Tuning:DADGAD

My simplified version of the late and great Eric Roche's Smells Like Teen Spirit.
I know the tab's not on the mark but just use it, with his video, to make it your
own and perhaps post improvements on my version.  Listen to his video for the 
changes and composition.  Have fun.

  I prefer to let the harmonics ring fully rather than the percussive rhythmic 
  finger taps used in his video.

Same chords are used for his amazing wha wha electric guitar section although I haven't
quite worked out how he does this yet LOL. Again use this tab a loose guide only and 
embelish it with your own style..............Apparently he uses his thumb pic to scrape 
the guitar's body next to the fretboard in a very fast rythmic motion.  Personally i don't
use a thumb pic so ho! hum! I've made up my own alternative middle section.

| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| H  harmonic
| x  Mute note
