Come As You Are
=============== This is a very simple song, and this
should get you started. I'm not sure
 
 ------------------------------- about the chords during the chorus, but
 ------------------------------- this riff is palyed during most of
 ------------------------------- the verses.

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

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???
