    So I guess we should get a thread started for this even though we basically only have one song worth learning so far.

    How do people like learning this stuff? Do people use tabs still? Do videos help?



    I did a quick take with my phone after getting out of bed (so don't criticize too much ha), but if this helps people learn, I'll do the whole song with better sound/video quality along with the tabs.

    EDIT: Here's the full tabs for "Don't You Worry" for you MCs. I'll probably revise this whenever we can actually see this song played live which will help me with accuracy. Solo is exactly how I play it in the video above.

    YouTube demonstrations, by ear, software like Guitar Pro which are like automated tabs (basic tablature doesn't have timing notated), etc.

    The rare times I go to look up normal basic tabs for songs, I can hardly find anything that isn't programmed or require software.

    I wish there were more just straight up tabs. I never wanna learn a song I don't know so I can get the timing from the song. And most of the software things cost money through subscriptions which is not ideal.

    Little change ups to the timing of a song are one of the most enjoyable change-ups for an amateur musician to tinker around with. Thus, I couldn't care less to get the timing of a song just right.

    Fully agreed regarding the loss of Tabs

    Exactly. Also I don't know how to play guitar, and have little stubby sausage fingers. But it's bullshit that the modern internet doesn't know how to make me able to play anything I want.

    I used to learn guitar based on what came in my guitar world.

    Not tabbing out each individual note, but i can at least do the chords

    CROSSFIRE

    Intro (0:00 until Nick starts rapping)

    d---5-----5-----8--6--5-----5-----8--6---
    a---5-----5-----8--6--5-----5-----8--6---
    e---3-----3-----6--4--3-----3-----6--4---

    obviously there is palm muting in between

    Intro continued (Nick rap)

    d---5-----6--3--5-----10--8--6---
    a---5-----6--3--5-----10--8--6---
    e---3-----4--1--3-----8----6--4---

    Still palm muting a lot

    Pre-chorus

    Multiple guitars; here's the tab for one

    g----12--13--12----*12-12--12--13--12*---

    repeat the asterisk part a however many times and transition to

    g--12--13--12----12--13--12---

    again, repeat a few times and transition to

    g--11-12-13-12-11-12-13-12---

    repeat until 1st chorus

    1st chorus

    Definitely not sure at all so subject to change and could be 100% wrong; so far I have

    d---5---6---5---5--5---5---6---5--
    a---5---6---5---3--3---5---6---5--
    e---3---4---3---3--3---3---4---3-- x3

    and then end phrase on

    d---7---
    a---5---
    e---5---

    SA verse is the same as the pre-chorus

    2nd Chorus

    d---5-----6--3--5-----10--8--6---
    a---5-----6--3--5-----10--8--6---
    e---3-----4--1--3-----8----6--4---

    d---5-----6--3---3----5--7--3---
    a---5-----6--3---1----3--5--3---
    e---3-----4--1---1----3--5--1---

    I “taught” in a guitar shop for a few years in college. Hours of kids and teens coming in with cassettes to have me show them how to play or write out tabs of their favorite tunes. Almost all of them had zero interest in learning about music or how to do what I was doing for them. It’s been a pebble in my shoe ever since.:(

    It is a skill I never acquired. I would love to have it.
