"SUNDAY"
by Sonic Youth
from the album A Thousand Leaves

Thurston's tuning in this song is BBGDGC, though you could simply just leave the top 
strings the same since the song revolves around the bottom strings (tuning A down one full 
and bottom E down two whole steps, giving it a very deep and low sound).

For the jam, stick to the 5th fret chord, sometimes sliding up
to the 17th fret for the octave, and more or less go between the two...
