Playing Your Song
Hole - Celebrity Skin

Chords: (Std Tuning)

    C#   A    D    G#
e: -9-- -5-- -10- -4--  
B: -9-- -5-- -10- -4-- 
G: -10- -6-- -11- -5-- -+
D: -11- -7-- -12- -6--  |- most of song played on these strings
A: -11- -7-- -12- -6--  |- can even use power E's and omit G string
E: -9-- -5-- -10- -4-- -+

Notes: Since I got no response from my original post, I've decided to ditch the capo and go with
bar chords, in hopes of hitting a different audience (rockers). With male vocals, I find 
playing this a step or 2 down sounds better to me. Since these are all E-form bars, you can 
easily play around with them to fit your style (ie, same formations, just move down a fret). 
Oh yeah, and pretty much slide between all chords!

Riff:
   C#               A
e:----------------|-----5----------|
B:-----9----------|---------5------|
G:---------10-----|---6-------6----|
D:---11--------11b|-------------7br|
A:----------------|----------------|
E:-9--------------|-5--------------| 
   1 . 2 . 3 . 4 .  1 . 2 . 3 . 4 .

Alt Riff: (I find this a little high pitch/gay for me. The song is also really fast, so I
often play this. Basically, you can pick/strum anything in C# and A that goes low, mid, high,
mid and it sounds good)
   C#               A
e:----------------|----------------|
B:----------------|----------------|
G:---------10-----|---------6------|
D:-----11------11b|-----7-----7-7b-| (note: can also slide the bends up a
A:-------------11b|-------------7b-|        fret and quickly back)
E:-9-9------------|-5-5------------| 
   1 . 2 . 3 . 4 .  1 . 2 . 3 . 4 .

(Tempo is fast: guessing 160 bpm+ = 88 of 100 on my RP80's drum machine)
