I guess that since the song's not widely released I should have been more thorough and specific, but y'all will hear it soon and know how it goes. And you know how I hate to tab out all those rhythm strumms (ie. the end riff)...sorry.
okay this is how i figured out how to play what be the bst pumkins song out there so it goes like this
all guitaras tuned in Eflat
he says "THe world is a vampire" g-------------------- d-------------------- a2-2-0-2---------- e----------3-0------
do that about 6 times then you go
g------ d------- a------- e0-3-3
then the chorus ("dispite all my rage...)
g--------------------------- d---------------------------- a2-2-0-----5-55---------- e-------3-33-----555-0-3
repeat first part then second time on chorus
g---------------------------------------- d----------------------------------------- a2-2-0------5-55---------------------- e-------3-33------555-000-3-333-5
and the bridge goes like so
g-------------- d--------------- a-----2-------5 e333---555--
and you end it on the chorus but on the last note it's a 2 on the e string like so
g----------------------------- d---------------------------- a2-20------5-55- e------3-33------5-55--3-2
that's it tabbed by Jon Roop any comments, questions, or corrections just e-mail me I also know a hell of alot of Nirvana if you want them posted just mail me too
