Re: songs


Just on the topic of Foo Fighters - Ive also just done a pile of their stuff with one boy:

-Everlong, Long Road to Ruin (Great for F barre chord),

-Best of You - (easy power chord type shape and A and B in there as well)

-Times Like These 9Acoustic) great for showing those "extras" on chords adding fingers to C and Am7 etc...

-Another Round(used it to introduce Dm and also Cm open shape on the third fret).

- Monkey Wrench - again great for Drop and B5 power chord...

Foo Fighters have actually a pile of great songs for teaching the basics as well as more tricky stuff.

And to get right up to date doing 2 Black Keys songs at the minute - Gold On The Ceiling and also another one called "Thick Freakness" both good riffs and power chord combinations.

Ok Dave,

Jez- I thought that would have been an obscure one - tabs were a bit off in places - but worked through the track slowed down to get the riffs etc.. - this guy seems to be enjoying it anyway... emoticon

Re: songs


If you teach teenage girls, you will be the best guitar teacher on the planet if you teach them a one direction song. Im not sure if its worth it though lol

Re: songs


Here’s a few

Chasing Cars by Coldplay – fairly simple with open high E string as pedal note on the verse. Chorus chords are simple A, E and D with very simple strumming pattern.

Everybody hurts by REM – Good for relatively simple finger picking

Light up by Snow Patrol – fairly easy slash chords, with easy descending sliding note line on the verses. Simple strumming pattern for chorus with the F chord also.

Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana – not too difficult for learning finger picking

Breaking the Law by Judas Priest – Good for beginner / intermediates who want to Rock.

Cissy Strut by the Meters – Nice funky riff for intermediates

Re: songs


Here are just a few of the many songs I use to teach guitar:

Hymn (Paul Stookey) good confidence builder for new fingerpickers - easy

Sweet Home Alabama - good for intermediate students - catchy - teaches existing riffs

Smoke on the Water (riff only) all on string 6. For the young beginner - super.

Hope this helps somebody out there!
