                             Asking For It by Hole
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Courtney Love's feminist anthem from 1994's 'Live Through This'. There are several 
tabs/chord charts on here, but they have some issues in the sense that they are a little
 bit too broad; in other words, there's a little more going on than just strumming 
open D, A, G and F chords here. In some instances certain notes from these chords a
ren't even played, and there are power chords used as well. Also note that the bass
 is really heavy on this track and the guitar goes from being sparse to prominent i
n areas. There are very clearly two guitars played in the song, and I've tabbed it 
as such (Guitar 1 is presumably Eric, Guitar 2 is Courtney). It is, however, really
 easy to adapt with just one guitar.

Tabbed by: Scott H.

    Every time that I stare into the sun
    Angel dust and my dress just comes undone

    And every time that I stare into the sun

    Do you think you can make me do it again?
