Nirvana Song Lesson Playlist

Grunge and Alternative Rock music simply wouldn’t be the same without the influence of the Washington-originating band, Nirvana. Formed in 1987, Nirvana consisted of singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain, dummer Dave Grohl, and bassist Krist Novoselic. The band released three studio albums between 1989 and 1993, the most notable of them being Nevermind, which peaked at No. 1 in ten countries. Nirvana is, to say the least, one of the biggest influences on modern alternative rock. And thus, Nirvana’s hits are some of most popular songs to cover on guitar.

In this blog, we’ve highlighted the in-depth Nirvana song lessons JamPlay has to offer! Let’s learn some alternative rock hits on guitar!
