About this tab version
This is the first tab version and it covers all of the song. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Chris Cornell - 'Worried Moon'
From the album 'Higher Truth'
Tabbed by: jjhand
Tuning: Drop D

Great song with alternating fingerpicked and strummed sections. Chris picks the low strings with 
his thumb and uses his fingers for the G, B and e strings and occasionally the D string during A chords. 
Please rate or comment.

 "Nervous moon, In the clouds
 There's a halo around your proud face
 and I'm glad that we're friends
 I might see you again
 sooner or later I guess"

"Yeah if it all goes wrong
 and I'm a heart without a home
 Maybe you can talk me out
 of doing myself in"
