Dude, Smells Like Teen Spirit. The solo is easier than the main riff.
And don't play guitar to impress your friends... . Just kidding.
Feel free to p.m. me if you need any help.

Well not necessarily to impress my friends. Just want to learn to play a song to get my confidence up

But yeaa, i tried smells like teen spirit and i can't get the muting down, any suggestions?

Advice: Take it slow, learn part by part. If you're struggling with one certain part of a song PRACTISE IT! Don't move forward. Make sure you can play rock solid before you continue.
Have a lot of patience and good luck my friend!

Are you muting with your palm or your fretting hand? In this case, it would be more efficient to use your fretting hand. After you play the un-muted power chords, just lift your fingers so they are still touching the strings, but not exerting any pressure. Try it out.

This. Don't just learn a series of notes, do whatever it takes to make them sound like they "should", IE; as they do in the recording. Don't consider yourself 'done' until you can play each section solidly and transition between them effortlessly. Also, practice with a metronome to develop your timing. There's a good one at www.metronomeonline.com if you can't buy one. IMHO you should always practice with a metronome, regardless of what you're actually practicing.

Best of luck!

If you've only been playing 2 months, a new guitar really won't make much of a difference. You haven't even had time to develop a playing style yet. Stick to learning your basics and wait until you have 9 months to a year under your belt before you look to upgrade. By then you'll have a better idea of what you're looking for in a guitar because you'll know very well what you *don't* like about the one you have now. Also, it'll give you a chance to save up more money and get somthing you can keep for a long time, rather then getting somthing in a rush, finding out you don't like it, and ending up stuck with it.

Be paitent, and when the time comes, make an educated decision. You'll thank yourself later.

Not by one of the artists mentioned but I just learned my first 'start to finsish' song, Glycerine by Bush. While its a very very easy song, I can play it solidly and it feels good to be able to play a song, even an easy one, really well start to finish .

Under the Bridge, Sir Psycho Sexy, Suck My Kiss, anything off of BSSM.
for Nirvana, Heart Shaped Box, Lithium, In Bloom.

if you really want to impress them (and develop some skills), learn some Voodoo Chile or Bold As Love, by Hendrix.

Good, cause I hate 'em too.

The singer sounds like he's been drinking 800,000,000,000,000,000,000 beers.
