NOTES & Thanks: 
This Tab book is dedicated to the loving memory of Kurt Cobain, and Nirvanas breakthrough album Nevermind.  Although it took me a while to translate the album here it is in its entirety.As you will notice most of the tabs for these songs are incorrect on the internet. Even Smells Like Teen Spirt is usally wrong and never includes the break after the chorus.Here it is though all the solos, all the breaks, all the chords, everything. 
                                                         
                               
Thanks,
