Fret-Buzz: Spoonman

Difficulty: Medium | Guitar used: Epiphone SG | Tuning: Drop-D 

This was the first single released from the classic 1994 Soundgarden album Superunknown. Although written by frontman Chris Cornell, the name came from Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament.

The song is in drop-D tuning so remember to tune the 6th string down to D. Although just simple one finger power chords, the rhythm may cause a bit of a headache at first- Soundgarden frequently used non-standard 7/4 and 5/4 timings, to name just a couple! Take it slow and concentrate on getting the timing right.

                                                            P.M.
