The Man Who Sold The World Acoustic Chords - Nirvana

 
The Man Who Sold The World Acoustic Chords
Simple song but first tab so go easy, constructive criticism appreciated, childish abuse
so

Standard tuning, capo on 4th, (or if you don't have one just cut a chopstick in half and 
it down to the fretboard with a shoestring or something)

Just experiment with different strumming patterns, I tried a cheeky
'D-D-U-U-D-U' and it seemed to was listenable. Just make sure you hit the high strings 
the upstrokes.

For an easy little intro on the one string, see the tab below (s=slide, repeat 3 or 4 
and in between verses).

Alternatively, just mess around with E and Am for an intro.

(Nothing played here) E
We passed upon the stair
                     Am
We spoke of was and when
                    E
Although I wasn't there
                      C
He said I was his friend

   C                  G
Which came as a sur-prise
                 E
I spoke into his eyes
                 Am
I thought you died alone
                   G
A long long time a-go

   C
Oh no, not me               (mess around with high e string here if you like)
    F              C
We never lost con-trol
G               C
You're face to face
          F               E
With The Man Who Sold The World                (repeat Intro here)

                       E
I laughed and shook his hand
                      Am
And made my way back home
                        E
I searched for form and land
                       C
For years and years I roamed

                    G
I gazed a gazeless stare
                   E
At all the millions here
                   Am
I must have died a-lone
                    G
A long, long time a-go

     C
Who knows?
   C
Not me
    F             C
We never lost con-trol
        G       C
You're face to face
         F                E
With the Man who Sold the World     Am

Optional; repeat the last bit

About the artist behind The Man Who Sold The World Acoustic Chords:

Nirvana was an American rock band that was formed by singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen, Washington. Nirvana went through a succession of drummers, the longest-lasting being Dave Grohl, who joined the band in 1990.

With the lead single "Smells Like Teen Spirit" from the group's second album Nevermind (1991), Nirvana entered into the mainstream, bringing along with it a subgenre of alternative rock called grunge. Other Seattle grunge bands such as Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden also gained popularity, and, as a result, alternative rock became a dominant genre on radio and music television in the United States during the early-to-middle 1990s. As Nirvana's frontman, Kurt Cobain found himself referred to in the media as the "spokesman of a generation", with Nirvana the "flagship band" of "Generation X".[3] Cobain was uncomfortable with the attention and placed his focus on the band's music, challenging the band's audience with its third studio album In Utero (1993).

Nirvana's brief run ended with Cobain's death in April 1994, but the band's popularity continued in the years that followed. More than eight years later, "You Know You're Right", an unfinished demo from the band's final recording session, topped radio playlists around the world. Since their debut, the band has sold over fifty million albums worldwide.[4] Nirvana are often credited with being one of the most popular and important rock bands of recent years.[5]
