Pearl Jam – Nothingman tab
Nothingman (Easy Acoustic Version) Pearl Jam Tuning: Whole step down EADGBE -> DGCFAD (1/2 step down works too but is less accurate) Transposes: G = 320033, Em = 022000, D = x00232, C = x32010 I've tried to indicate an important chord transition between C and Em, that should be exaggerated, with > symbols.
