     Well, after buying the first four PJ albums, and frankly, being kind
of disappointed with the last two, I held off on buying Yield.  But I came
home for a week and listened to my brother's copy, and I must say I think
it's a pretty solid effort.  Definitely their best work since Vs. in my
humble opinion.  Anyway, I thought I'd do the Internet community a favor
and transcribe the chords for the album.  It's rare for me to have access
to a computer, guitar, and CD player all at once so I'm taking advantage
of this oppurtunity.

Note to beginners:  Pearl Jam, like nearly all rock bands, uses the minor
pentatonic scale for almost all of their solos.  If you don't know this
scale, commit it to memory.  You'll be amazed at how much mileage you can
get out of this one pattern:

E------------------------------------------12--15--
B----------------------------------12--15----------
G--------------------------12--14------------------
D------------------12--14--------------------------
A----------12--14----------------------------------
E--12--15------------------------------------------

This is the box pattern for the E minor pentatonic scale.  Note that there
are two notes on each string, the first being 12 and the second being 14 or
15, so it's pretty easy to memorize.  Eventually you'll want to learn the
notes of the scale up and down the whole neck, and throw in other notes,
but as I've said, just using the box pattern notes and some slides, bends,
hammer-ons, and pick-offs, you can make some pretty cool-sounding solos.
Anyway, enough theory.  Time for some music.  The reason I'm telling you
all this in the first place is because I'm too lazy to tab out the solos.

there will find this useful.  Some of this is pretty rough, but I really
just meant this to be a starting ground for other people to take and
improve by adding lyrics, solos, correcting errors, etc.  Comments,
suggestions, and donations ($) gladly accepted.
