Post Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
Hey everyone, I hope you're all doing well. I've got a special performance for you today, as I'm extra excited to show this arrangement to the world. This song holds a place in my heart as it was one of the first rock songs I ever fell in love with as a kid and helped push me toward that genre being at the core of who I am as a musician. I've attempted to arrange the song several times over the last few years and always came up short until this particular arrangement. And of course, the tabs and a performance breakdown are available over at http://www.patreon.com/jgoldbergmusic. Enjoy!

Wow, Josh! I was wondering how one would make up for the lots of percussive picking and strumming that Kurt does ("Mr. Cobain"?) on the guitar. The answer: you still do it anyway on the Stick. It's a 4-chord song, but the interest lies in as much the rythm of the guitar as it does the notes, and the percussive effects.

I like your left hand choices for accompaniment, and the variations between a monophonic quarter-note pulse, to more chordal stuff.

Awesome job here. Josh! Thanks for sharing as well!

That was amazing. Liked the various techniques used. Ill have to try some of the rhythmic percussive tapping and strumming. Very inspiring
