In Deep Video Lesson: Grunge
Andy Aledort shows you the essential techniques for playing grunge.
Lesson 6 - Nirvana Nirvana's Kurt Cobain liked to play in standard tuning tuned down a full step (low to high, D G C F A D). Andy starts out by showing you a lick, ala "Come As Your Are", that makes cool use of effects to give you "that swirly, underwater sound." The final riff, ala "Territorial Pissing", points out grunge's punk roots as it uses a lot of Ramones-style power chords.
