Laid  James


(Let me throw in a quickie request for tab to 'five-o' and 'heavens' by james
and nirvana's 'lounge act' to anybody who might just know a place to start....)
Hiya. I've just heard a live nonplugged version of 'laid' (off the 'say
something' cd single) and here's my best guess....
Chord Formations: (Wow, only THREE chords!)
C (x 3 2 0 1 0) C/F (x 3 3 0 1 0)
G (3 2 0 0 3 3)
(Plugless version)
[C] [C/F] [C] [G]  
 --------------------0----0--| < Label this the Main riff

00000-00000--00000-00000-| < Label this the Chorus riff

INTRO: Main riff three times, then Chorus riff once.
Same for verses, main riff 3 times, then chorus:
