I know.. this isn't a 100% how it goes

Thank You===========
     Artist: Staind
     Song:Its Been awhile
     Album:Break The Cycle        Intro
        G-----------------------
        D-----------------------
        A-22-----44-------------
        E----22------44---------


        Verse
        G-----------------------
        D-----------------------
        A--------2-2-------4-4--
        E-4-444------2-222------

         (the verse is all about timing)


        Chorus
        G------------------------
        D------------------------ 
        A--------222--44424------
        E-44-2-4-----------------
   

        The end of the song is the same as the intro and the bridge 
        in the middle of the song. But if you have heard it before you 
        should learn the song in about ten minutes. Its easy.


        If you have any corrections E-mail me at rlcj@bellsouth.net
