Phil Phillips/Cat Power – Sea of Love (Tabs)

Phil Phillips/Cat Power – Sea of Love (Tab) I first heard Sea of Love by Phil Phillips The Twilights when Cat Power covered it. I worked from the Phil Phillips version for this arrangement, but I’m sure some of the Cat Power snuck in. Intro: I’ve shortened the intro and thrown in a few twiddles. […]

Foo Fighters – Learn to Fly (Tabs)

Foo Fighters – Learn to Fly (Tab) As you expect from the Foos, Learn to Fly is a straightforward rocker. So a lot of strumming and nothing too intricate. The trickiest part comes in some of the quick switches from G to Dm. One of these shows up for the first time in bar 5. […]

Bill Withers – Grandma’s Hands (Tabs)

Bill Withers – Grandma’s Hands (Tab) Grandma’s Hands by Bill Withers. You might recognise the riff as the sample in Blackstreet’s fantastic No Diggity. Or maybe James Corden’s terrible England song. This arrangement is very simple and the tempo is slow, so this is a very approachable tab to take on. Intro: I hadn’t realised […]
