Step One

So yesterday I set myself the goal of learning a song on my much neglected guitar,  as it stands due to a slightly later than usual arrival home and my usual procrastination (aka WOW) I have yet to actually pluck the guitar from its resting place, however looking back at Slyph’s suggestion day two didn’t involve any actual playing so I’m still on track!

I’m not really going to go into why I picked the song, I think I covered that yesterday with my “im a geek” comment and the only thing I have to add to that really is simply that I like the song and secondly it seems somewhat easy to play.

Whilst I didn’t do any actual practice I did take some time to find a Tab that I can use to learn it.

My first point of call was Tab Library, it had the what seems unnecessary requirement of registering, something I find especially pointless in a website that offers all its Tabs for free, but it only took a few minutes to do and has an impressive selection of tabs, and more importantly did have “Still alive”

In fact they have it in multitudes, I have 8 options to choose from, and when I go into them I have anywhere up to 5 submissions of how this song is played, and upon my brief look so far every single one is different.

Whilst the song itself might not be all that hard, it seems that it might be that little bit harder to learn than I expected!

    Good to see you made it to day two! Id suggest going for the basic chord progression initially, don’t worry too much about the varying nuances each contributor to the tabs will have spotted. 🙂

    So, day three coming up: blowing off the dust 🙂
