Ive been playing now for seven months but in actually about three to four because of school getting in the way. I wanna improve but i dont wanna do the same old stuff like scales. Does anyone know of a site that has tab's of decent songs (preferably rock but other songs will do) that are easy to learn and help build self confidence.
WWSD? What would stevie do?

I really like MXtabs.net,(not a plug) they have songs from any style of music, and they are rated by the users. So in that case you can always check to see the best one.
Remember me.

Check out ACDC...They have great songs for beginners...or even early Black Sabbath, Ted Nugent (Cat Scratch Fever was one of the first songs I ever learned to play), Even Danzig is great for beginners as well.
I started learning guitar because of Randy Rhoads..but Yngwie J. Malmsteen is my biggest influence.

Good old metallica should do the trick.

Try songs like Fade to black, Orion, Call of Ktullu, About every song from the black album too. They have some harder song but in general their stuff is not so hard. Like anything else, it takes practice. Tehy always have at least one easy riff per song, take your pick.

I'm from the generation that actually bought the tab books! You should be able to find them on the net anyway but buying those books is a good investment, I learned a lot with them. I recommmend Ride the lightning and the black album for beginners.

Yeah I'm from that generation too (I'm 30). I have a ton of tab books.

As far as Metallica goes...definately Kill 'Em All (the first album) is great for beginners.

Seek and Destroy, Am I Evil, are probably the easiest to learn and are definately a blast to play. My band will sometimes play those songs for fun during practice. We're all from the same generation and like a lot of the same music.

really there should be no set time. People learn at different paces. The more you practice the faster you'll get there. Don't get discouraged and keep your head up hi

C´mon now guys. Do you really suggest Kill Em All guitar solos for begginers. I would say KISS ACDC before Metallica.

Actually I would still say yes to the Kill 'em all solos for beginners...it's all pentatonic and blues scales. My little brother (He's 25) is a die hard Metallica fan and the first song he ever mastered was "Am I evil". I also gave him pointers along the way and gave him exercises to learn certain parts of the solos when he wanted to learn a part. Exercises my teatcher had once showed me.


Anyway for that matter...Any difficult technique to be learned on the guitar can be turned into an exercise to practice.
