That's basically it. Sorry I couldn't go into much detail on how to play it,
but this isn't my own tabbing so I didn't have much to work with.
_____________________________________________________________________________

"School" by Nirvana
(standard tuning and everything)

hb = half bend             fb = full bend
/ = slide up

for the intro, bang the back of the neck so the strings vibrate and all that.
 then play the main riff:

e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------|
E|--0--0-0-5hb-0-0-5hb-0-0-0-0-0-5fb-----|

[Chorus]
C5  (x355xx)   A5  (577xxx)   E5  (022xxx)   D5  (x577xx)

  i'm not sure about the bridge, but it's something like this:
e|----------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------|
D|----------7------7----7---7--7--7--7/---|
A|--7--7-7----7-7----7--------------------|
E|----------------------------------------|

that's about it for the tab.  i have no idea on the solo.  here's the lyrics
(all 15 words):
Won't you believe it is just my luck
No recess
You're in high school again

************************************

 / = Slide
 ^^^^ = Vib

you dont have to bang on the back of the neck for the beginning of the song...you can turn down the volume, strum the strings and slowly turn the turn the volume up
