Songwriting 2 (Guitar 1)

Animated Songwriting 2 (Guitar 1) tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is from the Jamzone where we are exploring songwriting. Listen to the Normal Speed Audio (under Tools) to hear the final 'song'. Or download it:



The song is just 3 riffs. The verse, chorus and bridge.

Verse - Just 3 notes. Repeat 4 times then slide down into the chorus riff.


Chorus - This is fast palm muted downstrokes on the G5 powerchord. If you love playing rock music, then you simply must practice this technique! Check out the Core Skills section on Palm Muting and get stuck in.


Bridge - This riff is based around the F5 powerchord. It serves to break away from the verse-chorus cycle, which can get monotonous in riff-based songs.


The song follows this arrangement:

Verse - Chorus - Verse - Chorus - Bridge - Chorus - Verse (Outro)

The Outro is just a repeat of the Verse.
