Artist: Staind

Song: It's been awhile

Tabbed by: Justin Holton (method36man@hotmail.com)

 

***This is the updated version of this song***

 

For the electric part the guitar is in Dropped Db, but=20

the acoustic is in Standard Eb tuning. (NOTE: Since we

tune down I'll refer to a chord by its tonality. This=20

means while you'll be fingering a "C" chord, it will=20

actually sound out as "B".) I have two different sections;

Section 1 is for someone who wants to an acoustic version,

Section 2 is for a band who plans on playing the electric

version.

 

**SECTION 1**

(standard Eb tuning, strum the chorus and bridge)=20
