About A Girl(unplugged) by Nirvana

100% sure this is right

Info on Power Chords:
Ok, before you start complaing about how it's supposed to be played(the chorus,
that is), please keep in mind that I HAVE seen MTV Unplugged and I do know how he
plays. He plays strings 6 and 5 with his index finger(bar-chordish), and uses his
ring finger(after your middle finger) to play strings 4-2. So keep that in mind
and start playing! Kurt lives in us all.

Strumming:
Down down down up down up down (or just use your own pattern)

Tuning:
Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb
1/2 step down

Voicings:

E5    022x00
Em    022000 (or E5, use what you prefer)
G     320033
G     355433 (near the end)
C#5   x4666x
G#/C# 44666x
B5    22444x

E5  G   E5    G 
I need an easy friend
E5      G      E5    G
I do... with an ear(or hand?) to lend

I do... think you fit this shoe
E5      G        E5    G
I do... but you have a clue

[Chorus]
C#5    G#/C#       B5
I'll take advantage while
C#5     G#/C#      B5
You hang me out to dry

But I can't see you every night

I do... hope you have the time
E5      G    E5     G
I do... pick a number too
E5      G      E5     G
I do... keep a date with you

[Chorus]
C#5    G#/C#      B5
I'll take advantage while
C#5     G#/C#       B5
You hang me out to dry
C#5      G#/C#        B5     
But I can't see you every night
E5 G
Free...
