This is yet another simple btab by the power house NIRVANA!

Song: Drain You (track 8)
CD: Nevermind
Band: Nirvana
Bassist: Chris Novoselic

Verse Part:

G ---------------------------|   The bass comes in after, "lucky to met me"
D ---------------------------|   Played over and over for all verses.
A -2-2/6-6-6-6-----4-4-4-4---|   <-----------------------------------

After, "and end up in your affection" or what ever that line is play:

G --------- Play this before chorus G ----------------------------------|
D --------- <-----------------------D ----------------------------------|
A -2-2-2-0- Play this three times:  A -----------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|
E --------- (chorus)--------------> E -0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------------------|

On the fourth time play:

G ----------------------------------------------------|
D ----------------------------------------------------|
A -----------------3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2--------------------|
E -0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-----------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|
Play that whole sequence again for the second verse and chorus.
Then after the chorus play this over and over again:

E -3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|

Play this and slam the string every time the guitar comes in real thrashy.

Play the third fret until they break into the verse part again.
Play the first four sequences again and bam...you've mastered Drain You.

Tabbed By : RYAN :)
