"About a Girl"
Bleach (SP34a)

-------------------------------------------------

This is a close approximation of the way I play Nirvana's
"About a Girl", which is a close approximation of how
Nirvana plays it on their Bleach album.

The chords are generally 5's (i.e., no 3rd),
not minor or major, except for the open G in the verse
(but even that omits the 3rd usually played on the
5th string and has only the 3rd on the 2nd string).

The chords played during the chorus are "power chords"
in the true sense on the phrase. In the second measure
(during "...vantage while."), note that the F#5 is
strummed twice and then the strings are muffled with the
palm of the picking hand on the second count, during
which time there is feedback. This is cool.

There are two different forms of the E5 chord played one
after the other in the chorus (during "I can't see you").
First is the "open" E5 (022xxx). He then slides up to the
alternate E5' at the 7th fret (x799xx). This is really cool.
I play the A5 at the 5th fret (577xxx). This is what it
sounds like to me on the album, although I know Kurt seems
to play an open A (x022xx) often, so it may be that way
instead. Also, I think it's easier to play (577xxx).

This stuff can all be heard clearly after the lead, when
there's no singing over top of it.

The first note in the lead is an open E (6th string) held
for a full count. There are two slides-up. The first slide,
from 7 to 9, is "slow"; play the 7, but don't slide up to
9 until the next beat. The second slide, from 9 up to 12,
is "fast"; play the 9 and slide up to the 12 right away
during that beat. On the next beat, play the 12 on the
3rd string (letting both notes ring). Play 12 on 4th string
and 12 on 3rd string again, letting them ring, and then
slide both notes down on the last up-beat in the measure.

Just before the lead starts, he turns up the distortion, and
seemingly leaves it up during the remainder of the song.

I lifted the lyrics from some other messages posted
to A.G.T. They're the best I can do; I never could
understand what Kurt was saying!

ANY CORRECTIONS OR COMMENTS WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
Thank you and have fun.

From: psalzman@sfsuvax1.sfsu.edu (Peter Salzman)
Subject: CRD: About A Girl

If someone emails me the lyrics, I'll turn this into a really nice TAB
(instead of a spartan CRD).  I don't want to offend anyone, but I can't
imagine this taking someone more than 2 min to strumm out, unless they
don't have the album I guess.  Oh well.  Have no clue to the lyrics,
sorry.   There doesn't seem to be any chorus.

Song: About A Girl
Artist: Nirvana    written by Kurt Cobain
CRD'er: Peter Jay Salzman psalzman@stars.sfsu.edu

This loop is done 4 times, then the E-G thing back and forth 8 times
while he sings (what I think is) Adieu.  The drum queues apply only to
the first time the loop is played.  Guitar solo is done during the 3rd
loop, on the 2nd E-G thing, for the rest of the loop.  I'll transcribe
the guitar solo on the tab if someone sends me the lyrics, but the solo
is based on the Em scale for the E-G thing and then goes into power chords,
following the song chords (ie- C# G# F# C# G# F# E A C).

Before anyone argues with me whether it's E or Em, I'm 90% sure it's
E.  The reason for the minor tonality is a pretty ingenious (or lucky?)
trick Cobain played with chords.  G happens to be the minor 3rd of E.
Therefore, even though he plays an E, the tonality of the passsage is
minor.  I wonder if he was aware of this...

Notes:
All apologies for incorrect lyrics -- this is just how I hear
them.  No one knows for sure what they are, anyway.

On Bleach, they play this song in standard tuning (EADGBE),
but on Unplugged they played it a half-step down (Eb Ab Db Gb
Bb Eb).

Some say the Em is actually an E or an E5.  Try 'em all and see what
sounds best to you.

