Ok, this is a good tab and everything... but I played this song in drop-D as per the other tab, except I tuned my guitar up 1/4 step and it sounded in-line with the song. I tried to play along with the recording and the proper intervals didn't seem to fall in line either with the singing or the actual guitar parts. Maybe I'm wrong, but that's what it sounded like. Also I think D-tuning is more suitable, but it could b just me...

it's me again, after I re-checked everything for about 50th time, and I think I've made my point - drop D either 1/4 step sharp (at least for the video clip) or maybe not - but the song is definitely in drop D. I'm pretty sure about the sharp bit cuz other songs on the same tape sound out compared to Black Hole Sun. The way this tab shows, the chords will not sound right - most likely sharper than they should, I've tried that and it was wrong. So tryy it and re-tab if need be.
