Smells Like Teen Spirit – Nirvana
Drum chart for Dave Grohl’s awesome drumming on “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana.
Drum chart for Dave Grohl’s awesome drumming on “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Released in 1991, this song took Nirvana to the top of the charts in 1992 and marked the beginning of the grunge era. It’s also the only Nirvana song to credit all three band members as authors, so hopefully drummer Dave got some dimes for his performance.
This drum transcription is full of fast doubles on the kick drum, open hi-hats, and riding on crash cymbals as hard as possible. Quiet verses and loud choruses make for a very fun drum tab to play and a good way to practice dynamics.
