    Lounge Act

    Nirvana


    This is a simplified version of the song that I created for an 8-year-old student. It's played on just the 6th string. Instead of chord names, only the 6th string fret number is provided.

    Playing a bass line on the 6th string is the easiest way to play a song on guitar--perfect for total beginners or kids who want to sing and play at the same time.


     

    Intro:

    / 7 - - - / 3 - 8 - / x4 (bass only first two times)

     

    7           3 (½)            8 (½)                             

    Truth - covered in security

    7     3 (½)                   8 (½)

           I can't let you smother me

    7     3 (½)                8 (½)

           Like to but it wouldn't work

    7     3 (½)           8 (½)

           Trading off taking turns

    7         3 (½)               8 (½)

             I don't regret a thing

     

    CHORUS:

             0 (½)     5  (½)       10 (½)   3  (½)

    I've got this friend you see he makes me feel

    0 (½)            5  (½)    10 (½)   3  (½)

          And I wanted more than I could steal

    0 (½)          5  (½)   10 (½)   3  (½)

          I’ll arrest myself and wear a shield 

    0 (½)                5  (½)       10 (½)  3  (½)

          I’ll move out of my way to prove I

    5    4 (½)     3 (½)

    Still

                     5        4 (½)     3 (½)

    Smell her on you

     

      7        3 (½)              8 (½) 

    Don't - tell me what I wanna hear

    7           3 (½)               8 (½) 

             Afraid of never knowing fear

    7            3 (½)             8 (½) 

             Experience anything you need

    7       3 (½)                   8 (½) 

             I'll keep fighting jealousy

    7        3 (½)               8 (½) 

             'til it's frickin’ gone

     

    CHORUS

     

    Instrumental:

    / 7 - - - / 3 - 8 - /x2

     

    Repeat First Verse

     

     

     

     

    FINAL CHORUS:

     

             0 (½)     5  (½)       10 (½)   3  (½)

    I've got this friend you see he makes me feel

    0 (½)            5  (½)   10 (½)    3  (½)

          And I wanted more than I could steal

    0 (½)          5  (½)   10 (½)    3  (½)

          I’ll arrest myself and wear a shield 

    0 (½)            5  (½)      10 (½)  3  (½)

          I'll go outta my way to make you a deal

    0 (½)            5  (½)   10 (½) 3  (½)

         We've made a pact to learn from who

    0 (½)            5  (½)     10 (½)   3  (½)

         And whatever we want without new rules

    0 (½)           5  (½)         10 (½)     3  (½)

         We'll share what's lost and what we grew

    0 (½)               5  (½)          10 (½)  3  (½)

        They'll go out of their way to prove they

    5    4(½)     3 (½)

    Still

                    5        4(½)     3 (½)

    Smell her on you

    5    4(½)     3 (½)

    Still

                    5        4(½)     3 (½)

    Smell her on you

                   5 (hold)    

    Smell her on you
