CHORD SHAPES

Welcome to Throwback Thursday’s where I teach you a classic hit from the last 4-5 decades! This week, by request, I’ll be covering a Polly Guitar Tutorial from grunge band Nirvana! Kurt Cobain actually plays this usually with power chords but i like teaching it with open chords to help develop chord changes and open chords for beginners. Chord and structure wise, this is an incredibly easy song and is based off just 5 chord shapes. 

At the end of the video i’ll be playing through the entirety of #polly with a vocal track on top for you to play along to. Enjoy! Like this #polly video by #nirvana and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!

  Polly wants a cracker
 Em G                       D          C
  I think I should get off her first
 Em G                       D     C
  I think she wants some water

  Dirty wings
D    C
  Let me take a ride
G    Bb5
  Cut yourself
D    C
  Want some my help
G    Bb5
  Please myself
D    C
  Got some rope
G    Bb5
  Have been told
D     C

Maybe she would like some food
Em G             D     C
Ask me to untie her
Em G                    D     C
A chase would be nice for a few

Polly said


[Verse]
Em G             D     C
Polly says her back hurts
Em G             D     C
She's just as bored as me
Em G             D     C
She caught me off my guard
Em G             D     C
It amazes me, the will of instinct

  Isn't me
G    A#
  Have a seed
D    C
  Let me clip
G    Bb5
  Dirty wings
D    C
  Let me take a ride
G    Bb5
  Cut yourself
D    C
  Want some my help
G    Bb5
  Please myself
D    C
  Got some rope
G    Bb5
  Have been told
D     C
  I promise you
