Junkyard

Nirvana


This one is not as acurate as the D.7. I did earlier. It's because this version is live and I had a hard time making out certain parts especially the solo. It's decent enough to play with a band, I feel, so don't be discouraged. It will help you if you have this version available to listen to (especially for playing the solo since it's kind of played rather loosely and even has a little swing to it). I still don't know if the majority of the lyrics are correct. I couldn't make out what Kurt was singing. He mumbled more than my ears could distinguish. If anyone has these lyrics please post them and mail me a copy too, if you don't mind.

Okay I (hylton@runet.edu, until 8 DEC 95) feel stupid. I got these corrections (see below) from CHRISTOPHER S RINEWALT . He pointed out things that I should have gotten (especially the verse riff) Sorry for the misinformation, I feel I possibly screwed up because I was in a hurry; however, I still admit I screwed up. The article Chris sent me is edited to shorten the file size. Thank you Chris for the corrections.

ok, for the verse you have the first 2 parts right, the E5 then the open bottom strings, but after this, where you have the "vvv" try playing an open g-chord 3 times quick then switching back to an E5 real quick, its kinda hard to hear on guitar, but if you listen to the bass you can hear it better, if you have enough distortion, and the high end turned up dso you can hear the open strings, its sounds just like it

for the solo, try begining on the A-string 6/7 fret then 6 fret D-string, playing it on te lower strings gives it more bottom end, at least for that part, the rest i dont know where he goes
