View Full Version : The ultimate guitar/bass song recommendation thread

03-10-2008, 04:19 PM
I just started going in the music forum this week so I don't know if these are allowed or not. Just name a song to play on any instrument pretty much, say it's difficulty level(I guess on a scale of 1-10 1 being like smoke on the water and 10 being really hard shred like yngwie or someone. Also make sure to post a tab for the song so it's easy to get too preferably from www.ultimate-guitar.com. Hopefully everyone finds some new songs to play out of this.

I'll start with a fun song. It's about a 5 I guess to get down the rhythms and stuff and even if you don't like playing chords try the intro, it's really cool and pretty easy. Good song if your starting to progress
into intermediate playing. http://ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/r/red_hot_chili_peppers/under_the_bridge_tab.htm

I use bass masta. It has a really nice warm up tab that I've been using for a while.

Wow, I just realized I named the thread the ultimate guitar.... whatever. It had nothing to do with the website. Anyways anyone know any intermediate songs with a semi easy guitar solo. The only solo I know right now if the stairway to heaven one so something around that skill level give or take. Also any songs that kinda combine the lead guitar and rhythm guitars also in intermediate skill level.

Heres two fun songs to play in the 4-5 range by a band I never listen to anymore but I like playing the guitar from it. http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/b/billy_talent/pins_and_needles_tab.htm and http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/b/billy_talent/this_suffering_ver4_tab.htm

One last thing, does anyone have a good link to a lesson or have any tips on tremolo picking because I can't pick very fast but want to learn. Will it make it hard because I am healing from a broken wrist and can't move it very fast or is it better to use the whole are technique. Should I wait until it's healed so I can just use my wrist and not develop a bad habit?

can you play that? It's such a sick song.

Me playing a 14 min long song from probably technically the most advanced band on earth with a 7-string dropped down 2 steps?

I wish hahaha
