Tuning:DADgbe


I Know there are already other correct tabs out there,
 but I figured this out on an acoustic, and my translation is slightly
 different in the way I play the chords and things.
I alter a little bit on the verses doing a
little more improvisation for fun, it makes the song more
interesting to play .

A couple of side notes
During the Chorus, you don't need to play it
exactly as it is. I always play it slopily.
The only reason I tabbed it like that is
because that is how it sounded when i
actually recorded it to help me tab it
accurately.

Also, during the improvisations I talked about
I would usually do something along the lines of these.

e|-------------2--=-------------2---=-----------------2----|
B|-----------3----=-------3-------3-=-------------3-----3--|
G|-------2--------=-----2-----------=-----------2---2------|
D|-2/4-5---0------=-4-4-----2-0-----=---4---4-5------------|
A|----------------=-----------------=-0---3----------------|
D|----------------=-----------------=----------------------|

Since this is a grunge song, it is generally easy to play,
but hard to tab out because of the sloppy playing
style used so as I always will suggest for any grunge
songs, play sloppy, why not, it's more fun to play
that way.
