In these six lessons you'll be learning "Heart Shaped Box" as made famous by Nirvana. This is a classic grunge tune played with plenty of dynamics and punk attitude.

We'll explore chord arpeggiation, dropped D power chord shapes, dynamics, and aggressive melodic soloing. To play this song, tune your guitar down a half step and drop the low E string another step (dropped Db tuning). We're in the key of Ab minor, a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 100 bpm.
