An excellent and accurate transcription to match NIRVANA's classic performance!10 février 2014

The whole reason that I get a "score" is because I like having access to all musical parts and other instruments. Just for that reason alone, this book should be more preferred over the guitar tab/vocal version. And this book gives you just that. You get the Krist's accordion part in "Jesus Doesn't Want Me for a Sunbeam". You get all the cello parts in "All Apologies", "Something in the way", "Dumb" and any other track that has it. Unlike the previous Transcribed Scores books for Nevermind and In Utero, the cello part is actually written in the correct clef: bass clef. Nevermind and In Utero had cello parts transcribed in treble clef which I felt was a huge mistake as I play cello. It should be noted that this book omits within the transcription of "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?" that the additional instrument is cello. But it is clearly the cello part and is in bass clef. This book is accurate right down to each song accurately having each part played by any given musician. In "Penny Royal Tea" it accurately includes only vocal and guitar just like the album.Furthermore, you get all drum parts and bass parts of course.
What makes this book stand out is that they are truly arranged for acoustic instruments. You could buy the album folios and get the studio versions of the songs. But these arrangements are unique and perfect for a Nirvana fan just learning on acoustic guitar. This is a great book for band to collaborate and learn their individual parts better by being able to know what the other instruments are doing. Also, in this book you will get four songs that you won't find on any of the other Transcribed Scores Nirvana books. These songs are "Jesus Doesn't Want Me for a Sun Beam", "Oh Me", "Plateau", and "Lake of Fire". I can tell you that the transcription in this book of "The Man who Sold the World" and "Where Did you Sleep Last Night?" are taken directly from this book in the later Hal Leonard Transcribed Scores "Nirvana" greatest hits book (even forgetting to say that the additional part is cello in the latter song).
Although I have learned many of my favorite Nirvana songs already as a huge Nirvana fan, I do find a book like this indispensable. Grammy's are overrated I think but Nirvana did win a Grammy for this performance. This book does justice to the award winning performance for sure by being accurate and easy to read for any skill level of musicianship.

I bought this book after buying nirvana unplugged cd. I expected so much more from this book. The book to be honest was a disappointment and a waste of money. I found that the songs weren't tabbed in a way you could play them. Some songs were made much more harder that they ought to be. For example there are occasions when power chords were tabbed when it was obvious kurt was strumming the guitar. Notice this book isn't tabbed by Nirvana, its been tabbed by someone else and is subsequently their opinion how the songs are played. However the illustrations are good, and some of the songs have been tabbed correctly. There are better Nirvana books out there, leave this one alone.
