Because it drop d in the bit where kurt sings '...for defense i was nuetered and spayed' and wahtav ya, because its in drop d use the drop d chord shapes for G5 and E5 and F5.

For the chorus try this as a different version of it, i think it sounds beter but im not gunna edit the tab and chage it yet:

D5 C5 C5/G5
-|----------------------------------|
-|----------------------------------|
-|-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7---5-5-5--5-5-5--|
-|-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7---5-5-5--5-5-5--|
-|-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5---3-3-3--3-3-3--|
-|---------------------------4-4-4--|
*

*For this chord shape fret a normal C5/G5 (3355xx) and the get you second finger and fret the 4 on the E string.

Try that out and see what you think.

PLEASE RATE THIS TAB...THANK YOU...
