Probably the wrong forum.

Also, depends if you play electric w/distortion, or clean or acoustic.

But to help you out, Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana... and I dunno. Look up your favorite songs here on UG, then look and see if there's a "Chords" version. That's all I did for my first 8 months o so of playing, acoustic versions of my fav songs using chords. Not really productive, but fun.

Well what type of bands do you like? No point in us recommending certain bands that you dont like.

Try some ac/dc stuff... The rythm parts are usually quite simple, but of course they have their share of difficult material too...

take a look at "you shook me all night long" for example quite easy
Gibson Les Paul Standard
Takamine G Series 6&12 string accoustics

Marshall JCM 800 50w 1987 (4 input)
Marshall 1936 Cab

Jim Dunlop CryBaby
MXR 10 band EQ

Green day - Wake me up when September ends
Guns 'n Roses - Knocking on Heavens door Acoustic version

Start with them two first. Really easy.

Figure a list of slow songs that seem easy from your favorite bands. Look at all their tabs and find out the ones that you think you could play, and give it a try. If you're having a hard time on easy songs, slow it down a bit and practice.

Back in Black minus solo - AC/DC


I have no idea why, but I could never play that little lick after the 3 main chords (G-E-D-Bb-A-G or whatever it is). I've been playing for years and can pretty much play any riff or solo out of the '80s, but the timing of that riff still throws me off. Its like a tounge twister for me or something...

But if you are into Metal, try the main riff from Iron Man from Black Sabbath.

Or Scorpions Rock You Like a Hurricain.

Power Chords!

for a second i thought you were trying to tell me those were the chords, not the lick. I was about to point out that getting the timing of the song was the least of your worries.

Hey thanks everyone for those suggestions. I think I'd like more indie rock/alternative stuff than metal stuff though. Maybe some dub stuff too.

Much appreciated though. This is a cool website.
