totally agree with you, he wasnt the best at guitar, but he had talent in songwriting, i think if you can write a deep song that is very touching to everyone thats what matters, now how fast you can shred and suchlolligagger said:Ouch...perhaps he wasn't technically brilliant, but you have to admit he had a talent for creating catchy hooks and interesting chord progressions. Lots of energy and passion in the songwriting too.
I recall flipping channels a few years back seeing him on some awards show, or whatever it was playing All Apologies solo acoustic. Although I was never a big Nirvana fan, his performance held my attention (which is comparable to that of a hamster) for the duration of the song.
Before I go on...CT, did you mean liquid or solid fertilizer?
