Apparently the band did not play this song much live. Videos are hard to come by. This is the only one I was able to locate, but it has poor audio. You can see a lot of Peter Buck’s hand position, though.
Thanks as always to Fast Ocular for a good deal of this song that fills in the pieces.
I’ve changed a couple of things based on the live video, but otherwise, it is pretty similar to his.
Before I saw Fast Ocular’s video, I had figured out the drop D tuning from the chord Peter Buck plays at the beginning of this 1984 video–song was brand new (a lot of these old bootlegs get sped up, perhaps form the tapes being imperfect over time or just from being recorded over and over–I recorded the song and slowed it down about 5% and it sounded great):
Intro/Chorus (remember drop D tuning):
Em (lift fingers), G5/D, Em (lifting again), then:
Then end Chorus on G/D
For the simple “solo” Bend the 3rd fret, 2nd string and slide up from 3rd string 2nd to 4th frets):
So here it is–a rough version of it anyway:
