Default "smells like teen spirit" (Nirvana) fingerstyle

Hi folks,

after all my recordings of easy-listening and happy tunes i just recorded a coverversion of an old song from Nirvana today:

"smells like teen spirit"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ilvkmc3Hk2M

It was just a first idea to arrange an easy coverversion of this great composition. So please don't kill me for it ... ;-)

Greetz & have a nice sunday,

Jimmy

Hey guitarquango, what a nice job, I reallly like it. The recording quality is beyond YT average...... nice tone of that guitar. I would kick a vox with your arrangement ( I like to sing) specially because I am basically a strummer, but appreciate your rendition.

Thank you so much for your kind words delaorden9, polarred21 & jessupe.
As i recorded this tune i wasn't sure if it's not to simple. The original is one of the most important compositions ever and i'm so happy that someone likes my version... :-) Thanks!!

Greetz & all the best,

Jimmy

Awesome! i remember hearing it the first time like it was yesterday, and you did a fantastic job mastering it as an acoustic solo piece! My better half was listening across the room and started humming as you played. I suspect this will be added to our learn to play list now!
