Nirvana - With The Lights Out Disc 1 tab

This is a fairly complete tab of the first disc of "WITH THE LIGHTS OUT", the new
Nirvana Box Set. I did not include the lyrics or solos because most tracks are live
and its hard to hear. I did not tab a chord being played more than three times, so
if its over that you have to figure out the strums yourself.Ill do next disc soon.
Anyway, enjoy and RIP Kurdt Kobain (Kurt Cobain).

3.White Lace And Strange ->Now comes the time to tell you about my Eb tuning tabs. Well, what I do to put my Epiphone Les Paul a step down is this: I just lower the low E string one half step. That way it doesn't screw up all the other strings so this tab is in that tuning. It will take some getting used to, but it eventually becomes the same, or even easier to play chords this way.
