Blind Melon
Skinned (song 4 off "Soup")



The rhythm is like:  

V           V           V             V
One and-uh, Two and-uh, Three and-uh, Four and-uh

The roots of the chords are played on the hard beats, except for the
Emin where the B note is played instead of the low E

I play it like:

    C
E-----------------|
B---------1---1---|
G---------0---0---|
D---------2---2---|
A---3-------------|
E-----------------|
    One   and-uh
    down  down-up

There is a chord towards the end I called C** which I don't know the
name of but the fingerings are:

   C**   G   Emin  E7   Amin  C

E  N     3   N     N    N     N
B  1     3   0     3    1     1
G  0     0   0     1    2     0
D  0     0   2     2    2     2
A  2     2   2     2    0     3
E  N     3   N     0    N     N


The C** is the chord that is commonly used for transferrring a C chord
to the Amin chord.  So play whatever you normally would for doing that.
