Guitar TAB Songs

NEW WHAT CHILD IS THIS? Here is a beautiful Christmas song about the birth of Christ in a minor key. Its tune is adapted from the old folk tune "Greensleeves." I have always loved playing "Greensleeves" as an instrumental tune, but this is also a wonderful song to sing at this special time of year. A song "tag" is a short phrase that is "tagged" to the end of a song; often it is just the last couple of bars or last line of the song repeated. Here is a TAG line for the ending-- it is the last line with a twist-- complete with an alternate arpeggio in place of the two notes at the END. WHITE CHRISTMAS Here is the beautiful song "White Christmas" by Irving Berlin, made famous by Bing Crosby in the film of the same name. A few guitar notes: (this also applies to other songs, including the one above) This song is arranged in the "Key of D"-- this is a new key for some of us, but it involves many familiar chords, with only a few "new" ones (see below). When a chord is shown in --(parentheses)-- this is meant to indicate an optional chord. Actually, these ARE part of the song, but as a Beginner Guitarist, it is possible to play with or without these particular chords. I have included the "beat" or rhythm under each line of the song. This will probably help you play as you follow the individual beats in the song. There are a couple of new or different chords in this song. Both of them fall under that category of "optional" chords. But here they are--- they are a bit more difficult than most of the chords we've played. But they are still playable. If you are a beginner, feel free to skip over these. If you are a serious or experienced player, you will want to challenge yourself to TRY to learn them. The diminished chords are a four-finger chord which also has an unusual characteristic. It is one of the few chords which has equal intervals between notes. This causes it to be moveable. Every three frets, the notes in the diminished chord realign or "inverted" and therefore, the chord name changes, based on the Root note. The G Minor here is an abbreviated version of a full Barre chord, based on the Emin chord. The optional bass note CAN be played with the thumb, while the index finger "barres" the three strings. Theoretically, these three notes can be played with three different fingers (similar to how some players fret the "A" chord), but this mini--barre is much easier, once you fight through and get comfortable with it.

Guitar TAB Songs

YESTERDAY is one of the most popular songs of all time. Besides the original recording by Paul McCartney and The Beatles, it has been covered over 2,200 times by other musicians. In 1999, a BBC Radio poll voted YESTERDAY the "Best Song of the 20th Century", and MTV and Rolling Stone named it the #1 Pop Song of all time. One very interesting detail about the song's origin is that the tune for YESTERDAY came to Paul McCartney in a dream. He awoke, and after playing it on a piano, was convinced that he had stolen it from another song. However, after a few weeks, his fears resolved, he penned the lyrics. This also was the first use of other musicians (a string quartet) along with a Beatles recording. You have probably been getting comfortable with a lot of Major chords, and a few Minor and Seventh (7th) chords by now. YESTERDAY, along with a few other songs we've been learning, introduces a Major 7th (Fma7) and a couple of Minor 7th chords. With a bit of explanation, they shouldn't be a major (or minor) problem for you. Here are the "new" chords in YESTERDAY. You've probably seen some of these before, the Bm7 recently in "Sunshine on My Shoulders", in which we added another note in the chord. If you're NOT the analytical type-- then please just ignore the following. If you ARE the analytical type-- here, the Bm7 naturally moves into the E7 chord. The Bm7 here resembles an E7sus4 chord, the only difference being the BASS note (here, we used a "B" instead of playing the open "E" string). Oftentimes, just changing one note of a chord, sometimes the Bass note, changes the entire chord. In the last two lines [the bridge] there are two instances of rapid chord changes, from Am--G--Fma7. Each chord is only played one beat or strum. This may be too difficult for you at this time. If it is, use a shortcut by playing an Am with a G bass (Am/G) instead of the full G chord. This can also be used on the first line of the song, when going from Am to Fma7. NOTE: Sometimes chords are appended or changed, usually to accommodate an extra note. Often, this is the bass note. Sometimes it is a note on the higher end. You will see these chords designated in two ways. Either you will see a Plus (+) sign, as in C+9, or Cadd9, or you will see a chord with a Slash (/), as in this chord-- Am/G. The slash usually indicates an ALTERNATE BASS note. Normally, the Am chord is played with an "A" bass. A chord's bass note normally corresponds to the name of the chord. For example, C is normally played with a "C" bass note, D with a "D" bass note, G with a "G" bass note. But here a Slash (/), followed by an alternate note, indicates the use of a different bass note. There are two ways to play the Am/G chord. Here are the chord diagrams for them. The Am chord is shown on the Left, and the two versions of Am/G are shown on the RIght. I prefer the chord diagram in the middle. It only involves THREE fingers, instead of FOUR. It does involve moving your 3rd (ring) finger from the 3rd string to the 6th (top) string. For me, that is NOT so difficult. It may be more difficult for you-- at first. The more you play and practice it, the easier and more comfortable it will become. Try both-- and I think you'll agree that the middle chord is easier too. The open strings sound better. And you will NOT have to use your pinky finger!
