Staind - The Bottom tab

--STAIND - THE BOTTOM--

This is, in my opinion, Staind's best song, from their best album. It was written on a
baritone guitar, and is played live on a 7-string, but this tab is for a standard
6-string for the rest of us.

Intro (dist.)               4x

Ab|O-0-0---x-0-0-|---0-x---0-O|
Db|--0-0---x-0-0-|---0-x---0--|
uppercase = note
lowercase = rest
x = press down hard on the string above the bridge pickup
