Thread: Guitar Tabs

  1. #1

    Default Guitar Tabs

    Hey.

    After trying the basic learners book, I would like to intersperse chord and basic rif training with some actual tunes.

    I don't know what would be best to experiment on:

    Beatles
    Zep
    Floyd
    Green Day
    Clash
    Creedence?
    Morrisen? (Just not B.E.G. I have heard enough of THAT on Light FM!!!!!)

    Any suggestions would be welcomed. I really need a few songs to practice chord progression on......

    Go to youtube and type in a band or a song and add "lesson" at the end.
    Also, just search a song and scroll down through and look for such things as "how to play", "opening riff", etc..
    It is up to you to find what you are able to (comfortable) learn(ing).

    Hi 5150!

    Yeah, Well, I lost that Green Day tune you posted on here, and the Floyd one as well (I thought it would be safe here... ).

    Any suggestions on some simple popular strummers? I always try to remember them when I am listening on the way to and from work, but by the time I get home I almost always forget what I was listening to (specifically).

    TAB

    TAB is very easy to find-google a song and add "tab" to the end.
    Just remember most tabs are not accurate but will get you started.

    Don't forget http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/. Like 5150 said, accuracy can vary wildly, but it is nice to have a bunch of them all on one site for easier searching.

    Get Guitar pro and search gtp files. Guitar pro play the partition for you and shows you exactly how to play the tune on your guitar and how your guitar need to be tuned. Nothing can be easier.

    Green day play open string so it is very very easy.
    Clash is easy too.

    Beatle, Led zep, Floyd that depend the the song. Led zep solo can be hard but not the main rill. Beatles can be very hard in some songs if you try to play the song exactly like Harisson. Floyd can be hard sometimes too but they play very slow so everyone can play those songs at home but on the stage that can be tricky.

    Thanks peeps.

    The key here is that I would like to find a few things to tool around with....

    Are there any particular chords I should look for? The ones in the book so far, if I can remember them, are:

    D
    D7
    Dm
    A
    A7
    Am
    G
    C
    B7
    E
    E7
    Em
    F-Bar
    I think I am missing one, but that is what I have been practicing so far.....

    Oh, "When I Come Around" acoustic just came on the shuffle.....

    And Live's "The Beauty of Grey" was on earlier....


    No time to search the world around
    Because you'll know where I'll be found......

    I just thought of something....

    It would be useful to have a Tabs D-base where you could put the chords you know into it and it would filter the list accordingly (all inclusive, all within selected, whatever).

    It would be really handy to put in 4 or 5 chords you are comfortable with and can switch easily through and see what songs are around that would be able to be played using them!

    When I Come Around--can't get any easier than this.
