                Something In The Way (Acoustic) - Nirvana
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

FAIR WARNING!!! This is my first tab (I don't think I really did anything wrong though). 
I believe this is 99% correct of the acoustic version of this amazing song. It is very 
easy to learn and fun to play. Enjoy!!!

Tuning: Drop D

Main riff: (Intro: Play twice. Verses: play 7 times.)

Pre-chorus:

E|-4--4-4---4-4-4-0--0-0---0-0-0-4--4-4---4-4-4-0-------------------------|

After that, play through the verse again, then:

Chorus: Play 7x

E|-4--4-4---4-4-4-0--0-0---0-0-0-4--4-4---4-4-4-0--0-0---0-0-0------------|

Chorus cont.

   v  v ^   ^ v ^ v  v ^   ^ v ^ v  v ^   ^ V ^ v
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------3--3-3---3-3-3------------------------------------------|
G|-6--6-6---6-6-6-2--2-2---2-2-2-6--6-6---6-6-6-2-------------------------|
D|-4--4-4---4-4-4-0--0-0---0-0-0-4--4-4---4-4-4-0-------------------------|
A|-4--4-4---4-4-4-0--0-0---0-0-0-4--4-4---4-4-4-0-------------------------|
E|-4--4-4---4-4-4-0--0-0---0-0-0-4--4-4---4-4-4-0-------------------------|

Thats it!

P.S. There's an alternate, slightly simpler way to play the chorus, if you wish:

Chorus:

   v  v ^   ^ v ^ v  v ^   ^ v ^ v  v ^   ^ v ^ v  v ^   ^ v ^
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-6--6-6---6-6-6-7--7-7---7-7-7-6--6-6---6-6-6-2--2-2---2-2-2------------|
D|-4--4-4---4-4-4-5--5-5---5-5-5-4--4-4---4-4-4-0--0-0---0-0-0------------|
A|-4--4-4---4-4-4-5--5-5---5-5-5-4--4-4---4-4-4-0--0-0---0-0-0------------|
E|-4--4-4---4-4-4----------------4--4-4---4-4-4-0--0-0---0-0-0------------|

Note that the only real difference is the second chord in the chorus. It sounds similar 
to the original, but not exact. Once again, ENJOY!

Lyrics:

Verses:

Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak
And all the animals that I've trapped
Have all become my pets
And their living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
Its ok to eat fish
Because they don't have any feelings

Chorus: (1st chorus: 3x. 2nd chorus: 4x.)

Something in the way. Mmmm.
Something in the way, yeah. Mmmm.
