      The Come as you Are, Territorial Pissings, Something in the way,
      On a plain and polly were transcribed by me, as I didn't have the
      TABs for them available at the moment.

**Smells Like Teen Spirit**


                          -**-
     A good way to get the Nirvana "Grunge" sound is just
to use very heavy metal distortion plus very thick chorus,
with  the pickup  selector in  the bridge (furthest back)
position.

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 no= rmal 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 stri= ngs open, then he screams and goes into the chorus. **On a Plain** Main Riff: D G A F# G F# E CHORUS: D G A Bb Bridge: F5 E5 A G5 I'll start this off Without any words I got so high I scratched 'till I bled The Finest day I've ever had is when I learned how to cry on command My mother died Every night Its safe to say Don't quote me on that The black sheep got blackmailed again Forgot to put on the zipcode Somewhere I have heard this before In a dream my memory is stored As defence I'm nuetered and spayed What the hell am I tryin' to say?
