Hey Guys! Marty here, hope you are still rocking and rolling.
I decided to to make a Nirvana Lessoon for you guys. It’s “Heart Shaped Box” which you will have to tune your whole guitar down to Eb and then your 6th string down another whole step so I guess you could call this Drop Db tuning. Hope you enjoy the lesson which also includes the solo. thanks for supporting marty music, and liking, sharing, and subscribing to “MartyMusic”



  1. What's the name of the pedal you used during the chorus? And great lesson btw, you break things down and made this song so much easier to learn.

  3. Hi Everybody! After watch a lot of great players performing and teaching their incredible techniques aorund the internet, I wonder…nowadays it's so easy to learn and have access to all these great and difficult techniques and these may cause some kind of loss of creativity, the will to the search and development of your omw style.. I´ve made a simple test to verify our interpretation skills just hearing a "aparentally" simple riff. Please take a look..
