                I've been trying to decide whether this is tuned flat or D tuned, but, since 
tuning to D is easier and sounds just as good, I'll tab that.
Intro:
e------
B------
G------
D-2---0
A-2-0-0
D-2---0  This does not represent the strumming, it is a loose evaluation 
of the chords.

You can continue playing that or drop the open A and just play the 
chords, I do the latter and it sounds just as good as throwing in the A, 
especially once you throw the distortion in.

All the while, the bass is playing:
G---------------------
D---------------------
A---------------------
D-2--2-2-0-2-2-2-2-0-0
This could be the same pattern that is used with the guitar for the 
verses, except playing the whole chord or pieces of the 5th chord
depending on your personal preference.  
The "Bridge" is:
e--------------------------------
B--------------------------------
G-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7
D-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7
A-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5
D--------------------------------  Again, the strumming is not accurate, 
but listen to the song and it will be pretty clear what you need to play.

Kurt, as he always does with unreleased songs, played around on the solo, 
and I would suggest doing the same, just screw around.

Anyway, have fun with this, it's a great song, probably Kurt's last, and 
maybe even one of his best, even though it's simple.  Later.

 I am mutability
 A thousand monkeys at a thousand typewriters
 I am absurdity
 I am futility
 An ageless Hope in a hopeless Age"
