--STAIND - THE BOTTOM--

This is, in my opinion, Staind's best song, from their best album. It was written on a
baritone guitar, and is played live on a 7-string, but this tab is for a standard
6-string for the rest of us.

Intro (dist.)               4x
     E E q Q E E   q Q Q.  E
Eb|--------------|------------|
Bb|O-------------|-----------O|
Gb|--------------|------------|
Db|--------------|------------|
Ab|O-0-0---x-0-0-|---0-x---0-O|
Db|--0-0---x-0-0-|---0-x---0--|
uppercase = note
lowercase = rest
x = press down hard on the string above the bridge pickup

the Intro riff is played twice with that the second time.

the Pre-Chorus is just the Intro 2x.