Subject: TAB: Nirvana "Been a Son" and request Date: 14 May 94 00:54:17 GMT X-Newsreader: TIN [version 1.2 PL2] Hi Everyone, I've been seeing some really good Nirvana tab lately (thanks a million to the guy who posted Downer and Mexican Seafood!), so I figured I'd add a little. I haven't seen this one posted, I'm not sure if it's just so easy that nobody doesn't know it, or what. Anyway, here's Been a Son. Oh yeah...if anyone knows Spank Thru, or the solo for D-7, could you PLEASE post it!? Been A Son Written by Kurt Cobain Tabbed by Gene Azevedo There are two major versions of this song...the fast electric version heard on the Lithium single and Incesticide, and a slower "lamer" as Kurt put it, version which I've heard but can't remember what it was on. I'll post the tab for the faster one since it's better, but you can play the more mellow one on an acoustic guitar playing only the higher pitched strings for the verses, and playing the chorus with the normal tuned power chords rather than the dropped d as I will show. Verses: ^-upstroke if you play this one...all others down E---0--0-----------0---(0)--0--------| B---3--3-----------3---(3)--3--------| G---2--2-----------2---(2)--2--------| repeat many times D---0--0-----------0---(0)--0--------| A---0--0---3-2-0---0---(0)--0---3-2-0| D---0--0-----------0---(0)--0--------| Chorus: E------------------------- B------------------------- G------------------------- Repeat D---5-5--3--X-2--2-------- A---5-5--3--X-2--2--3-2-0- D---5-5--3--X-2--2-------- Solo- There are many ways to play this solo...sometimes Kurt just played the verse guitar part as the solo...but my version of the solo (quite pathetic unless you're playing with some other people to help make more noise! G--6-6--4-3-1/6--6-6--4-3-1-- repeat a couple times then G--/4-4--2--2-1--1-1-1-0-1-0--1/4--4--2--2-1--1-1-1-0-1-0 etc. Enjoy! -Gene Azevedo (gcazevedo@ucdavis.edu)

    d-7.tab

From: Jason M Heim Okay, I suck at tabbing things out on the pc, but here goes. D-7 is absolutely my favorite song that Nirvana played (I know it's not theirs, but it rules the way they play[ed] it). D-7 as played by Nirvana on the "Hormoaning" EP: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (apparently this song is originally by Greg Sage) Lyrics: verse 1: Straight as an arrow, defect, defect. Not straight, not so straight, reject, reject. Towards anti-social, solo, solo. verse 2: Standing on the stairs, cold cold morning. Ghostly image of fear, mayday, mayday. Gonna leave this region, they'll take me with them. Dimension Seven tuning: standard (although drop D would work very well) slow part (no distortion): E---0--------0--1--------1-- this sequence is played twice before the drums A------2-----------3-------- come in, then twice more with the drums, then D---------2-----------0----- all throughout the first two lines of each G--------------------------- verse. B--------------------------- E--------------------------- E---5-----5-----6-----6-----5-----5-----6--6-------- this is played during A------7--7--7-----8--8--8-----7--7--7--8--8-------- the third line of each D---------7-----------8-----------7-----8--8-------- verse, after which it G--------------------------------------------------- returns to the riff B--------------------------------------------------- above. E--------------------------------------------------- Then there is that pause where the last chord (E) rings out for about four to eight beats,and then Kurt turns the distortion on and doubles the tempo. He uses the following power chord progression: (REALLY FAST--X MEANS MUTED CHORD) E,E,X,X,E,E,E,E,F,F,F,G,G,G,F,F x2 then he repeats verse 1 (screaming of course) use the above chords for the first two lines, and then this for the third line: A,A,X,X,A,A,A,A,A#,A#,A#,C,C,C,A#,A# x2 repeat the first power chord progression twice with no lyrics. scream verse 2 (same chords as verse 1) guitar solo (improvise your own, it's pretty easy) scream verse 1 again repeat first chord progression 8 times more, screaming "dimension seven" in each. Sorry if this is confusing, unconventional, or even wrong. If anyone has any pointers or corrections, let me know.

