Hi, I was just screwing around with my guitar and I came up with an 
alternate intro to blind melon's "no rain" that's not in the archive.  
This one's a little more full and folky, if you like that sort of thing.  
Also, this is the first time I've tried to write in rhythm.  bear with 
me here.  The measures are kind of accurate; the spacing of the notes 

kapo the scond fret. Notation is relative to the kapo (a 3 is really a 5 
and such...)

        Cmaj        Dmaj                  Cmaj    
|-0--------------|---------3---2--|-0--------------| repeat one more
|---3---1----3-1-|--3----3--------|---3---1----3-1-| time (the rhythm
|-----2----------|-----2----------|-----2----------| is practically
|-0--------2-----|--0------2-2----|-0--------2-----| immortal) & then 
|-------3------3-|----------------|-------3------3-| your guess is as 
|----------------|----------------|----------------| good as mine. Try
                                                     something based 
                                                     on the other tabs
                                                     posted  here!

The the verses and solo are pretty easy.  Just play what the others have 
modified for a kapo (instead of E major play D major and such...)
