Smells Like Teen Spirit,    by Nirvana


This is how I play the song. I make no guarantees as to its accuracy.
For those interested, a good way to get the Nirvana "Grunge" sound is
just to use very heavy metal distortion plus very thick chorus.

Key:
     p - pull off from previous note
     s - slide to 
     b - bend (or unbend) note until it sounds like the next one
     x - strike strings muted lightly w/left hand 


Main line:                                        Riff:     
 2x w/o distortion.                                repeat as   
 4x with distortion + chorus)                      desired. . .

Lyrics:
-------
Load up on guns, bring your friends      
It's fun to lose, and to pretend          
She's overboard, myself assured
I know I know, A dirty word

	chorus:

	hello, hello, hello, hello. . .hello, hello, hello, hello,
	hello, hello, hello, hello. . .hello, hello, hello, hello

	With the lights out it's less dangerous
	Here we are now, entertain us
	I feel stupid and contagious
	Here we are now, entertain us.
	A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido, Yea!

I'm worse at what I do best,        
and for this gift I feel blessed.   
I met a group that's always been    
And always will until the end.      

	chorus, solo

And I forget, just what the taste    
And yes I guess it makes me smile    
I found it hard. . .Its hard to find 
Oh well, whatever, nevermind

	chorus.

Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana

Transcribed by Tim Davis (davist@cs.man.ac.uk) from the album "Nevermind".

Here's the entire song with lyrics et al.

   To get the Nirvana sound use very heavy metal distortion plus very thick
chorus with the pickup selector in the bridge (farthest back) position.

Key:
     ~ - vibrato
     \ - slide down
     b - bend note until it sounds like the bracketed one
     r - release previous bend to bracketed note
     x - play strings while muted lightly with left hand

     |--     --|  repeat section between the markers.
     |*-     -*|  ie. play it twice

By Nirvana

Transcribed(Decoded[Worked Out]) by James Hunt
Well, this is how I do it, it sound okay.


B:--------8--10~~----8/10----6--5--6--5------------------------
G:----10-----------6---------------------------8--6--8--10^\8--6-

Just play that twice then do this:
G:---6--5--6--5--6--5--6--5-5--3-

That's done thrice then do this variation:
G:---6--5--6--5--6--5--6--5-5--3~~~~~~~~~~
(just let it ring for a while)
