Big long now


Big Long Now (by Kurdt Kobain)
This depressing song is off of -Incesticide-. I think it was cutely and perfectly written not just for simplicity but for the feel of it. I do not know. The verse riff is:
E --------------- B --------------- G -------------0- this is played over and over again. The unopen strings D -----0--------- are played palm muted while the open string are played A ---8---8---8--- normally. E -9-------9-----
The song goes:
(Riff) It~s not cold enough Please put his side up She is moon gray
Bb5 A5 G#5 (Riff) Can we show our faces now
I~m not in a string She~s not turning gray Simple as it seems
Bb5 A5 G#5 (Riff) Can we show our faces now
D5 C#5 Endless climb! D5 C#5 G5 I am blind D5 C#5 Why canUy I eat D5 C#5 G5 Call a lie D5 C#5 Speaking a phrase D5 C#5 G5 Instantly grown D5 C#5 Lord I~m blind
D5 C#5 G5 F#5 F5 F5 Waiting in line
This continues on for another verse and chorus and that is basically the whole song.
The chords are:
E A D G B E ----------- Bb5 6 8 8 x x x A5 5 7 7 x x x G#5 4 6 6 x x x D5 x 5 7 7 x x C#5 x 4 6 6 x x G5 3 5 5 x x x F#5 2 4 4 x x x F5 1 3 3 x x x

Title : Big Long Now Artist : Nirvana
This was pretty simple to work out, the main riff only uses four notes.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| -------------------------------------------------------------------0----------------------------| -----------------------0------------------------------------------------------------------------| ------------9-------------------9------------------9--------------------9-------------------- | -----7-----------------------------------7-----------------------------------------------------|
Listen to the recording and work out the timing.
For the chorus it's B barred at the 7th fret to E also barred at the 7th fret.
If anyone can work out the words to this PLEASE can you email them to me on
A quick word :
I have seen people trying to sell T Shirts with pictures of Kurts dead body on it. I don't know if suicide is justified but making money out of it certainly IS NOT so please don't.
