Hole - Asking For It tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     Asking For It by Hole
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Courtney Love's feminist anthem from 1994's 'Live Through This' (titled after lyrics
from this song, actually). There are several tabs/chord charts on here, but they have some
issues in that they are a little bit too broad; in other words, there's a little more
going on than just strumming open D, A, G and F chords here. In some instances certain notes
from these chords aren't even played, and there are power chords in place of them as
well in areas. There are two guitars in the song, but I've meshed it together so it can be
played by one. Also note that the bass is really heavy on this track and the guitar goes 
from being sparse to prominent in areas. There are a couple of instances where the bassline
completely takes over and the guitar chords are strummed sporadically. Regardless, the
tablature is precise enough and as complete as I can make it. Drop D tuning is typically
advised on this song, but it plays fine in standard tuning as well.
