SONG:   BETTERMAN
ARTIST: Pearl Jam
TAB BY: Neil Smith (nj2_smit@uwe.ac.uk)

Main Riff:


                                            This note is played
                                          in the intro, but I'm
                                       not sure about the verse.
                                                             vvv

                              This note is not played in the
                              intro, but is present when Vedder
                              is singing the verses.

Bridge: (He opens the door ...)

The second time (or on the live version) you may want to strum those
chords, thus:

F/A      G/B
-5--------7-
-6--------8-
-5--------7-
-7--------9-
-8-------10-
-5--------7-Chorus: (If my chord names are wrong, sorry, I never did theory) :-(

(This part given double time so I can fit some lyrics in)

And everything else is just a repeat of those bits, I think.

Hope that's OK. Cheers ...

The chords' names are precise. those chords are barre forms of a simple Cmajor chord with the 6th string ( = C/E).

Overall, it's a nice tab...
