Complete guitar tablature for PRETTY ON THE INSIDE (1991 album) by Hole

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Scott H. (youshotandywarhol@yahoo.com)

Notes:
This album is fairly easy to play and is mostly power chords, but there is a lot going
on in the songs and a lot of it is difficult to replicate, especially if you're playing
with only one guitar. Regardless, these tabs are as accurate as I can get them, and are
based off of what I know/how I've seen these played. I didn't map out each song entirely,
but I applied the riffs according to the parts in which they are played; you can listen
to the album to figure out timing and whatnot, but everything is tabbed and noted with
lyrics and snippets of verses. Also remember that every song more or less is played with 
heavy distortion and lots of feedback, so feel free to get messy with it. This was as 
punk rock
as Hole ever was, so let the noise begin.


Key:
"/" = slide up
"\" = slide down
"b" = string bend
"x" = string mute


Tracks:
1) Teenage Whore
2) Babydoll
3) Garbadge Man
4) Sassy
5) Good Sister/Bad Sister
6) Mrs. Jones
7) Berry
8) Loaded
9) Starbelly
10) Pretty on the Inside
11) Clouds
