Lesson notes

Nirvana came onto the scene in the early 1990s and was a major part of the grunge movement that started in the Pacific Northwest, partially inspired by some of Neil Young's songs and styles. Kurt Cobain wrote and sang some very basic songs, most of which are interesting chord progressions along with some cool riffs. Come As You Are is a great example of this as it starts with a simple riff that is followed with a set of 2-finger barre chords. It is important to play the riff with the alternating picking technique, and the barre chords could even be reduced to power chords, making this song even a little easier to play.
