Hi, I am playing the song "Smells like Teen Spirit". I have learned the song fully, but I can't seem to get the right sound? So now I am wondering...should I not use a pick? I have an Epi LP 100 going playing through a little Marshall MG10. What settings do you suggest I play at? And what pickup? Neck or bridge? Thanks,

no no. definitely use a pic. but try using the bridge pickup and get quite a bit of distortion. " D

Just try every effect and option you have on your amp. I just mess around with all my settings and gain what not and find whats good for that song

kurt is playing with a lot of corus, so, if you have corus on your amp, turn it to the max.
