 Shimmer Like a Girl - by Veruca Salt from the album "Blow it out your Ass!"
 ===================

 Dropped-D tuning [D A D G B E] it doesn't HAVE to be dropped-d, but i find
                                it much easier to play, meaner as well.

 (first 15 sec or so is just feedback)
 guitar 1 distortion 
 
 intro - 2 times

 d|--/11--11----------------------8---8--8-/11-11---5---------------------
 a|--/11--11-(rest)---------------8---8--8-/11-11---5---------------------
 d|--/11--11----------------------8---8--8-/11-11---5---------------------
                                                    ^ (hold)
  
  This goes right back to the verse (i forget how many times) and then
  the whole chorus thing again. 
  The only difference is during "shimmer sparkle while you can" hold that
  chord instead of rest. Next is the kickin' riff during the middle of the
  song which goes something like this: ("^" means accent)
  (This part may not be 100% accurate, give me comments/corrections if 
  you got them)
     ______________  7 times __________________

 d|--5---5---5--5--/8-8---8---8---3---3---3--3--/6--6--6-6-6--------------
 
 guitar 2 comes in playing the main chorus riff, which gets louder and goes
 for quite a while during the last chorus and the "doo do doo"s. 
 
 outro
