Rape Me (acoustic) Tab

   
Band: Nirvana
Song: Rape Me (Solo Acoustic, 1992)
Album: With the Lights Out (Box Set) 2004

I've gotten so many bad tabs off the internet, and wasted a lot of time finding out that it's bad.
Kurt was one of my favorite song writers, this song is raw kurt, getting it done.  He thought 
of music as an expression, the words were not always a priority to him, in my humble opinion 
he was creating a piece of art for people to enjoy for all time.  Here is my best attempt to 
capture his raw natural talent; voice, guitar, and thankfully a tape recorder...it's timeless...
