Come As Your Are Chords & Guitar Lesson

Welcome to my Come As You Are riff lesson by Nirvana. This is more of bass lesson but this was one of the first things I learned to play on my guitar that I found fun and enjoyable. This bass line is played for a very good portion of the song, so you can really get a lot out of it. It only requires you using a couple of the bass strings on the guitar and a few frets.

Take a listen to the video below to learn how to play Come As You Are by Nirvana.

Come As Your Are Guitar Lesson:

Now the video on the left is my updated lesson video for this song, but the one on the left is from 2011. I had only been teaching guitar for a year. Can you believe it! So the video might be a little grainy but you will get a sneak peek into my original home studio that I used to teach out of. Pretty cool.
