Welcome back! Today I wanna show you some easy guitar tabs for beginners electric skills.
I remember when I first started playing guitar; I would grab my brother’s classical 6string
play “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica; well, at least the beginning which basically super easy
as no frets were involved! As time passed by, I decided I had to go to a private instructor to take
my playing to the “next level” (which basically mean learning how to actually play guitar haha).
So I went to this well known teacher that had a very interesting method; we would have 6
students or more learning at the same time, but he would call you individually and ask you for a
song that you wanted to learn and then would write it down for you, demonstrate it and explain it
to you. If the song was too complicate it, he would make a very easy version of it, so beginners
could actually play it.
Well what I wanna do right now is show you a very easy chord tab and melody tab that, if played
together, will actually sound pretty awesome! So what you can do is basically record the chords
and then play the melody over it or, call a friend and jam! Let’s check out the Chord tab:
Power chords are the easiests chords for beginners and this is why I have chosen them for this
exercise. This is a great tab to be played with some distortion on your guitar (if you own an
electric guitar), other a clean guitar will do!
The melody is very simple and it goes perfectly well with the chords. I would personally use an
alternate picking technique whenever possible, but since you are probably just starting out, you
should just play all downstrokes! Also, it could sound pretty cool with some distortion on:
This is all for today. I hope you’ve enjoyed this article and please remember to check out our
