MorningCan any kind person out there help an old guy out.I have been strugling to learn a song from you tube,I have a little of the tab done but now I am lost.Is there any one out there cat can figuire the tabs out for me link to songe included.
Thank you Mal (UK)
best way i've found to tab things out is to use scales then a circle of fifths.
on your 3 string work out the scale postions for the major scale, and then the minor and major pentatonic scales.
then play the scales over the you tube clip, until you find a scale that fits (all the notes, sometimes you will get some that are just a note off)
then apply the scale to the circle of fifths. i.e. if the scale is c major, then the C chord will be the I chord G will be the IV chord etc etc
should be easy after that
otherwise i'll have a go after the long weekend

There is a great program available, called Chord Pick Out. It will analyze a MP3 or any recording and tells you the chord progression. I've been able to come up with an arrangement for a song after discovering the chords used in the song. It's a inexpensive program. Check it out.
