Tabs/Solos For Beginners
Ok, so I get a lot of this in the forum. I'm making a thread for it. There are so rules I would like everyone to go by.. First, no spamming at all or you will be warned..Second, when you give the suggestion, please post a link to the tab. That'd make it easier to look up :) Try and make sure it's a ug tab ;) and if someone already said the song, I don't think there is a need to repeat it. I don't want a billion people saying stairway.. This should be a good way to help people who just started learn some easy somes.

yeah there is allways a thread on 'easy songs' nice work fatkidsonmopeds. :)

punk2323 08-09-2004 07:04 PM

do you guys know of any other Greenday songs (other then welcome to paradise and when i come around)that are easy or fairly easy to play ?

FatKidsOnMopeds</3 08-09-2004 07:27 PM

Most green day is easy for guitar. I suggest learning songs from the "dookie" album that's the one everyone loves the most..

TheVinesRule 08-10-2004 09:38 AM

ok lets get away from punk for a moment.

what about radiohead.

bones creep fake plastic trees just karma police

gigmaster 08-10-2004 02:51 PM

i just posted the right version of warning by greeenday and that is so fricken easy!!! it is 3 chords in pretty much the same sequence all the way though

gigmaster 08-10-2004 03:07 PM

also, good ridance (time of ur life) is 1 of my favorite songs and that is easy as hell 2. o and brain stew is cool and easy

Chris Jeremy 08-11-2004 09:26 PM

another easy green day song, one of the easiest, is Brain Stew from their insomniac album.

GoodCharloteSux 08-12-2004 11:01 AM

Butterfly-Weezer itll help with ur chords

TheVinesRule 08-12-2004 04:34 PM

lets not forget guitar isnt the only instrument talked about in this forum. there are alot beginners who play the bass as well ;)

sullivandf 08-13-2004 10:10 AM

A cool tab for beginners (like me) is Shinedown's version of Simple Man. (Link below) This tab sounds correct except at the end of the verse I think it should be an A min chord but they have the fingering messed up here. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Mescalino 08-14-2004 10:13 AM

The animals - House of the rising sun.

Easy on Guitar and verry easy on Bass!!

6stringstrummer 08-14-2004 08:36 PM

guitar for green day : hitchin a ride,poprocks and coke,good riddance,waiting,warning
bass for green day : warning, longview

sorry bass players thats all i got so far

menikmati1057 08-15-2004 02:55 PM

back to whoever asked for green day no one has mentioned it yet but i think redundant is really fun and easy to learn its all power cords except for the intro but thats easy too! have fun!

D-Bo1324 08-15-2004 11:28 PM

Andrewbiles 08-16-2004 11:51 AM

Manic Street Preachers - If you tolerate this your children will be next

EDIT: Californication by Red Hot Chili Peppers is easy as well, but I don't honestly like any of the tabs that I saw on UG

Razorlight - Golden Touch

And2001PT 08-16-2004 12:53 PM

Hey, newbie here.
Anywayz, Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes, Like a Stone by Audioslave and Adam's Song by Blink 182 are easy.

Well, they are quite simple songs, and I couldn't think of many others at the time, so I looked through some of the tabs I'd done that I know are good and quite simple, so put them up. No harm done.

Electric Six have very little talent. Harsh, I know, but makes for easy tabs.
