hello.

im trying to find a song to learn to play cause right now im completely out of songs i like or have heard of.....kind of.

first off im not that good. i dont know shiit about musical theory or scales. i know how to read tabs though.

second off. ive been playing for about 5 months, so im not that amazingly shred tastic

third. i can do basic power chords and barre chords, so i can do that.

4th, im kinda of into the more heavy stuff like metal, hard rock, punk rock, metalcore alternative and kinda pop rock and all that. i basically listen to all that remains, disturbed, rise against, green day, yellowcard, simple plan and everything

EDIT: happy

I'd say at 5 months it's time to learn a couple scales. Give the Major and Minor Pentatonic scales and the blues scale a whirl. It'll expand your playing dramaticly and let you go beyond playing songs, not to mention when you run across a scale in a song or solo, you'll recognize it and know where to go without needing a tab.

if you're already used to chords/power chords, look for songs with single note riffs in them, and work on those. even though you can only read tabs, there's likely to be tabbed out scales. Scales are important, you'll actually understand why and how certain notes sound well together, instead of just doing guesswork.

Writing your own stuff is way more fun than just playing material that's already been thought of.

edit: as for people suggesting specific songs to you....it's better for you to just find out what you enjoy, rather than people telling you what to play.
