------------------------------------------I
B------------------------------------------------------I
G------------------------------------------------------I
D--0----0----5----5-6---6-5---------6-5-3-0-3-5-6-5--I
A--0----0----5----5-6---6-5---------6-5-3-0-3-5-6-5--I
D--0----0----5----5-6---6-5---------6-5-3-0-3-5-6-5--I
NOTE: The last time this is played, do not play the last two chords. Go right into the Post chorus.

(Post chorus)

e-------------------------I
B-------------------------I
G-------------------------I
D--6----5----3--5--3--0--I
A--6----5----3--5--3--0--I
D--6----5----3--5--3--0--I
NOTE: After playing the above three times, only play the first three chords for the fourth time. During the next verse, play the Chorus(?) part. For the verse after that, play the Chorus(?) part, but substitute the second set of chords with a bunch of pick scrapes. Then comes the solo......Just play a D pentatonic, and strum behind the bridge if you can. As for the rhythm guitar, play the exact thing that was played under the last verse mentioned above.

The riff before and during the solo is:

D)------0----1----1----1----0
A)------0----1----1----1----0
D)------0----1----1----1----0
Ending:
D)------6----5----3----0----3----5----6-----5----3
A)------6----5----3----0----3----5----6-----5----3
D)------6----5----3----0----3----5----6-----5----3
