From: Wouter Janssen 

As performed by Nirvana & the Meat Puppets
On 'Nirvana Unplugged in New York'
Written by the Meat Puppets
Transcription by Wouter Janssen (

Tune down a *whole* step to play along with the CD.

NB : This song is actually played with 2 guitars, this transcription is just
for one guitar, however it's rather easy to transform it into the 2-guitar
version. Let one guitar play the chords on the higher strings (G/B/e)
throughout the song and the other should play the tab below. (omitting some
of the strokes on the higher strings, just listen to CD


           E               D              D          C           E

Lyrics (taken from : 

if i had to lose a mile
if i had to touch feelings
i would lose my soul
the way i do

i don't have to think
i only have to do it
the results are always perfect
and that's old news

would you like to hear my voice
sweetened with emotion
invented at your birth?

i can't see the end of me
my whole expanse i cannot see
i formulate infinity
and store it deep inside of me

As this is done totally from memory, I'll see what I can do..

Opening riff 


Followed by E D D C

The rest is also a combination of C, D and E. I bet this has
been really helpful. I'll post it in its glorious fullness and
completeness later this week :-)
