Since ½ the world can't seem to grasp tabbing this song, i will go to the trouble of 
doing it.

First!

On Nirvana's live performances *AFTER* Mid-1992, they played with their guitars tuned 
down ½ a step. It's not a big deal, but don't start whining about the tuning.

So basically

Tuning: Standard or ½ a step down.


Secondly,

I don't want any complaints, since this tab is *right*, (since it's from the Muddy 
Banks Of The Wishkah tab book:])1000 thousand people would agree. I am a huge Nirvana 
fan, i know my shit.
