    these r the chords of this amazing and awesome song...

    E
    A ( barred on 5)
    G (barred on 3)
    C (barred on 8)

    this pattern goes on for the intro and chorus of song

    just strum the EADGstrings {it sounds better}(string no. 6 5 4 3)

    i noticed you only posted part, so here is the entire tab FYI. note that Kurt plays this song a few different ways, so there are a few different tabs, but they may still be correct.

    the formatting may be a little off at some parts.

    Cool song but I think the original was played on detuned guitars, so the chords that u have given might not match wiht the studio version.
     
  15. anshphenomenon

    anshphenomenon Rape me :boff:

    yes
    exactly..
    its not the scale which cobain plays in the video..
    its actually the pearl jam cover....they used the chords i have mentioned..
    and they sound good on an acoustic guitar...
