Smells Like Teen Spirit is one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite bands. I remember being blown away the first time I heard the song. I was lucky to be able to see them in concert. I saw them in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the fall of 1993.
This was a tough arrangement to make. How do you make a solo guitar arrangement of this piece? I decided to transpose the key to E minor from the original key of F minor. The melodic line is so beautiful with the ostinato bass–it creates a bunch of suspensions.
I hope you enjoy this guitar lesson. I have tons of videos like this at my guitar school found on my website. You can find lessons for beginners through the advanced guitar player.
