In this The Man Who Sold The World Unplugged guitar lesson, I will show you how to play Nirvana’s cover of this David Bowie classic off of their MTV Unplugged album.

Before trying to follow along with this video lesson or the original recording, you will need to tune your guitar down 1/2 step to (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb).

Through a lot of the song there are two separate guitar parts being played. We will have Kurt Cobain’s guitar parts which include the main melody lines and solo, and also Pat Smear’s guitar parts which include the moving bass line during the chorus sections.

Both guitarists strum the same chord progression during the verse, but you will learn the slight variations on these chords that each of them plays.

Hopefully who have a friend you can play this with because it all sounds pretty cool when it comes together. Enjoy!
