Hole - Malibu Live Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I do not own this song or any of the lyrics. I simply Love the band.
 I noticed a few album versions of the song but not the unplugged 
(Live) version which has a additional ending as well as add-in lyrics 
and different chords in places. This is the unplugged version with 
the additional ending esc. I also find this version graceful with nice 
backing vocals and a bass back-up, but because we are not all in 
bands it sounds perfect solo.

This song gains in places and you really have to give 
it a listen a few times to get the rhythm and vocals 
down good. Courtney has a way of pronouncing things 
while she is singing, its a groove you have to get into 
with practice. Awesome Song though, its worth it. Fun 
to play live or in your bedroom :) If this was hard to 
understand forgive me its my first try at this.
