I couldn't believe there wasn't an accurate 4 string tab for this song yet,
so I decided to make one.

This song is in drop D, but it will sound off if you're playing along with
the track because Nirvana had all of their instruments tuned an extra half
step down. This means strings would be D flat, A flat, D flat, and G flat.
Just tune it by ear to the master track.

I wrote the verse down wrong, it should be this:

Verse:

G:---------------------------------| X8
D:---------------------------------|
A:---------------------5---5---5---|
D:-7-7-7-7-3-3-3-3-0-0---0---0---0-|

instead of the A:--9~-| in the chorus, try a bend on the 8th fret. and bend the A:--4~-| too. it sounds better methinks
