Just when I thought I had this one down, I thought I'd play along with the song, from Unplugged album… It did not sound good. :-)

It seems like Nirvana played this in a different tuning than the songbook (standard). Any ideas what the difference is?

They tuned the guitars to Eb, didn't they?

I usually add it to the text is it's down a semitone... and I don't recall that with this song, but I'll check it later!

Just tuned down a semitone and it sounded much closer to the record… Grungey and off key. Love it! :)

Learning this one at the minute. Listening to the record, there's a lot more fills and variations. Any tips on figuring these out and working them in to my playing?

Listening again, it sounds like he's 'arpegiating' some of the chords - would that be the correct term and the correct interpretation?
