Title: Brain Of J
Album: Yield
Transcribed by: Chris Wilson and Evan Cowan (Solo and Bridge Lick) 
Email: yokel@zip.com.au, ecowan@uclink4.berkeley.edu and Richard.van.Windergen@cmg.nl

Thanks to Richard Van Windergen for 2 Corrections in the solo.
and input in the interlude.
Chris's Notes : This version is just about as close as it gets in this tuning.
Mike is Dropped-D
Stone is Standard
Gtr. 3 and 4 are both dropped-d.
Jeff hits the 6 on the low tuned down D as he moves from the 10 to the 3. 
Visa-Versa with the 10 to the 8. 
Mike just hits the 10 and the 3, then the 10 and the 8.
I included Jeff's run in the Chorus to give you a better understanding of it.

Evan's Notes : In the solo, whenever there is a  9br9
that's a double stop quarter step bend.          9br9
