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. […]

Pixies – Here Comes Your Man (Tabs)

Pixies – Here Comes Your Man (Tab) Intro: The classic Here Comes Your Man riff. Played with a few extra supporting notes to beef it up. Verse: Nothing too challenging here. Just open chords until the build up into the pre-chorus. Pre-Chorus: Bars 24-25 are the trickiest part of the song. There’s a big leap […]

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 […]

Willie Nelson – Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain (Tabs)

Willie Nelson – Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain (Tab) Despite the the pleas of Al Ferrier, here’s a tab of Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain. Dozens of people have recorded the song since Fred Rose wrote it in 1946. But this arrangement is based on the definitive version by Willie Nelson. Intro: Matching […]

KT Tunstall – Black Horse & the Cherry Tree (Tabs)

KT Tunstall – Black Horse & the Cherry Tree (Tab) A tab of KT Tunstall’s breakthrough hit Black Horse & the Cherry Tree. It’s a very propulsive song even in the very sparse sections. So in the verses, where it’s just the melody line, I’m using strum blocking to keep the energy up. The verse […]

Joni Mitchell – Big Yellow Taxi (Tabs)

Joni Mitchell – Big Yellow Taxi (Tab) Here’s something to play at the Big Yellow Joint this weekend: Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi. Intro: A cool strummy riff to start off with. Verse: Like a lot of Joni’s songs, there are a lot of words crammed in. So you’ll need some quick alternate picking to […]