I've seen these stupid shirts made by someone who wants to make money, the shirts say "Kurt Cobain - Suicide is alright", i dont knw if its right or wrong, everyone has his opinion, but making money out if it IS wrong, I'm sure we all remember Kurt for being a great carismatic artist, and he was a source of inspiriation for some of us. i dont know if you've seen it or not, but Dave Grohl went up two days ago (Sep 10th) to take the MTV award for BEST ALTERNATIVE VIDEO , and said how much he misses Kurt and thinks about him everyday, suicide is NOT ALRIGHT, it hurts, but then... Coming up next: Nirvana "blew" and Alice in Chains "I Stay Away" (so send me comments about dive)

From: psalzman@sfsuvax1.sfsu.edu (Peter Salzman) ~Title: Even In His Youth Artist: Nirvana; lyrics and music by Kurt Cobain. Recording: 2nd track on the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" CD single. Also known as "Smells Like a Teenage Single". Previously unreleased. Tab: 1.0 by Peter Jay Salzman psalzman@stars.sfsu.edu Beat: Allegro, about 144 bpm. Sound: Not Cobain's standard sound, which is why this tune is interesting. Very distorted with the mids turned up super duper (ie 10) and lows turned up also. A very muddy distortion with lots of harmonics giving it an almost pipe organ sound. A very Marshall sound, but in the OPPOSITE sense of Hendrix who had the treble turned high. Intro: Feedback on 12 fret, 1st string (high E). The following riff is the vamp and verse. For those who want to do it just like the recording, vamp the 2 measures 2 times, then drums enter on the third time. Vocals enter on the fifth repeat.

Hope I don't come back the same. After the chorus is done the 2nd time, go back and play the verse part. The song fades from here while Kurt just sang "even his youth even in his youth even in his youth even in his youth". If you can't fade gracefully (I'm not good at it myself), chop it off at the C. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ This is my 1st tab. I'm just trying to put back into the net a little bit of what I take. I have 4 urgent requests from everyone: 1) If there are any corrections in the song or lyrics PLEASE write to me and I'll correct it and rerelease the tab. 2) If anyone can even guess at the 1st line in the chorus, please let me know. 3) I'm not objective enough to know if I did a good job. If there's anything I can do to make this more usable, let me know. (ie should I just write out the verse instead of partitioning by chord? Should I write out the whole tab instead of taking short cuts like "repeat 4 times"). No suggestion is too trivial to be seriously considered. 4) What Kurt did was fucked and he's a fucker for doing it, but he brought a lot of good music in the world and deserves to be loved for it.

    floyd_th.cho

From: ag725@FreeNet.Carleton.CA (Rick Scaia) Floyd the Barber by Kurt Cobain As interpreted by Rick Scaia (ag725@freenet.carleton.ca) The primary riff for this tune is just an F power chord (for two quarter notes) then a quick slide down to a heavily muted E power chord (two eighths and a quarter note). If you've heard the song, it's pretty easy. The chorus and solo aren't much more difficult. Intro: F E F E Verse: F E F E Hello toilet trained, come on in F E F E Floyd observes my hairy chin F E F E "Sit down in the chair, don't be afraid." F E F E Steaming hot towel on my face Chorus: C# A C G# I was C# A C G# sha-a-a-a-a-a-a-ved, I'm C# A C G# asha-a-a-a-a-a-a-med, I was C# A C G# sha-a-a-a-a-a-a-ved, I'm C# A C G# asha-a-a-a-a-a-a-med Main riff twice Verse 2: [Something indecipherable] in the room Opie, Aunt Bea, I presume They take turns and cut me up I die smothered, Andy's not Chorus Solo: E ----------------------------------------------------- B ----------------------------------------------------- G ----------------------------------------------------- D ----------------------------------------------------- A ---------0-1-3-3-1-0--------------0-1-3-3-1-0-------- E -1-1-0-1-------------3-1--1-1-0-1-------------3-1---- Main riff twice Verse 3 Chorus Main riff once, then bass only on main riff, then drums only. [If you're just playing alone, just play it three time, and mute it more each time until the third time is extremely percussive sounding.]

