# Sonic Youth - Pink Steam Tab

Guitar I  - Thurston
Guitar II - Lee

Most of Lee's (Guitar II) parts have distortion and lots of reverb and most of
Thurston's (Guitar I) have mild distortion. I'm not 100% sure on who plays what
parts but I've done my best to figure it out, it sounds pretty close but email
sound right.

Edited some parts and the end solo because they didn't sound perfect ;D
