Stupidity Tries  Elliott Smith

-the arrangement on the recording is huge, so the instrumental parts (while not 'wrong')
a lot to the imagination
- chord names in parentheses are passing chords which are really short in duration. The
in the chorus just follows the melody, so the bass note is likely all you need.
The somewhat complicated chords:
 e--4-- --2-- --2--|
 b--2-- --2-- --2--|
 g--2-- --3-- --2--|
 d--2-- --2-- --4--|
 a--x-- --x-- --2--|
 E--0-- --0-- -----|
