Jane Says Acoustic

Jane's Addiction

Jane Says with Solo (Acoustic Version from Unplugged)
Main riff played throughout song:
Guitar 1:
G 320033
A 002220
Guitar one can also add the folling pick-off at the end of the riff to spice it up a bit:
E --3-3---0-0----------------| B --2-2---0-0----------------| G --0-0---2-2--2p0-----------| D --0-0---2-2------2p0-------| A --3-3---2-2----------0-----| G --3-3---0-0----------------|
Guitar 2 also plays the same riff over guitar 1 throughout song until solo, but the G and A chords are played as barred chords and with a slight twist:
G G A A ? ? ? ? E --3-3---5-5--7-5--5-5----------------| B --3-3---5-5--5-5--7-5----------------| G --4-4---6-6--6-6--6-6----------------| D --5-5---7-7--5-5--5-5----------------| A --5-5---7-7--7-7--7-7----------------| E --3-3---5-5--5-5--5-5----------------|
? and ? above are just modified A chords. They are played by moving your pinkey from the 3rd string (D) to the top E and B strings (notice bottom E A D G strings don't change.) It may look complicated but is very easy once you see what the hell I'm talking about. When I strum the chords played by guitar 2, I strum normally (from low E to high E) for the first fourchords. For second set of 4 chords, you kind of strum back and forth, alternating from high E to low E, and visa versa. Just jack around with the srum pattern till it sounds cool.
Chorus (Repeat phrase below)
G G? E --3--3--| B --3--2--| G --0--0--| D --0--0--| A --2--2--| E --3--3--|
Solo (Guitar 2 Solos while Guitar 1 contines main riff.)

This song has to be the all time best 2-chord jam in history. It totally rocks and anybody can play it cause it's just G and A. You just gotta find a weird dude to be able to sing it right.
