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.

If you don't know how to read tabs go here:

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

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.

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/s/shinedown/simple_man_ver2_tab.htm

Try my version, the bridge sounds exactly like the album version.

Shinedown- 3rd (best) version

Yeah, I know I'm promoting my own tab. It won't help me anyway, 'cause I was having problems logging in when I submitted it. So now I don't get UG points when someone rates my tab. It really ticks me off

If a mod can fix it somehow, I would really appreciate it .

^Smoke on the Water is easy, sounds good, but it's not all that impressive. Try Californication by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It's an instant classic, fairly simple, and it's more impressive.

Californication (best tab)

^This tab is almost perfect. It's what I used to learn the song. The solo is messed up, though, so if you can't find someone else's version of the solo that sounds good enough, PM me, and I'll tab it out for you.

i think this one has to be the best http://www.mxtabs.net/tab_versions.php?path=Guitar,r,1053,Red+Hot+Chili+Peppers,Californiacation,165818

It is right, in the intro, the bass plays the twiddly bits, not the guitar, which most tabs have put.

No, I disagree with you there. If you listen really close, you can tell that the guitarist plays the 'twiddly bits', but the bassist DOES back him up. You're version is okay, but it's not exactly right: the intro (as I was saying) is messed up; the chords are wrong (the lead guitarist's style is based around the 4 middle strings: B, G, D, and A; at least when he plays chords); and the solo is screwed up.

You know what, when I get some extra time, I'll tab out the song myself and submit it to this site. Until then, stick with with my link HERE .When I submit it, I'll post here and let you guys know .

A very easy song is Brand New's "Flying at Tree Level". It may or may not have the Version 1.0 after it, I'm not sure. Awesome song, and very easy to play.

Every tab has either written it in an awkward way to play, or has just got one or two notes wrong, but from memory I'm pretty sure this way is 99.999% right.
