Green Light  Sonic Youth

This one's sorta off the top of my head, so bear with me. I haven't really taken time to figure out the other guitar, which is probably Lee's, so you'll have to do that on your own.
GREEN LIGHT by Sonic Youth from the LP EVOL
This song is in F#F#F#F#EB. The other might be in F#F#GGAA, but I'm not sure. Experiment. Thru the verses, the othe rguitar just picks behind the bridge, I think.
Well, the first guitar is kinda weird. It has the main riffs, but pretty much sticks to one note for most of the song. Listen to the record.
Main riff: Chords for Second riff:
[B]  
[E]F# 2 2 2 0 2 2 2 0 5 5 5 5 2 2 2 0 5 7 2
F# 2 2 2 0 2 2 2 0 5 5 5 5 2 2 2 0 5 7 2
[F#]  
[F#]

Once again. listen to the record for the timing.

I realize that this is pretty useless, but I hadn't seen a Green Light tab on any sites and someone had requested it, so here's my best shot.