From: ag725@FreeNet.Carleton.CA (Rick Scaia) For "Frances Farmer": Again, just a guess... all power chrods on this one. For the chorus, I think it's C#-E-D-Bb. Like this: C# E D Bb I miss the comfort in being sad Then the end of the chorus is (starting on the Bb above): Bb-A-Bb-A-G-F# From ther you can either go back into the verse (muted G#-E-G-E-G wide open Bb) or into the bridge (Bb-D-Bb-D-E a couple times then into the same ending as the chorus). Once again, if you understand what I'm saying, give it a try, and let me know how it sounds. And if you want I'll try to post more clearly what I mean.

I am the drummer for a band that is at the moment called Shrug. Andrew Lock, Martyn Foster, Scott Greenshields and I (who make up Hug) usually play our own music, but we also like to do some covers of Nirvana, Hendrix, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Blind Melon, the Jesus Lizard etc. In return for the transcripts we have used from you we would like to give you Heart-Shaped Box, which my Dad worked out. ********************************************************* Heart-Shaped Box By Nirvana e-------------------------------------------------------- B-------------------------------------------------------- G-------------------------------------------------------- D--------9-----------5-----------2--2-------------------- A-----9-----9-----5-----5-----2--------2----------------- E--7-----------3-----------0--------------0-------------- --------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------0/1--1--1--1--------------- --------9-----------5-----------------------2-----2------ -----9-----9-----5-----5-----------------------2--------- --7-----------3-----------0------------------------------ For the chords we are not so sure of the exact notes so we play: e-(7)-(3)--0--- This is played up until the B-(7)-(3)--0--- end of the chorus repeatedly, G-(8)-(4)--1--- until the "Your priceless D--9---5---2--- advice" where instead of A--9---5---2--- going E-7-3-0-7-3-0 it goes E--7---3---0--- E-7-3-0-3-0-3. I hope you follow that as it is pretty simple. We would be pleased to receive any improvements. See ya 'gain, Luce and the rest of Hug. HEART-SHAPED BOX Lyrics (from In Utero): She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for a week I was drawn into your magnet tar pit trap I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black Hey Wait I've got a new complaint Forever in debt to your priceless advice Hate Haight I've got a new complaint Forever in debt to your priceless advice Hey Wait I've got a new complaint Forever in debt to your priceless advice Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet Cut myself on angel's hair and baby's breath Broken hymen of your highness I'm left black Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back c.watt@silsoe.cranfield.ac.uk From: KLeonard@aol.com "Heart-Shaped Box" by Nirvana (This transcription is from my own attempts, and a little is from a Guitar World mag that I happened to be skimming thru.) First Drop D tuning (where you tune the lowest string down one whole step to D), then tune everything down 1/2 step. So, from low to high, the tuning is Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb Then the intro and verse go like this: Ab5 E5 Db5 ------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------ ------2----------------------------------------- ----2---2--------3------------0----0----------- --0------------3---3--------0----0---0--------- -------------3----------0----------------------- Ab5 E5 Bb5 ------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------ ------2----------------------------------------- ----2---2--------3--------4-4--4--------------- --0------------3---3----------0---3-3-----2----- -------------3----------0----------------------- The verse ends with that Bb5 pattern with distortion. Then the chorus is just those chords in the verse but with bent notes mixed in.

I'm nearly positive about most of the above stuff, but I'm not exactly sure about that Bb5 pattern, but that's what that magazine said so I'm goin' with that for now . If anyone knows the solo, pleez post it! keith From: leper.messiah@njackn.com Here's the REAL way to play Heart-Shaped Box by Nirvana on In Utero.

