Playing Your Song
Hole - Celebrity Skin

Chords:
C# A D G# (guessing from bass tab posted, seems to fit)

w/ Capo on 4 (much easier way to play)
A  – x02220 or 577655*
F  – 133311 
Bb – x13331 or 799877*
E  - 022100

Notes: on my acoustic, with male vocals, a capo on 2 sounds better to me, 
but that doesn’t match up with the bass tab I borrowed to work the chords
out. Try either, the chords are same. You can also slide down between
Bb and A in this formation for a nice sound (especially at start of 
chorus). Anyway, this is my favorite Hole song and I was bummed to see only
1 bass tab available for it. Let me know if it was enough, I knew you 
could “try” getting chords from bass lines. So, I did. Now, I await the 
slaughter from all you pros. At worst, I start progression to a good tab 
or this great little song. I can take the abuse, but post something 
constructive as well.

*Also, if you use the capo and barre the A (577655), F (133211) 
and Bb (799877) you can play the entire song on sliding along the E form 
frets (wish I had an electric handy to try that out).
