Artist: Sonic Youth
Song: Hits of Sunshine (for Allen Ginsberg)
Tabbed by: The guy that writes good tabs, Jonathan Martinez

Sonic Youth—what can I say? They are the masters of improvisation, as
exhibited on this song. You don't absolutely need effects, but it's a
nice touch. I am extremely confident in this tab. I can do everything
short of guarantee accuracy. If you disagree with this, please email
me and tell me what you think.

Standard Tuning (E—A—D—G)

Intro

G————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
D————————5——5————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
A—————7————————7—————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
E————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
this is played at the last measure of the intro.

Verse

G——————————————————————————————|——|——————————————————————————————————|
D——————————————————————————————|——|——————————————————————————————————|
A—————7——5——7——5——7——5—————————|X2|—————7————————————————————————————|
E———————————————————————7——5———|——|——————————————————————————————————|

G————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
D————5——4————————5——4————————5——4————————————————————————————————————|
A——————————5——7————————5———————————5—————————————————————————————————|
E—————————————————————————7——————————————————————————————————————————|

Repeat this a few times, then it goes into the Improv Jam. The last
time you are supposed to play the above progression, you start to play
the improv jam instead.

Improv Jam

G————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
D————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
A—————7——7—————5——5——5———————————————————————————————————————————————|
E———————————7———————————7————————————————————————————————————————————|

About 16 measures into the improv jam you turn on the fuzz/phase shift.
This progression is played through the end of the song.

That's it! I only ask 2 things: 1. Have fun with this, and 2. don't
jack my work. Feel free to post this on your tab website if you have
one, but only after you email me and ask permission and only
under MY name.