From: psalzman@sfsuvax1.sfsu.edu (Peter Salzman) I don't know the name of the tune and it's not on the main albums/EP's or the tons of 3 song "singles" CD's (that I've ever seen). They didn't play it the two times I was honored enough to see them, but I heard it on the radio once and couldn't record it in time. Here is the first verse: A-B A D Where do bad folks go when they die? A-B A F# They don't go to heaven where the angels fly. A-B A E Instead they go to hell where they burn and they fry. D - E A B Won't see them again till the fourth of July. Then comes the chorus which I unfortunately don't remember, but it was a very pretty minor type of thing; really very pretty with wistful lyrics. If anyone can post the rest of the song (lyrics, chords, both, etc) please do. I would like to learn this song. If anyone knows the name of this song and where I can find a recording of it please post it or send email- the song is very simple and anyone can pick out the chords. thanks. -peter -- ##################################################################### I BOYCOTT ANY COMPANY WHO USES MASS ADVERTISING ON THE INTERNET

From: stingray@unlisys.in-berlin.de (Christian Lampl) The song seems to be based on a Bb-chord Then there are two riffs a "slow" one and a "fast" one. The slow one is something like this e|------------------------------------------------------| b|------------------------------------------------------| g|-----------------8s7----------------------------------| d|-----------6s8h9-----8--------------------------------| A|------------------------------------------------------| E|------------------------------------------------------| Anybody out there who has figured out the "fast" part ? Or anything else important of the song ? From: ejs@world.std.com (Eric J Schwarzenbach) This is my attempt to tab parts of Nirvana's "Love Buzz" from the album Bleach. I checked before I posted this, and there's another tab of this on Nevada, but I think this makes some improvements, so I'm going to post it anyway. -ejs@world.std,com (Eric Schwarzenbach) There is one A# power chord done on the guitar during the song. I'm not sure, but if you listen to the bass part there may actually be other chord changes during the song but this is the only on struck on the guitar: A#5 or maybe A# (there seem to be variations) ----- ----- ----- -3--- -3--- -3--- -3--- -3--- -1--- -1--- ----- ----- This bass riff can be approximated in the guitar as: (I'm assuming normal tuning) ~ H P ---------------- ---------------- ---------------- ---------------- ---------5-6-5-- -6-5-6-7-------- This riff shows up later on a higher octive as an actual guitar riff: ~ H P ---------------- ---------------- ---------7-8-7-- -8-7-8-8-------- ---------------- ---------------- I'm using the ~ symbol to indicate vibrato, H to mean Hammer on and P to mean Pull off. The Hammer / Pull sequence above is done as a quick trill. These riffs are repeated together smoothly so that the first note (sustained a bit) serves as the end note of the riff also, though I didn't write it that way (you get the idea). There is another very fast descending guitar riff played that is something like this: H P H P H P -10-11-10---8-9-8------------------- --------------------10-11-10-------- ------------------------------------ ------------------------------------ ------------------------------------ ------------------------------------ I don't think this captures it perfectly, but I think is a series of trills like that. Anyone have any enhansements or opinions as to whether I'm on the right track? There's also additional assorted distorted guitaring that I've given up on figuring out. The words seem to be something like: Would you believe me when I tell you you are the queen of my heart? Please don't decieve me when I hurt you, This ain't the way it seems. [or maybe] Just say it the way it seems. chorus: Can you feel my love buzz? (repeated).

From: 3EV1@QUCDN.QUEENSU.CA As far as I know, this song is nameless but is on the "No Alternative" CD. I don't even own the CD so this might be transcribed in a totally wrong key, and don't send me hate-mail telling me that it is :) Here's the chord progression: C#m A F# G# A B "...And if you save yourself, you'll find, da da da da..." Here's the chorus ----> C#m A F# A F# A F# C#m : 446654 -I may have left out something since I'm doing this A : 577655 from memory. If so, I guess Kurt would understand...

Gomez" Date: Sat, 17 Oct 1992 15:36:36 -0400 Organization: Freshman, H&SS general, Carnegie Mellon, Pittsburgh, PA Lines: 108 Paul McManus writes: >I missed the original posting of the 'acoustic' version of this song. > >so if i could get it i would be eternally grateful ta. Now, I posted an all power chord version of this song not too long ago which is the way the song is played on the album (Nevermind). When you ask for the 'acoustic' version of this song I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean the open chord version? If so, then here's what you can do. I'm sending at the end of this letter the power chord version that I posted before. The open chord version has basically the same chords: E G D C for the lyrics and D C G A# for the chorus. These are all simple major open chords chords and when I play it this way, I use a barre major shape on the 6th fret for the A# chord of the chorus. I hope this helps, please let me know of any problems. Thanx, -Philip F. Gomez PS. -Here's the power chord version of "Polly." Note: Played as it is, it does sound good on an acoustic as well.

