Subject: complete come as you are nirvana tab


Come as you are
On Nevermind and Unplugged in NY
Written by Kurt cobain and Nirvana

After seeing how much all the other tabs on this                   
file SUCK or are incomplete makes me XXXXing        
mad!!! So I posted the 2nd best version only to 
what Cobain, Novoselic, and Grohl wrote. I have
took the song apart into intro, verse1, verse2, 
pre-chorus, verse3, chorus, solo, pre-chorus,
chorus and, outro. I have it tabbed for 2 guitars,
1 bass guitar, and 1 lead singer (Unplugged in 
NY version) but for you idiots not in bands, at
the end of each section I'll tab it all out for 
1 guitar, 1 bass, and 1 lead singer(Nevermind 
version) but you can mix it up like 1 acoustic 
or 2 electrics. Whatever? Well I'll just stop 
boring you and get on with some Nirvana tab.

Lyrics: 
I took the verse apart
by measures so you 
can get rhythm

    Come as you are
    As you were
    As I want
    You to be
    As a friend
    As a friend
    As an old

Lyrics:

    Take your time
    Hurry up 
    The choice is yours                                               
            Don't be late
    Take a rest
    As a friend
    As an old 

                         

                                Pre-chorus


_________________________________________________                     
         
I used bar breaks to determine measures, 
measures are the same for both guitars.
0n Unplugged in NY Kurt tends to strum
mostly on the 4 lowest strings.
In the pre-chorus Cobain plays the chords
and I think it's Pat Smear???

Well, thats it.

I will soon post H00 U R by PJ
I'm still looking for the intro it's
not 100% correct yet so any help
will be appreciated. I also want
Rage Against the Machine:
Bulls on Parade and any STP,
send Ryan Krause (me) the tabs at
FMPV97C@prodigy.com , your
reward H00 U R and more PJ
and Nirvana tabs. 

THANX a bunch and be nice,
there is 5.6 billion other people 
who could kick your ass.
