Halleluja Chords Jeff Buckley

Hallelujah Chords The Easy Way

This is a magnificent song off Buckley’s debut 1994 “Grace” album. The original was by Leonard Cohen. However, we transcribed ‘Hallelujah‘ from Jeff Buckley’s version.

Guitars at Musician's Friend

The Leonard Coen hallelujah has had a slight resurgence in the last few years with over 100 cover versions performed by such artists such as Bob Dylan, Bon Jovi, Rufus Wainwright, and Bono just to name but a few.

As for which version of the song is better, well, I guess we’ll leave that up for you to decide. But for this latest resurgence of a 24 year old work, it must be the Cohen Hallelujah. After been swindled out of millions by his manager he’ll certainly appreciate the paycheck. To that, I’m sure he’ll say… “hallelujah“. Read more

March 19, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

playing the guitarKnowing how to play songs that are popular and recognizable is something every novice guitar player wants to do. Being able to impress your friends by playing one of your favorite tunes is an amazing feeling. I’m sure everyone has fantasized about being a huge rock star and playing in front of thousands of screaming fans at least once in their life.

Most of us won’t ever get the chance to play in front of thousands of people but it can be just as satisfying to learn some songs and play them in front of a smaller crowd. Eventually this will lead to you creating your own original songs, but for now it’s good practice to learn songs from other musicians. This will really help you understand some of the things involved in crafting a good song. Read more

Easy Guitar Songs You Should Know

November 4, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Sooner or later a time comes for anyone who has just learned to play the guitar. It’s time to choose a few songs that are not that demanding (considering your small amount of experience), but sound really good.  I would definitely start with Smoke on the Water, written and incredibly performed by Deep Purple for decades. The thing is, everyone knows it, it has that distinctive riff and people (especially girls) who have no idea how to play the guitar will appreciate someone who performs it. Even if you are not that good with the guitar, you can learn to play this song just by watching any of tutorials on YouTube.

Of course, you don’t want to be that guy who knows how to play the guitar, but knows only one song and annoys everyone. So after you master Smoke on the Water, next song you should definitely try is Smells like Teen Spirit by Nirvana. I literally don’t know any teenager who hasn’t heard this song, at least once. Just like the previous song, this one also has a distinctive riff that is so simple, and yet sounds amazing. You can add a little bit of improvisation if you don’t want to sound dull, but anyway you can’t go wrong with this song.

So those are two songs you need to know to play for any occasion whenever your guitar is around. Now there is also a third option that will make you stand out a bit from all the rookies who can play only the easiest songs. Learn to play Hair of the Dog by Nazareth. Also a lot of people know it or heard it somewhere, but not a lot of players (especially rookies) know how to play it. Not because it’s hard, but because it’s not so worn out.

So there you have it, first 3 guitar songs you need to learn to play on your guitar. Knowing how to play the guitar would make it a lot easier, but you could just watch tutorials on YouTube.

March 23, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Iron Man by Black Sabbath Guitar Tabs Toni IommiIron Man by Black Sabbath is one of my 5 easy guitar songs because of the simple chord progression. Not only is this song easy to play, it sounds powerful. This song is the beginning of metal guitar. Since the songs release in 1970, a lot of notable bands have re-made a cover of “Iron Man.”  Iron Man has also been used in many TV show, films and, or course, sporting events. Since the 1976 release of Black Sabbath’s ‘We Sold Our Soul for Rock ‘n’ Roll‘ album, “Iron Man“, by no surprise, has been included in subsequent Black Sabbath greatest hits compilations. Even the sound track of the 2008 comic book film, Iron Man, included the “Iron Man” song. This song should be on everyone’s favorite “easy guitar songs to learn” list. Below is the guitar tab for Iron Man. This is a public guitar tab transcribed, but not original. There are many ways to play this song, and I believe Tony Iommi has played it different ways while performing live. Now stop reading and start learning this guitar song!
