    im learning the guitar and gettin pretty damn good at it for the amount of time i put into it. I mean im not good by any means yet but i barely have time to play and can already do some shit. Im still learning all the chords and probably will continue to learn them for another year or so.

    anyone who plays can you suggest me some famous easy beginner guitar riffs? Right now all I know and all I can play is Beatles- Day Tripper and Blink 182- Damnit

    come as you are


    Ab|---------0---0---------2-----2-
    Eb|-0-0-1-2---2---2-2-1-0---0-0---

    first song i ever learned.

    you can play it in standard tuning, but it sounds better for me down a half step.

    really any green day song with exception to good riddance and a few others should take you no more than 5 minutes to figure out.

    the misfits and most early punk band's shit is very easy. learn how to use palm mutes if you haven't figured out yet. i usually just rest my pinky near the bridge of the guitar.

    Static-X and Helmet have a lot of incredibly easy, but cool sounding shit to play. mostly octave power chords.

    outshined and spoonman by soundgarden is easy, except for maybe the solo in spoonman.

    vasoline by the stone temple pilots. you have to be retarded not to be able to play the verses.

    oh, and if you want to improve on slides and shit, try Nirvana's Love Buzz. even though I think it's a cover song, but eh, who gives a fuck.

    it's moderately difficult, and don't try to fingerpick it.

    I remember Green Day - Time of our life and ehhh.. I could play a few opening lines out of certain Metallica tracks.... for whom the bell tolls, ride the lightning, fade to black, etc.

    i think you could have one week of guitar playing experience and play pretty much any recent shit by metallica with relative ease.

    i've never seen a band just completely fizzle out talent wise like that in my life.

    their first 4 albums were fucking dope.

    I gave up listening to their cds basically around Garage Inc.


    I think right about when they decided to plop an orchastra behind them, I gave up all hope.

    i used to love the black album. unforgiven was my shit.

    than i got into earlier stuff, and the black album just struck me as over produced garbage from then on.

    learn the following songs

    led zeppelin - stairway to heaven
    its just a classic song thats not hard to play but sounds good.

    jimi hendrix - purple haze
    its hard when you play it first but it gets so fucking east after like 4 minutes, and the 3 funny chords just take getting used to. and this song will teach u to use your thumb over the top of the guitar. plus its famous so everyone will think ur cool

    guns n roses - sweet child of mine. learn that riff at the beginning it will make u good at fretting at 12 to 15th fret etc

    learn loads of guns n roses was my method im not real good now but i can play loads of off riffs and tunes...

    the best thing to get started is to go

    1234
    1234
    1234
    1234

    on all the strings
    then movie up one fret

    pick downwards, then pick down up down up

    at first you wont be able to go half way but soon youl get fast and be able to go all the way to the end without your hands getting tired

    oh yeh, and learn mr brownstone, and 'its so easy' is such a fucking easy riff, you can play the whole song with one finger!!!
