Ok now that there's all the technical stuff i'll tell you how it all
fits together.:
First off you want to play with slight distortion with a bit of choruss.
Intro: Riff A, Riff B, Rhythm 1
Verse 1: Rhythm 2 (twice), Rhythm 1
Verse 2: Rhythm 2 (twice), Rhythm 1
Verse 3: Rhythm 2, Rhythm 1, Interlude, Solo (which i didnt include)
Outro A: Riff B, Rhythm 1 (don't repeat)
Outro B: Rhythm 2, Rhythm 1(twice), Interlude, Riff B
For those of you who are confused on which chords to use, here ya go.
G=320033
D=xx0232
A=x02220
E=022100
This is a *LOOSE* transcription to the song, ie: in certain areas you pick
around with the chords. And yes i didnt transcribe the solo.

Well, this was published in Guitar or something a bit after I figured it out.
Oh well, mine is very close, just not very orderly, but I've been too sick
to care. If you listen to the song you should be able to figure out easily
what goes where.

Piece of cake. I didn't do the middle part with all the incedental noises
as it's too hard to hear what's going on.

My transcription of "Black Gold" by Soul Asylum.
Done by ear, so if something just doesn't sound right.. well, hey.
Whaddya want for free?
Because I felt like it, I transcribed both guitars. If you want to
fudge it for one (likely), play the acoustic part and you should do
well enough. As usual, listen to the song for the correct timings as
getting them all right on the tab is a royal pain in the ass. You'll
find that the guitar parts are well-synchronized to the vocals so it
shouldn't be too hard.

There you have it! Sorry if it's confusing but except for the solo
(which involves sound effects, a lot of feedback, and other fun stuff
that you really can't reproduce in ASCII) it should be pretty close.
Hope you enjoy it!
