Lesson notes

Lake Of Fire was originally done by alternative band The Meat Puppets. They joined Nirvana for a few of their songs on an episode of MTV Unplugged. This brought a whole new audience to them, and the song.

This lesson is starts off as an ear-training exercise, partly because of a Fly On The Wall lesson I did recently with one of my students, MattF working on it. We end up covering the progression in a couple different keys, as Nirvana’s version was tuned down one-half step, as well as a couple short guitar fills that stand out. The song can be easily played with power chords, or more accurately and harmonically with quite a few barre chords, including some from the ‘A’ family requiring a hinge barre with the third finger.
