Key: E
 
Here is a general transcription of 'Backwater' by Meat puppets. I didn't have  
time to nail down the bridge so you'll have to do some interpreting on your own.  
(I'll work more on it later). The intro lick that I have transcribed is also  
just an approximation of what is played. It's a simple lick in E major  
pentatonic that you should be able to pick out purely by ear. I'll follow up  
with more detail in a few days. Meanwhile we can get started on it.
