We’ve added all kinds of great songs to our Guitar Section this week! From Greenhorn to Trailblazer we’ve got something for everybody. Let’s take a look at what we’ve got!

24 Frames by Jason Isbell: Great for working on your transitions from a four finger G to a Cadd9 and Em7, a very common chord progression found in many songs from the 80’s, 90’s, and 00’s. (Greenhorn)

Can’t Hardly Wait by Paul Westerberg: We’ve used the Justin Townes Earle arrangement for this classic alt. country staple. In this lesson I show you how to use an Easy Bm for us Greenhorns who aren’t quite ready for Barre Chords (Greenhorn)

Somebody To Shove by Soul Asylum: Another 90’s classic, showcasing how much one can get out of power chords while palm muting and accenting certain eighth notes. (Journeyman)

Give Me One Reason by Tracy Chapman: This is a perfect song for working on our barre chords and getting a grasp on some of those hard to grasp syncopated rhythms. (Tralblazer)

Teacher by Jethro Tull: A great acoustic arrangement featuring multiple guitar parts, power chords, syncopated rhythms, and pentatonic licks! (Rock and Roll)

A note about requests: Thank you all very much for requesting such awesome tunes. Right now I’ve got a list of about 50 requests. Which is a lot of tunes! I can’t promise I will get to them all, but I will try. I’m currently working on transcribing more songs from Townes Van Zandt’s “Live at the Old Quarter” album. I hope to have these ready by late summer.

Thanks for your support!
