If you wanna learn something you hae to sit down and practice to then it has to be...
Terraplane blues by the man MR. Eric Clapton!!!
Its accoustic!! And it is a must for any blues musician for accoustic!!

I've recently been learning some Elliot Smith songs - they are excellent if you like finger picking (which I do!). The two main ones I have been learning of late are:
Angeles
and
Memory Lane

Ok, today I've learned:

Ac/Dc - Back In Black
Coldplay - Shiver
Jeff Buckley - Grace

and I tabbed Damo's Closer (wasn't actually listening to the song while I tabbed it so I wouldn't trust it very far...... )

On my "to-do list" I have to tab Call of Ktulu (sp?) by Metallica and I'm gonna try some Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Start off with an artist whose songs you're quite familiar with....you'll have an idea of their style. First song I ever tabbed was In Bloom by Nirvana (I had been playing for 6 months - a year) which consisted almost entirely of power chords!

There's no real trick to it...the more you do it the better you'll get. As a rule I try to tab at least a song on day (keeps me on my toes ) I also regularly tab things without knowing what they are Earlier today I tabbed what I think was originally a Bryan Adams song...Heaven? I just started playing it and went.....what the hell is that!?

Don't give up!

Yeah great solo....actually played that song at my graduation - went down a storm

Ok, in the last hour or so I've tabbed (now don't get overexcited Killian ) :

Bell X1 - Pinball Machine
Bell X1 - For The Money
Bell X1 - Godsong
Bell X1 - Little Sister
Bell X1 - Deep

....and tommorow I'll do Music in Mouth
Hehe only joking!!

I'm guessing Killian, that you already know these ones?
Just in case:

Deep - 3 main chords...A, E, F#m
For The Money - Capo 3rd fret... chords are E flat minor, G#, Cm, B flat
Little sister/Pinball Machine/Godsong - simliar chords for each...your usual Em, D, C, G etc.

"Not neccessarily....I'm assuming eims plays another instrument?" - i meant that it would be a drawback to tabbing lol.

"Never heard it, I don't think. What type of song is it?" - it's kind of accusticcy electric, none of the chords are that hard they just change really fast, i think it's just cause i'm used to playing finger-picky stuff. http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/...r_ver4_crd.htm
it's a cool song to download. i think its from 97.

I also just learnt, First day of my life, by Bright eyes, which is a beautiful song. It'd be lovely to sing to someone.

*whispers* Unplayed Piano

Not in a position to post up tabs at the moment...it's in the key of D and fairly predictable for those who want to try it out!
