On Hard and Expert, this song is based on chords. To get a good score on this song, the best thing to do would be to practice other songs based on chords (such as American Woman or the intro to Mr. Crowley, or download one from GHTunes (an example is "Above" by BaMunki)). All three of those songs are not hard and contain very good chord practice sections.

On Bass, the song is very easy, as it is on one of the first few tiers. Most of the song is either the pattern open, open, open, long green, green green green, etc, or green, red, yellow, blue, red, open. It repeats one of those two rhythms throughout the song, and several people have Full Combo'd the song because of this.

On Drums, the song can be slightly difficult, if the player is not paying attention, due to parts where the pattern goes from the simple beat to a yellow-red-yellow, rapidly. Some of the rolls can catch you off-guard too. This song is sometimes criticized for the bad chart, as people complain that the drummer for Nirvana, Dave Grohl (now the current frontman for the Foo Fighters) uses the ride, which should be an orange, which leaves out the crashes.

On Vocals, the song is fairly easy, as most Nirvana songs are easy to sing. There are a few slightly high notes, but mostly just regular singing.
