If you want to play live version, transpose all chords except E5 two step up (+2 in Ultimate Guitar).


Note 1: Chords may not perfectly fit with lyrics.
Note 2: Originally it played in D Standard tuning with low D as first chord, so if you want to make it
perfectly sounding, you may want to drop your tuning to DADGBe and play D5(000xxx) instead of E5.

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

E5:      022xxx OR 02xxxx
F#5:     244xxx
B5:      x244xx
G5:      355xxx
Bb5:     x133xx
C5:      x355xx
A5:      x022xx

There is many live variations of this song, you can play it in standard tuning with default chord progression, in standard tuning transposed 2 step up chords, half step down with transposed chords, whole step down..

But really there is no reason for using dropped tuning to play this song "originally", this is just how Kurt played it.

For example, on "From The Muddy Banks Of The Wishkah" song played whole step higher than original studio version.
