                "D-7" as performed by Nirvana
(originally written by Greg Sage,
performed by the Wipers)

This is a great cover tune.  For those who don't know about it, it's on some
demos and on the Hormoaning import ep.  I think it's on one of the import
singles too (probably Lithium UK import).

standard tuning
~ = let ring
hb = half bend

Intro
   E5                     F5     (G5) F5
-----------------------------
-----------------------------
-----------------------------
--------2-------------0------
-----2-----2-------3-----3---
--0-------------1------------

(it's probably easier to play the intro in Drop D, but, whatever floats your
boat...)

then that almost-chorus-like part of the intro (strumming):
A5  (x022xx)    G5  (355xxx)

the intro ends with a strummed E5.

Verse
   E5                                 F5              G5

Solo (at least the beginning)

--9~--------9-9-------9hb--9--7-------------

the rest of the solo shouldn't be too hard to figure out, but i'm too lazy to
do that myself right now : )

D - 7    -    NIRVANA 

This is the way I play Nirvanas D-7. I hope someone read this, so I can
hear some opinions about it...


Tune down a half step (Eb Ab Db .....)


Riff 1 (Chorus 1st part):                Riff 2 (Chorus 2nd part):

e -------------------------------        -----------------------------
A -------------------------------        -----------------------------
D -------------------------------        -3------3--------------------
G ---------3---------------------        -3---3-----3-----4---6---4---
H -----3-------3------4---6---4--        -1------------2--------------
E -1---------------2-------------        -----------------------------
       Staight.... arrow
                

Play so:

-> Riff 1  x2
Drum enters

Slow part:

-> Riff 1  x2

-> Riff 1  x4  -------------> Straight as an arrow
-> Riff 2  x2  --|            deflect, deflect
                 |            Not straight, not so straigth
                 |            Reject, reject
                 |
                 -----------> No time to .....?
                              Solo, solo ..?

-> Riff 1  x2 (first time strumm 133xxx instead of the 1xxxxx)
                                
-> Riff 1 x4   -------------> Standing on the stairs
-> Riff 2 x2   --|            Come, Come on now
                 |            Go sleep (?) into fear ..?
                 |            Mayday, mayday
                 |
                 |----------> Don't leave this region
                              They'll take you with them

-> Riff 1  x2 (first time strumm 133xxx instead of the 1xxxxx)
-> Riff 1      -------------> Demand your selfish ..?
-> Riff 1 
-> Pick (1xxxxx)

Hard part:

The hard part use powerchords instead of the picking:
          

Instead of Riff 1:                          Instead of RIFF 2:  
                                              
e -------------------------------------     Pretty the same like the left  
A -------------------------------------     one, but one string higher:
D -------------------------------------        
G -3--3--3--3--3--3--4--4--6--6--4--4--         133xxx -> x133xx   
H -3--3--3--3--3--3--4--4--6--6--4--4--         244xxx -> x244xx 
E -1--1--1--1--1--1--2--2--4--4--2--2--         466xxx -> x466xx
   d  d  u  u  d  u  d  d  u  u  d  u                 
   
         d ... Strum Down
         u ... Strum Up

-> Repeat the slow part but, instead of the Riffs use the powerchords shown
   above...
   (thats the thing I call 'hard part')

-> Instead of the last pick (1xxxxx) play the solo (someone who know how to 
                                                    play it?)

-> Powerchords for Riff 1  x2

-> Repeat the hole hard part

-> Repeat the "Demand your selfish ..?" line 7 times. 


Thats it!!

!! Is there anyone, who can help me with the vocals (who the hell         !!
!! understand this guy?) or with the solo?                                !!
!! Or do anyone have corrections or such a stuff (maybe his own version?) !!
!!                                                                        !!
!! ---------------                                                        !!
