Hole - Pretty On The Insideclouds tab

From 1991's 'Pretty on the Inside'. This is the album closer made up of two songs but
was recorded as a single piece, so I figured I'd give a tab for the entire track as it is
on the album, recorded conjointly. The first song is the title track, "Pretty on the
Inside", which serves as a prologue to a noisy cover of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides, Now",
under the title "Clouds". Two guitars are used in each song: Courtney Love is playing
the less-distorted rhythm and Eric Erlandson is playing heavily distorted lead and uses a
wah-pedal in "Clouds". Both are actually really easy to play if you can nail the rhythm 
patterns. Listen to the song(s) for help.

Repeat this chord progression as tabbed through the remainder of "Pretty on the Inside".


****CLOUDS*****

All you do here is repeat the G and C chords throughout the song alternately for its
entire duration; this same chord progression is used for every verse so it's pretty simple.
You can play the open chords if you like, but the G and C power chords work as well. I
believe they play the power chords on the album version. A tab for these chords is
provided below if for some reason you don't know them. A wah-pedal is also used on these
to give them an almost siren-like effect.


"Bad boy..... Rows and flows of angel hair / And ice cream castles in the air..."

"Well now my friends are acting strange / They shake their heads, man, they say I've
changed, well..."

"I've looked at life from both sides now / From win and lose and still somehow, it's
life's illusions I recall, I,
I really don't know, I really don't know, I really don't know, I really don't know, I
really don't know life at all."
