Something in the Way (Drop C)

Animated Something in the Way (Drop C) tab by Nirvana on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is a very easy song to play on guitar. Just 3 chords are used in the whole song: E5 -- C5 -- G sus4 (no 5) and just 1 finger! However the tuning isn't standard. It is in Drop C tuning:

Low C:G:C:F:A:D

This may be awkward for beginners, so we've made another version of this song in Drop D tuning. It is played exactly the same, but only 1 string needs to be adjusted rather than all 6. To play that version instead click here.

Although the chords are easy, you may like to thumb-mute / mute unwanted strings in case of overstrums.
