Nirvana — Something in the Way (ver 3) bass tabs

(submitted by LoudLon)
Song: Something in the Way
Artist: Nirvana
Album: Nevermind (1991)
Tabbed by LoudLon for Big BassTabs.com

TUNING NOTE: I see all kinds of online tabs and youtube videos for this song
showing basses tuned down two full steps to C but even then the tone is still
slightly off. If you really want to play this one accurately, tune your bass
UP to where it's midway between standard E and F. To ensure the tone is right,
first tune your 4th string up slightly; when you hold it on the 5th fret, it
should sound like a sour sharp compared to the open 3rd string; hold it on the
4th fret and it should sound like a sour flat compared to the open 3rd string.
After you've got the tone right on the 4th string, tune your 3rd string
accordingly (don't worry about tuning the 1st and 2nd strings; this song
doesn't use them). While the tab below shows EADG, it is indeed tabbed for
this slightly altered tuning.

PERFORMANCE NOTE: There is no bass during the verses, only the choruses.
I only included verse staffs in order to help you keep track with the timing.
