Nirvana - About a Girl,
by Kurt Cobain

this is one of my favourite nirvana songs and i'm sick of seeing bad tabs for it;/
if you listen to the song and match the chords i swear you'll find this is right
although it may not at first glace LOOK  right, but it is;

Intro/Verse/Outro

|-----0-------2-| 
|-----0-------2-|
|-----0-------0-|   
|-2-2---0-0-0---|   X as many times as you need throughout the verse
|-2-2---2-2-2---|
|-0-0---3-3-3---|
                    before
Chorus           going into verse
                   |     |
|------------------|-----|       |------------------------|
|------------------|-----|       |------------------------| then back
|-6-6--------------|-----|       |-----9-9-9-------5--5-5-| to verse
|-6-6-6-6--4-4-X-4-|-4-4-| X 2   |-2-2-9-9-9-7-7-X-5--5-5-|  chords
|-4-4-6-6--4-4-X-4-|-4-4-|       |-2-2-7-7-7-7-7-X-3--3-3-|   
|-----4-4--2-2-X-2-|-2-2-|       |-0-0-------5-5-X--------|    

Solo

|-----------------------------|
|-----------------------------|
|-----------------9--------12-| 
|-------5-7-7-9-9-9-/12-12-12-|  X 4  then back to chorus chords
|---5-7-----------------------|        as you would after a verse

ok...if you listen carefully to the song, he does little upstrokes on the high e and B....so I usually play it like this
e---0------3-3-3
B---0------3-3-3
G---------------
D-2--2-0-0------
A-2--2-2-2------
E-0--0-3-3------
and you've gotta put it a half step down so that everything is flat....when you do that, you've got a great song..great tabbed out solo by the way
and another thing....when he plays the chorus..he plays the 466 three times, then the third time he lets off the 4 so it's 066..and he plays the 799 on
EAD...and yet another thing...he plays the second part of the chorus 355 (EAD) then 355 (ADG)..but otherwise,besides those changes, great song!
