Alright, can I just say that when you buy a tab book, that claims "Play Like It Is!," then you should actually have the album tabbed in its ****ing entirety as it was recorded!

So I bought Soundgarden Badmotorfinger's tab book, and only lists the rhythm part for New Damage. For the lead parts (which is the only reason why I bought the book) it just states "w/ lead gtr. ad lib"

WTF?!!! There goes 20 bucks

===========================================================================
So I'm asking for your guys' help with tabbing out the "ad-lib" parts for Soundgarden's New Damage.

The "ad lib" solos are located
Intro for 5 bars
2nd & 3rd Verse (it's a new word for plague) for 4 bars
Bridge (Get out before you drown, Get out, Yeah) for 3 bars
Accompany Solo/Interlude (After Before you drown, Get out, Yeah) for 10 bars
Outro for 18 bars



Here's the song

Here's a good tab for the rhythm part

I don't think Thayil is tapping the notes, just a bunch of hammer and pull-offs (I could be wrong though).
Maybe something like this in the beginning:

...........................Let Ring>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
e|-----*13/--15--h17--p15--h17--p15--h17--p15----13--h15--p13--|
B|----------(15)---------------------------------15------------|
G|--(0)--------------------------------------------------------|
D|--(0)--------------------------------------------------------|
G|--(0)--------------------------------------------------------|
D|--(0)--------------------------------------------------------|


* means Artificial Harmonic


The Intro/Verses aren't right, should go like this:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------0------------------------------------------0------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--1--2--1----0----5-------*4*-------3--------1--2--1-----0---------|


*4*- Replace w/ 3rd fret on the 5th string for the verses


And the only lead riffs they show goes like:

>>>>2nd Time Cornell sings "Before you drown, Get out, Yeah" (With the so-called/bs "Ad Lib" Solo)
e|------------------------------||-------------------------------------||------------------------|
B|------------------------------||-------------------------------------||------------------------|
G|------10--12--12FB--12--10----||------10--12--12FB--(R12)--10--------||------------------------|
D|--12--------------------------||--12----------------------------8----||--(8)/--7----(7)\-------|
G|------------------------------||-------------------------------------||------------------------|
D|------------------------------||-------------------------------------||------------------------|

And the Accompany Solo/Interlude (w/ the ad lib solo in the background)
e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------3--h5-----------------------|
G|--5----4------------5---------3----5---------------|
D|------------5--3----------------------3----5--0----|


Any thoughts?
