Nirvana - Nevermind Album3 tab

HI! there, my name id Daniel and I've wrote some uncreditted tabs but from
   now on I'll put it, this tab includes every song in the nevermind album
   except " endless, nameless ", all songs were tabbed by me except
   " on a plain " tabbed by jesse, and with a little help of mine. 
   Hope you enjoy it and if there are any corrections or if you have
   any doubts e-mail my friend at "daid@nether.net"  (I don't have a modem). 
   Well I've got nothing else to say, except that:
     Kurt wasn't a hero, he was a legend; and as they say:
     heroes are remembered, but legends never die

"I haven't felt the excitement for so many years, I felt guilt for so many years. I felt guilty beyond words about these things. When we are backstage and the lights go out and the manic roar of the crowd begins, it doesn't affect me. The fact is, I can't fool you, any one of you. It simply isn't fair to you or to me. The worst crime I can think of would be to (trick) people by faking it and pretending as I were having 100% fun" -Kurt Cobain ***************************************************************************** On A Plain By Kyrt Cobain TAB by jesse.scott@baroque.tvk.tsoft.net TUNING: Dropped-D (D A D G B E) ***************************************************************************** Jesse made this one for the unplugged album, so he didn't include the beggining, so I'll put it, and the rest was done by him, so I don't take credit for this one.

One more special Message to go And then I'm done And I can go home I love myself Better than you I know it's wrong So what should I do?
