Its Been Awhile Tab

   
Artist: Staind
Song: It's been awhile
Tabbed by: Justin Holton
 
I've also sent this off to olga.net, so it may look familiar.
For the electric part the guitar is in Dropped Db, but 
the acoustic is in Standard Eb tuning. (NOTE: Since we
tune down I'll refer to a chord by its tonality. This 
means while you'll be fingering a "C" chord, it will 
actually sound out as "B".) I have two different sections;
Section 1 is for someone who wants to do an acoustic version,
Section 2 is for a band who plans on playing the electric
version.
