I hope this isn't here already, I've searched the forum and couldn't find anything similar.
So, any one here playing guitar? I'm playing for 4 years but found myself knowing just a few NIN songs on guitar. Mainly because NIN isn't particulary guitar oriented band, but there are some songs that sound really great on guitar. I've covered Last (http://goo.gl/7LifXT) and thinking of learning Burn, but I'm not quite sure how the guitar goes in this song, especially in chorus. Is there someone who knows how to play this?
Other song which I think is great on guitar is Big Come Down, but I have no idea how to create a sound like that.

I'm a guitar player of 12+ years, done the whole start a band thing and also played a few places on my own. I've explored a few songs from the great TR, best part is there are many ways you can play it depending on acoustic or electric. When it comes to Burn or Big Come Down, I haven't ventured into those just yet. But PM me if you want my take on em. I typically figure things out by ear.

Several NIN songs can be easier to play in drop-D, if that helps. I still play them in standard, though. I learned most of the riffs through Ultimate Guitar tabs. A lot of them don't sound quite right, but sometimes it's hard to know for sure, given TR's production tactics.

As far as chorus for Burn goes, this is how I think it's played, it sounds decent enough, but I'm not sure if I've got it 100% right
