Welcome back! Today I wanna show you one of the coolest and easy song guitar tabs ever.
What I’m about to show you is probably one of the most popular songs ever;; you’ve probably

planet who hasn’t listened to this song.

Sounds familiar right? Well it is the progression of Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana;; one of the
greatest bands ever. They are the ones who popularized Grunge back in the 90’s;; they are the
ones who inspired millions of people around the world with this simple but yet deeply touching

The progression itself as you noticed is extremely simple;; power chords and nothing else. Now
let’s check out the rhythm for the song:

recommend using an alternate picking technique for this. Also, whenever you see the “x” just

To end this article, I wanna show another very easy guitar tab that was composed by the
legendary band Led Zeppelin. This is the intro arpeggio from the song “Stairway to Heaven”. It
features a line cliche pattern that is played on an acoustic guitar. I recommend using your
fingers to play this, forget about the pick. Here it is:


It should be played at a very low speed and don’t be afraid to take it Bar by Bar in order to learn

This is all for today. I hope you’ve enjoyed free easy song guitar tabs and please remember to check out our