From: juggle@athena.mit.edu Joseph Grossman **************************** 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.

From: ThatDude@aol.com OK, I think this is the only song off of Nevermind (other than Endless, Nameless) that hasn't been put up here, so here we go: Stay Away, By Kurt Cobain Tune the guitar down a half step It starts out with drums and bass. Then the guitar enters with (all power chords): D5 B5 F5 C5 C5 C#5 (repeat 4 times) Then the verses come, mostly drums and bass, but during "I don't know why!" Kurt plays: E)-------------------------- B)-------------------------- G)-----4/5-5-5-5(bend)-5---- D)-------------------------- A)-------------------------- E)-------------------------- For the chorus its just the intro over and over again. Bridge: D5 F5 At the end of the bridge, during the "I don't know why" instead of the normal thing, he plays: E)-------------------------- B)-------------------------- G)-----3--3--3--3(bend)--3-- D)-------------------------- A)-------------------------- E)-------------------------- Then its played normally till the guitar shuts up awhile for the bass and drums, then right before he screams he playes all of the A, D, and G strings open, then he screams and goes into the chorus. thats it.

****Tourettes**** from `In Utero` side2 track3 ?-Nirvana Just thinking of this song makes gives me goose-bumps......... As far as my battered ears can discern The chords are something like.. E D# E B 0 6 7 2 0 8 9 4 1 8 9 4 2 8 9 4 2 6 7 2 0 X X X Same all through the song. I *think* theseare the chords....my tiny walkman speakers don't give a very clear sound ( good workman, bad tools honestly !!).The song is so wild that it seems the full major chords are played.Aaanyway, the lyrics (according to the author) were screamed on the spot, no lyric sheet here.make what you can of them. The only thing I could discern was `Cold heart` in the chorus.good luck..... It's goodbye From me... Ben S. bsholdic@unix1.tcd.ie

Sender: "KLeonard" To: guitar@nevada.edu Date: Mon, 01 Aug 94 13:29:21 EDT Subject: TAB: "Vaseline Cover Songs" by Nirvana I've decided to list all three of the Vaseline cover songs Nirvana has done, since they're all real short (Molly's Lips, Son of a Gun, and Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam). (a chord notation is at the end of this document for the musically retarded) *Molly's Lips* This is just two chords throughout. Just G5 C5. That's it! *Son of a Gun* The intro and verse is A5 E5 D5 E5 Chorus: G5 C5 D5 C5 The interlude is just basically G5 D5 a couple of times, then A5 E5* a couple of times, then back to G5 D5 four times. *Jesus Wants Me For a Sunbeam* Verse: E5 D5 A5 Chorus: E5 D5 E5 D5 E5 D5 A5 The solo (and the accordion part in the Unplugged version, I think) goes like this: ---------------------------------------------------------- -----------------9-7-------------------------------------- --6-7-8-9--9-9------9-7--7-7--9-7-6---------7-6--------- --------------------------------------7--7-7------7--7-7- ---------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------- In live versions, the first and third verse are clean, while the choruses, second verse, and solo are distorted. But both live electric versions and the acoustic Unplugged version are played this way. On Unplugged it's tuned down 1/2 step and for the outro the above tab is played once and then this is played: -------------------------------------------- -----------------9-7-------------7--9--10-- --6-7-8-9--9-9------9-7--7-7--9----------- -------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------- chord notation E5 : 022xxx G5 : 355xxx or 3x00xx A5 : 577xxx or x022xx C5 : x355xx D5 : x577xx or xx023x E5* : x799xx

The chords shown below are the chords you're pretending to play; the chords that come out are a half step lower because of the tuning.
