Hey everybody ! I've been trying to play all of the unplugged concert
for a few months now and most of the tabs I found on the internet
were really wrong. As most of you know Mike Mushok uses a baritone guitar
which is like a seven string without the high e string. The problem
is that your normal six string just wont tune down to his tuning (ADADGB),
so I tabbed it out for normal drop-D guitar and I guaratee you my tabs
are 100% accurate, just play along the dvd and you'll see. The way I tabbed
these is by always trying to find a substitute for the note on the low A 
string to recreate the tonality.I also watched the dvd and I'm sure this is 
how they play it. The songs I haven't completely figured out yet are 
"pressure", "It's been Awhile" (which has 3 guitars in it!!!), "cant believe" 
and "fade". I'd really appreciate it if anyone knows how these songs are 
played in the unplugged and helped me. 
Alright, here we go! Enjoy! Notation legend is at the bottom.
