Spank thru

Nirvana


Here's some tab for you. I noticed that there is no good tab for Spank out there on the net so here's mine.
Spank Thru by Kurt Cobain Tabbed by Alex "Zole" Michaud and Ben LeClair
The intro is played two ways; on demo versions it's something like: A G D E-|----------------------2---2-2--|- B-|--2---2-2-2-----------3---3-3--|- G-|--2---2-2-2--0---0-0--2---2-2--|- D-|--2---2-2-2--0---0-0--0---0-0--|- A-|--0---0-0-0--2---2-2-----------|- E-|-------------3---3-3-----------|- But on some live versions it's just A-open-A like this: A open A open E-|------------------------------|- B-|--2---2-2-2--0---0-0-0--2--0--|- G-|--2---2-2-2--0---0-0-0--2--0--|- D-|--2---2-2-2--0---0-0-0--2--0--|- A-|--0---0-0-0--0---0-0-0--0--0--|- E-|------------------------------|- The verse is the intro riff with palm muting. For the masturbation part (I can feel it! I can hold it!) I prefer to just play E and G but it's really something like: E-|--0--0--3-3--5-3----|- and then the chorus:
E-|------------------------------------------|- B-|---------------4--4--4--4/7--7------------|- G-|---------------4--4--4--4/7--7--pause,----|- D-|---------------4--4--4--4/7--7--repeat-3x-|- A-|--0--0--1--2---2--2--2--2/5--5------------|- E-|------------------------------------------|-
E-|-----------------------------------------------|- B-|---------------4--4--4--4--4-------------------|- G-|---------------4--4--4--4--4-------------------|- D-|---------------4--4--4--4--4--5-5-5-5--3-3-3-3-|- and back to A-|--0--0--1--2---2--2--2--2--2--5-5-5-5--3-3-3-3-|- the masturbation E-|------------------------------3-3-3-3--1-1-1-1-|- part.
Also the solo-??? if you have the solo or the mystery line in the lyrics _PLEASE_ post them!!
There's a soft, pretentious mountain Listen to the light of the trees And all the flowers in the minor And the birds fly happily We're together once again my love I need you back oh baby baby
I can't explain just why We lost it from the start With or without you girl You'll only break my heart...YEAH!!!!!!
I can FEEL it! I can HOLD it! I can bend it, I can shape it, I can mould it I can KILL it! I can TASTE it! I can SPANK it! I can beat it, masturbate it! (2nd time: I can beat, ejaculate it!)
I been looking for day glow Always hearing the same old MYSTERY LINE I can make it do things you wouldn't think it ever could...
There you go. Email at hyperfreem@aol.com if you want.

Title: Spank thru Artist: Nirvana By: Kurdt Kobain Tabbed by: Sylvain Duchet (duchetjl@zeus.univ-poitiers.fr) Also availaible in: Wired, Seventh heaven, Smells like punk spirit, Complete radio sessions, etc..
I have tabbed this because, looking for it in OLGA, i found no good version of this song.
I hope it's gonna help you play it. I think the lyrics aren't wrong, but the solo (??) surely is. It's the solo of the Complete radio session version. Maybe you've got a different version of it. I tabbed it out just to give an idea of what Kurdt played. If you got a better version, please, E-mail it to me!

I know the last line is completly wrong (as the rest of the solo) but Kurt plays in this place of the guitar.

chorus part one: I can feel it! I can hold it! I can bend it, I can shape it, I can mould it! I can kill it! I can taste it! I can spank it, beat it, masturbate it!
