i guess this isnt a lesson but some easy notes, power chords, and stuff from songs tht i learned early:
this 1 is just some power chords from rock you like a hurricane, scorps. the power chords are easy and will help your fingers nimble up so u can play real chords and bar chords. btw if u got an amp turn it on and use distortion.
to those begginers that dont know what a power chord is, its a root note shown as r after the root note. the other note is 3 frets away on the next higher string. some power chords are played with another note after tht which is 3 frets away 2 strings from the root note.(it doesnt matter if you mute other notes because your not using them. for another beginning with power chords look up under the song section here and go to wild thing by the troggs
before the next tab here are some commen symbols used in tabs:
/ slide up(slide up to the note like 5/7
\ slide down(slide down to the note like 7\5
~ vibrate (vibrate on tht note, make it sound longer and vibrating, also shown as v)
r root note(root note of a power chord
h hammer on (hitting a note w/o strumming it, makes it sound faster, like 5h7
p pull off (pulling off a note w/o strumming, makes it faster, like 7h5
^ bend up half step (half step is just the next fret from the fret ur bending) bend with 3 fingers its easyer) (bend the acctuall string half step)
^^ bend full step (2 frets) (bend actuall string full step)
x isnt played
(bends are also written like this: b which means the same bend)
the next tab is from the beatles day tripper. its easy but kinda fast, take it slower then speed up. it is a good song and gets ur fingers moving
you do tht a couple times and then do it on the string higher on the a.
since every 1 knows these next songs or most people know them, and they are easy, ill add them
sunshine of your love by cream
iron man by black sabbath
iron man can also be played with power chords.
just cause i feel like it and i have nothing 2 do with my life ill add some easy open chords
and ill keep them on the same tab since im too lazy 2 make more
im almost positive that im mostly right on this lesson its my first 1, tell me if im rong on anything
acoustic beginner, just started playing
Ironically enough, you spelt 'wrong' well...'rong' it needs a w at the start. I don't really care and it makes no difference and also looks really geeky me saying this but it was such a delicious irony!
lol true i was typing fast, and i cant spell, anyway u no wut i mean. u like the lesson tho? its just some songs n stuff tht i played when i got bored of failing at chords
On your G maj. chord, your B sring is open not on the third fret.
u can play it either way im pretty sure its the same
you can play either the G or the F#. Playing the G gives the chords more depth in my opinion. F# isnt what would make the chord G major, the B is the major 3rd and that is why the chord is G major. So you dont have to play the F#.
Yeah you can actually play it open(B) or on the third fret (D). It doesn't really matter.
shit i meant D hehe...my bad. But...there is F# in Gmaj. (G A B C D E F#) there's no F# in the chord...if thats what you meant. if there was, it would be a Gmaj7
Yeah they were taking about the chord not the Key :p and yes your your right it would be a Gmaj7th
U know rock me like a hurricane can be played at twelve to prevent confusion in strings and its played with high gain, drive, reverb and delay... sounds a little better
