			     Pale Blue Eyes by Hole

Devastating Velvet Underground cover accented by some agonizing howls and screams
courtesy of Ms. Love. This version of the song is a live recording from the band's 1995 EP
'Ask For It'. Same chords as the original, just lots of distortion and feedback. I
believe there are two guitars, with Eric on lead and Courtney playing rhythm. It sounds like
Courtney might be playing a lot of these as power chords underneath Erlandson, but
ultimately there's so much distortion (combined with the less than stellar recording quality)
that it doesn't really matter either way. I've tabbed the open chords and barre chords 
throughout the song, and left tabs of the power chords at the bottom in case you want
those. Hole
did this song live once at the Whiskey A Go Go in 1991 (this recording), and Courtney
vowed to never do it again after Kurt walked in the door in the middle of their performance.
