Learning Songs On The Guitar

Learning songs on the guitar should be fun. With the internet you’re sure to find transcriptions to just about any song that you could care to learn, but you’ll want to learn how to read guitar tablature first. There are other aspects of music notation that you’ll eventually want to learn, such as note values, but reading tab will get you started.

We have a vast collection of songs here at Guitar Alliance. Songs and riffs are broken down to easy to digest “chunks” that allow you to master each section of the song separately and then put it all together.

You can:

  • Learn how to play over 500 of the greatest guitar riffs in the world
  • Watch song segments performed with our videos
  • Learn tips and tricks on how to play featured songs and riffs. Go beyond just the tab and find the easiest and most effective way to learn the song.
  • Download valuable resources that are printable. You can even make your own reference manual.
  • Learn with confidence with our complete and accurate song transcriptions. Play along note for note with guitar greats like hendrix, vaughan, van halen, and more.
