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
