            Heart Shaped Box (acoustic) - Evanescence
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Karleen Heong
Email: heonjo@attglobal.net

Tuning: Drop D tuning   
So: 6th(lowest)=D 5th=A 4th=D 3rd=G 2nd=B 1st(highest)=E

This is the exact version of Heart Shaped Box played on the Going Under 
Single by Evanescence (track 3).It's tabbed for acoustic, like on the 
single. This song was originally written by Nirvana, but I'm tabbing 
the Evanescence version, because I couldn't find it elsewhere, plus it 
sounds good.

End chord

Yep, I've checked it a hundred times and it's as close as possible. 
I think there are snippets of a second guitar playing at the end of 
each chorus and verse, but this tabbed version is for one guitar, and 
I'm sure this is perfect.
