RADIO FRIENDLY UNIT SHIFTER
---------------------------

---------------

e o--5--       --0--
B o--5--       --2--
G o--6--   Or  --2--
D o--7--       --2--
A o--7--       --0--
E o--5--       --0--

"Use Just Once And Destroy
 Invasion Of Our Piracy
 Afterbird Of A Nation
 Starve Without Your Skeleton Key"


During chorus:
e o----------------|---------------0-|
B o----------------|---------------0-|
G o------5---4-----|-4-4-4---------0-|
D o--7-7-5---4-5---|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-0-|
A o--7-7-3---2-5---|-2-2-2-4-4-4-4-0-|
E o--5-5-------3---|-------2-2-2-2-0-|
     1   2   3   4   1   2   3   4 ^ 
     A A C   B G     B B B F#  F#  +--let the last 1/8 ring on 0

                    "What is Wrong with me.."

I guess this might be called the bridge:
e o------------------------------------------------------------------
B o------------------------------------------------------------------
G o--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9---------------------------------
D o--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-
A o--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-
E o----------------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-
     C C C C C C C C e e e e e e e e A A A A A A A A G G G G G G G G

     "Hate,          Hate       your enemies.."       

The Rhythms may be different, but it's the right chords.

THE BASS PART   
-------------

Bass_most:   (during the whole song except bridge)
G o---------------------------------
D o---------------------------------
A o-0-0-3---2-------2-2-2-----------
E o-----------3-3-3-------2-2-2-2-0-

Bass_bridge:   (simplified, play some other notes to spice up)
G o-----------------------------------------------------------------
D o-----------------2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---------------------------------
A o-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-
E o-----------------------------------------------------------------


THE DRUM PART
-------------
Snare on every beat, Bass between the snare (all eigth notes)


-------------------------------------
"Radio Friendly Unit Shifter" by Nirvana
tune down 1/2 step  (Eb  Ab  Db  Gb  Bb  Eb)

p = pull off
h = hammer on

the intro is something like this but with some weird effects.  this is the
closest i could get:

---------------11p10h11p10--
--11p10h11p10---------------
-----------------------------
-----------------------------
-----------------------------
-----------------------------

then the main riff:

   B5         F#5              A#5              F5
-------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------
--5--5---------------4---4--4-------------------
--5--5---5----5--5---4---4--4--4--4--4--4---4--
--3--3---5----5--5---2---2--2--4--4--0--2---4--
---------3----3--3--------------2--2--0--2---2--

that last chord (F5) is played out a little longer than the other chords
(listen to the cd for timing).  plus, i'm not sure if that chord in the
middle of F5 is what i have listed or  044xxx, but it shouldn't really
matter.

bridge:

  B5    D#5   G#5   F#5
--------------------
--------------------
--5----9------------
--5----9----7----5--
--3----7----7----5--
------------5----3--

there's a slide between B5 and D#5.  and on the last line of the bridge, only
B5 and D#5 are played.

to even mention the verse is a joke.
