Nirvana – Rape Me Guitar Lesson

In this Rape Me guitar lesson video, I will show you all the chords to this fun song off of Nirvana's In Utero album.

You will need to tune your guitar down one-half step to (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) in order to follow along with this lesson and the original recording.

The chords are kept very simple and shouldn't present much of a problem if you can play basic power chords and bar chords.

The hardest part to learn will be the rhythm strumming in the picking hard. I will try to break that down so you will know how to approach it so you can lock in with the song pretty quickly.

All-in-all, there is really only a couple of different chord progressions to get down. Kurt Cobain played the main chord progression in both a strummed style and arpeggio picking style. I will break each one down in depth.

I hope you guys enjoy learning the highly requested song from Nirvana!
