Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Artist: Nirvana
Song: Lake of Fire
Album: MTV Unplugged in New York

This song is actually a cover of a song by the Meat Puppets, but I've tabbed it 
the way Nirvana plays it on their Unplugged album. Listen to the song to get the 
the strum pattern.

[INTRO/VERSE] (ALL CHORDS BARRED)

G  F Bb  G  C Bb  G  F Bb  C  F Bb G 


[Chorus]

G                  F            Bb
Where do bad folks go when they die?
G                                 C      Bb
They dont go to heaven where the angels fly
G                           F        Bb
They go down to the lake of fire and fry
C                             F       Bb G      
Wont see them again till the fourth of July


[Verse]

Dm                Bb*
I knew a lady who came from Duluth
Dm                          A
She got bit by a dog with a rabid tooth
Dm                           Bb*
She went to her grave just a little too soon
C*                               Dm*
And she flew away howling on the yellow moon


[Chorus]

G                  F            Bb
Where do bad folks go when they die?
G                                 C      Bb
They dont go to heaven where the angels fly
G                           F        Bb
They go down to the lake of fire and fry
C                             F       Bb G      
Wont see them again till the fourth of July


[Bridge] (Same chords as chorus/bridge)

Now the people cry and the people moan
They look for a dry place to call their home
And try to find some place to rest their bones
While the angels and the devils
Fight to claim them for their own

Repeat first verse again and then brief solo with same chords as intro/verse, then 
you're finished!

*Barred

Not sure you get the meaning of "Chorus" and "Verse". The bit you labelled "Verse" is in face the chorus, and vice-versa, the idea of a chorus being the repetition.

Buuuuut discounting that, good job. Played with power chords instead of triads, it sounds great too :)

I believe the tuning is down half a step.
