Playing the guitar...
    #2653042 - 05/08/04 12:33 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I play the guitar.  I've done so before, but I've only played punk and I dont know to many acchords.  I played in a punk band, but its been a while and I've picked it up again but now more interested in playing other songs.  My question is this,
does anybody know the tabs to any good grateful dead songs for starters (preferrably a song with solo).
I'm also looking for mexican like songs... you know those mexican fingerplay tunes... I love them and I would die to be able to play like that, anybody know any tabs to start with playing music like that?  I dont even know the name of that genre, so I cant search, does anybody know?

BTW...
I've started up with my band again (who are cool about playing any type of music) and through our last session we decided to break the barrier of punk and just play what is our signature style of playing and jam on that... just to have our own thing going.
We ended up with a style of music which can be most described as acid rock... with a slight slow punk twist (more grungy)... but mostly sleepy slow solo jamming that sounded like arab music.  We are gonna rename our band and maybe call it, Arabian Acid :grin:
Its a test and we'll see how it goes... wish us luck :grin:.  I want more acid rock knowledge and mexican fingerplay knowledge to contribute to our new way of playing music basically.

I don't know any good tab sites. I mainly just play chords. I go to rukind.com a lot. Maybe you should try to learn how to play from listening because it may be hard to find tab on Jerry's solo improvs.

I cant play for shit from listening yet. I dont see how that is possible, I hope it is though.

Do you know any good guitar sites where they give information about chords and how to learn them and such and so... basically a site teaching about guitar basics.

All I've played is one chord (which I play anywhere on the guitar when I'm playing punk)... and I'm picking up solo's that I'm improvising.

Well actually I use rukind.com if I need to look up a chord. Click on chord finder and then enter any chord and it'll show you the fingering. Some songs I like to play from that site are Althea (notice the intro/main riff is tabbed out for you), Black Throated Wind (a pretty wide variety of chords in that one), Jack Straw, Let it Grow, and I could go on.

Also you might want to get a good book on scales since scales are really the basis for solos and improv playing.

Thanks.

I'm working on the regular (blues?) scale with all 4 fingers or 3 moving up and down the strings anywhere on the guitar. Isnt that what all scales are based upon though?

Anyway, thanks for the listing of songs... I'm checking them out.

There is a wide variety of scales but I think you're talking about the pentatonic scale, which is the standard for blues and rock. I'm no expert though.

I'll check out on other scales.
