Floyd the Barber  Nirvana

by Kurt Cobain
As interpreted by Rick Scaia (
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

Main riff twice
Verse 3
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.)
