OTHER Easy Guitar Songs

I will try to add a new tabs for popular melodies (songs) every week. Each tutorial contains:

  1. Tabs for one (single?) string;
  2. A record how the melody sounds.

Why do this tutorials need? Someone might say that they are “uninteresting”, but I think that melodies on one (single?) string are very useful for beginners, because:

  1. Melodies on 1 string can motivate you as a guitarist.
  2. Melodies on one string develop your able to “hear” music.
    Due to the fact that we constantly use one string, we are getting used to its sounding in different frets. After a while you will learn to distinguish the frets by the sound of the string.

  17. So, I saw u don’t have la grange, by ZZ Tip and I made tabs for it. U can add it but write my name in the description
    Play on low E string. In parentheses play on A string
    0-0-0-0-0-0-0-3-5×4 (play it 4 times)
    And if u want after that u can add the main riff
    3-3-3-3-3-3-3-(3)-(5)×4 and u have it

  18. How do you play the songs that have parenthesis for a second string on a 1-string instrument? I thought the whole point of the site was to have tabs for 1 string :\

  19. Hey can you make some tabs on any Oasis songs. I don’t have any preferences, just whatever would be easiest to play on one string

  20. I am new to playing the guitar. I am trying to find an easy way for me to learn. From what I see from your website, I do like it. Plus the fact that you use only one string to play! That is so cool.

  21. Love this site, everything is very easy to understand and the recordings help a lot! For a suggestion, maybe something by My Chemical Romance? Maybe the intro to Welcome to the Black Parade, or maybe part of Helena, or I’m Not Okay, or maybe even Na Na Na?

  22. Hi- your site has been very helpful!
    Have you ever considered adding any Jimmy Buffett songs? Margaritaville on one string might be fun!

  23. Please, add the song Every Breath You Take by The Police.
    Obs: Add Is This Love by Whitesnake too hahaha.

  24. Gospel songs please
    Amazing Grace
    Washed by the blood
    At the cross
    Leaning on the everlasting arms
    Praise him
    At Calvary
