Surfing Bird By The Trashmen!!!!

Everyone's Heard About The Bird Ba Ba Bird Bird Bird Bird Is The Word Bird Bird Bird Is The Word

Dont You Know About The Bird?!!?!

Everyone Knows That The Bird Is The Word!!!
Here's a few pretty easy songs (or easy for me at least) from the 60s. I've included some of my personal tips. Also, there's a link to a tab and sometimes a video lesson for each; all the tabs come from UG. (UG FTW!) All tabs or video lessons are rated 5 stars, unless noted differently.

1. Rolling Stones "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" -- Nice, dirty main riff. Very catchy. Tab is here, http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/r/rolling_stones/i_cant_get_no_satisfaction_ver2_tab.htm.

2. Beatles "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" -- You may just want to do the Verse & the Bridge section, as there's 7 sections total. Sections 1 (Intro), 3 (Bridge), and 7 (Transition) are instrumental. Here's a Wiki entry on it, so you know what I mean, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sgt._Pepper's_Lonely_Hearts_Club_Band_(song). And the tab, http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/b/beatles/sgt_peppers_lonely_hearts_club_band_ver3_guitar_pro.htm.

3. Jimi Hendrix "Purple Haze" -- The verse simply goes E7#9, G7, A7. Keep in mind the live version is different & somewhat harder. Also, Jimi always tuned down 1/2 step (Low Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, & High Eb), but it still sounds great in standard tuning. You're gonna wanna crank the volume on this one too, so you get the same type of distortion effect Jimi always did. Tab is here, live version, http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/j/jimi_hendrix/purple_haze_live_tab.htm, & studio version, http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/j/jimi_hendrix/purple_haze_ver6_guitar_pro.htm. Also, here's a video lesson as well, http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/j/jimi_hendrix/purple_haze_ver2_video_lesson.htm.

4. Cream "Sunshine of Your Love" -- It'll be hard to get the main riff to sound the same way as it does when Clapton did it. He overdrove (as in went past normal overdrive distortion settings) his amp on this one, prolly by cranking the volume. But even if you can't get it to sound right, it will still sound good. Remember to milk the vibrato in the main riff as well. (It's a very even, shallow vibrato & is done very quickly. Practice by doing a long, even, shallow vibrato to get the feel right. Then, do a quick, even, shallow vibrato like Clapton does on the main riff. And remember you're gonna need that long vibrato during the solo.) The key to this song, as with all Clapton songs, is to play with a lot of "gentle feel". In other words, don't hit the notes so hard & really milk every note. Light picking (but not too light) is the goal here. And the Tab is here, http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/c/cream/sunshine_of_your_love_ver2_guitar_pro.htm, & video lesson (which is only rated 4 stars) is here, http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/c/cream/sunshine_of_your_love_video_lesson.htm.

5. The Who "The Kids Are Alright" -- Most of it is a simple I-IV-V (of G, D, & A) progession, and the chorus is a ii-V-IV-I (of Emin, A, G, D) progression. Tab is here, http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/w/who/the_kids_are_alright_tab.htm.

6. The Doors "The End" -- You might wanna end it at like 5:00 or so, cuz it goes for over 10 minutes. And last tab is here, http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/d/doors/the_end_power_tab.htm.

P. S.: You may wanna download TuxGuitar. It's a free program that reads both Guitar Pro & PowerTab formats. I absolutely love it! Makes it so much easier to have just 1 program. And...it's free...unlike Guitar Pro & PowerTab. Link is here, http://tuxguitar.herac.com.ar/download.html.
