Version 2 from OLGA.net
Artist: Staind
Song: It's been awhile
Tabbed by: Justin Holton (method36man@hotmail.com)
***This is the updated version of this song***
For the electric part the guitar is in Dropped Db, but=20
the acoustic is in Standard Eb tuning. (NOTE: Since we
tune down I'll refer to a chord by its tonality. This=20
means while you'll be fingering a "C" chord, it will=20
actually sound out as "B".) I have two different sections;
Section 1 is for someone who wants to an acoustic version,
Section 2 is for a band who plans on playing the electric
version.
**SECTION 1**
(standard Eb tuning, strum the chorus and bridge)=20
INTRO/VERSES: (Let ring throughout)
G#sus4 B =20
