How to Play Grindcore Guitar

Save the money on guitar lessons: learn it alone

LearnGuitar tabs to read.
Guitarists have their own system of writing down notes, called guitar tabs, or guitar tabs for short. The basic idea is to see the individual lines of the tab sequence as you see the guitar. Each line stands for a string and each number tells you which fret to grab when you play the string.

  • To play this tab of the guitar riff of the Lynyrd Skynyrd song "Sweet Home Alabama" you have to strike the open D-string twice, the H-string on the third fret, the G-string on the second fret, and so on.
  • Switching between solo guitar riffs and chords is very exciting. You feel that you are playing real music and not just “learning to play the guitar”. But don't rush into anything, make sure that you play every chord cleanly and that you don't completely lose the rhythm when you play a fast riff.
