HI! there, my name id isidro and I've wrote some uncreditted tabs but from
   now on I'll put it, this tab includes every song in the nevermind album
   except " endless, nameless ", all songs were tabbed by me except
   " on a plain " tabbed by jesse, and with a little help of mine. 
   Hope you enjoy it and if there are any corrections or if you have
   any doubts e-mail my friend at "daid@nether.net"  (I don't have a modem). 
   Well I've got nothing else to say, except that:
     Kurt wasn't a hero, he was a legend; and as they say:
     heroes are remembered, but legends never die


        Notation Legend.- 
                     / = slide up      
                     \ = slide down    
                     p = pull up
                     h = hammer on
                     b = bend to note
                  ~~~~ = vibrato
                  /\/\ = vibrato
                    pb = pre-bend
                   pbr = pre-bend and release 
                    hb = hold bend
                    gb = gradual bend
                   gbr = gradual bend and release
                  pbgr = pre - bend and gradual release
                  trem = play note as fast as you can

  Note.- this song doesn't sounds really good without a bass, if you
         don't have one, but another friend has another guitar one can play 
         the guitar part and the other the bass part, which is only this

         during verse, and pre-chorus, and solo I guess
 (5th) A |-------------1--1--1-------------4--4--4----|in the chorus I guess
 (6th) E |---1--1--1-------------4--4--4--------------|the bass plays this
                                                       notes with the same
                                                       rythm as the guitar


                                     "Up until I was nine, I felt I could
                                      become a rock staror astronaut or
                                      the president."
                                                    -Kurt Cobain

  Note.- In the last bar you can play (x577xx) instead of (10-12-12-x-x-x)
         but however how I tabbed is how Kurt played it, I say this 'cause 
         I saw in the "Live tonight sold out" video of Nirvana that he 
         played the song like that.

                                      years. I felt guilty beyond words
                                      about these things. When we are 
                                      backstage and the lights go out and
                                      the manic roar of the crowd begins,
                                      it doesn't affect me. The fact is,
                                      I can't fool you, any one of you.
                                      It simply isn't fair to you or to me.
                                      The worst crime I can think of would 
                                      be to (trick) people by faking it and
                                      pretending as I were having 100% fun"
                                                        -Kurt Cobain

***************************************************************************** 
 
 Jesse made this one for the unplugged album, so he didn't include the
 beggining, so I'll put it, and the rest was done by him, so I
 don't take  credit for this one. The intro and "*" were made or corrected 
 by me, I changed that chord (it was orginally (x0222x), 
 I don't know if it was wrong or what, but it sounds better with this chord.

                                      It got me through my own stuff. He
                                      was a spokesperson for our generation.
                                      He represented what we all feel in our 
                                      lives, but he lived it"

   that it is true but the imagination should be in your mind for the
   complete control"
