Best Songs To Play On Guitar.

Recommended Posts

I'm talking about riffs galore, lots of nice little sounds, not extremely hard.

I don't really like Metallica, but a friend told me Seek And Destroy is a fun song to play, so i tried it and love playing it.

Thanks, Dan

I´m helping my husband now with Creedence Clearwater Revival... "Looking out my back door" and "Lodi"...it´s very simple but it does rock!

I always make punk covers of stuff like "there´s a kind of hush" or "96 Tears"...

i'm just learning right now so my opinion is unlikely to hold much importance but i got this great feeling of accomplishment when i played E and G and got a sound vaguely resembling the opening of 'about a girl'...must move further now! ::

Sweet Home Alabama

Wish You Were Here- Pink Floyd

From The Beginning- Emerson Lake and Palmer

Jessica- Allman Brothers

Fixing A Hole- Beatles

Stairway To Heaven

Dazed and Confused

That's all I've got. I'm sure I'll think of more later.

At the Action Music I go to for gear and lessons half of the songs named were banned from being played within the store, such as:

Sweet Home Alabama

Anything by Metalica, Korn and similar artists

Stairway to Heaven

Iron Man

and the list goes on for a total of 13

as well as tapping! (Unless your Eddie Vanhalen himself a sign reads)

And for a change of pace...

Traction in the Rain('71)

by David Crosby

A6 A11 A6 A7sus2 A6 A11 A6 A7sus2 A6

It's hard enough, I know

A11

To find the strength to go

A6 A7sus2

Back to where it all began

A6

It's hard to enough to gain

A11

Any traction in the rain

A6 A7sus2

You know its hard for me to understand

CHORUS #1:

Am7 F#m7+5/A

Hard to find a way

Am7 F#m7+5/A

To get through another city day

Am7 F#m7+5/A

Without thinking about

Am7 F#m7+5/A A6

Gettin' out

Now the strangest thing I've seen

Was a t-shirt turning green

In envy of turtle dove

The dove's lady was the cause

Or maybe it was the olive branch she held in her claws

Or maybe he could see they were in love

CHORUS #2:

You know it's hard for me to find a way

To get through another city day

Without thinking about

Gettin' out

CHORDS:

A6: 0 0 11 11 10 0 A11: 0 0 12 12 12 0 A7sus2: 0 0 9 9 8 0

Am7: 0 0 5 5 5 5 F#m7+5/A: 0 0 7 7 7 7

NOTE: Immediately after each F#m7+5/A return to Am7 position and hammer on

a note from the 5th fret to 7th fret on the 4th string

_ _ _ _ _

also, get a Rolling Stones songbook,

you'll flip out on the chord progressions.

Man it has been forever since I've posted here.

Alter Bridge - Find The Real

Make sure you you tune down half a step and use drop D tuning, C# in this case. This song is fun to play just because it's so melodic and heavy at the same time.

Rage Against the Machine -

Killing In The Name A really cool riff.

Depending on your hit on / pull off skills, you might be able to play Lynyrd Skynyrd - I know a little

|---------5-5-|---------5-5----6--5--|---------5-5-|---------5-5---6--5-|

|-----5-7-----|-----5-7--------6--5--|-----5-7-----|-----5-7-------6--5-|

|-5-6---------|-5-6------------7--6--|-5-6---------|-5-6-----------6--5-|

|-------------|----------------6--5--|-------------|---------------5--4-|

|-------------|----------------8--7--|-------------|---------------6--5-|

|-------------|----------------6--5--|-------------|--------------------|

Soundgarden - Fell on Black Days

You might be able to play the beginning of The Satch's - Satch Boogie

Good luck with your guitar playing. :rockon:

Do a punk version of Wooley Bully...you'll love it.

It is extremely fun to bang out You Really Got Me, All Day and All of the Night, Where have All The Good Times Gone" Old Kinks stuff still rocks.

Download Power Tabs and you'll never look back. You can write your own tabs on the site and print out. You can look up the tabs to any song, download, press play and the site plays back how the tabs should sound, highlighting each note as it's played. Also try Wholenote.com for lessons, tabs, create your own songs, etc.
