The Perfect Acoustic Setlist

August 24th, 2007 by redd


  Like many guitar players out there today, and many of our readers here at daily guitarist, I like to think of myself as a moderately talented guitar player. I have a good understanding of music theory, can read music and tab, can play any chord out there, and can put together a pretty sick guitar solo when it comes down to it. I’ve never taken guitar lessons, or really ever been a member of a rock band, but I have had my share of performances. When I look back on all the camp fire jam sessions, and the sitting around the living room singing and jamming with my buddies back in college, or any of the numerous cheesy talent shows i have been apart of in my guitar playing career. The one jam that sets itself apart from the rest has to be the time my good friend, and fellow daily guitarist writer, Billy “bah “Leonard came down to visit me in Providence, RI for the weekend. It wasn’t until he arrived at my apartment that he knew what he was in for.

Party Like A Rockstar, Party Like A Rockstar

July 31st, 2007 by redd


   It is every musicians dream to someday, somehow make it big. And that is not where the similarities end. While we may not have the crazy rock star hair yet, or the screaming groupies, us guitarists and musicians all share the same dreams. Whether you think you’re destined to become a screeching lead singer, one of the best guitarists the world has ever seen, or one of the craziest dudes to bang around on a drum set, we would want nothing more than to be on stage before thousands of screaming fans. So what is it that sets someone like Jimi Hendrix, or Curt Cobain aside from someone like you or me? Well today we will focus on just that. What does it really takes to make it big, and land that record label of your dreams?

Links to some of the best guitar tabs ever

July 26th, 2007 by redd


      Today’s blog entry will be A collection of my personal favorite guitar tab sites that I have collected over the years. I have been playing guitar for over 8 years now, and have been getting progressively better each year. Alot of this has been due to my discovering of guitar tabs being offered online. I remember spending countless hours trying to balance my guitar in my lap, while sitting in front of a computer screen learning songs from some of my favorite artists.

      I have always had a liking to the acoustic guitar, so my first link will be a site dedicated entirely to acoustic tabs. is A great site to go to and wander around clicking on some of the best tabbed acoustic songs ever. Oh yeah, the site is primarily in french, but thankfully guitarists not familiar with the french language can easily transform this site into english with the click of a button.
        While at first I did not like John Mayer, one must give credit when it is due, and he is one hell of a guitar player. is a site with tabs to just about every song John Mayer has ever released, as well as some covers that he has performed live. John Mayer is an extremely talented guitarist, and I personally find playing his songs challenging while at the same time alot of fun.

      When I first discovered tabs online, I was really big into the Dave Matthews Band, probably like alot of young guitarists around today. I spend alot of time learning Dave’s creative chords and riffs that he puts together so nicely on so many of his songs. is a site that I can go to on any day of the week, and relearn all of my favorite songs by him, as well as some of hes renditions of many famous covers that he has performed live over the years. The site is very easy to navigate and i find it very easy to spend a couple of hours there and not even realize it.

      When I need to find a guitar tab that might not be listed anywhere else, I know where to turn. has over 255,000 guitar tabs, and if this site does not have what you’re looking for than you might as well start tabbing the song out yourself. For years Tab Crawler has been one of the premiere destinations for guitar tabs, and is still so today.

      I hope you find these links as helpful as I did. Take some time looking around these sites, and try learning a song from someone you have never played on guitar before. Alot of my drive to play guitar comes learning new riffs and chords that I have never played before. For me, finding ways of making new sounds come out of my guitar that I have never heard before is what keeps me playing everyday.
