  1. Heather (the Angel) (#10501) - Page 3 by Marcos Macias (707)
    The chords here are just the full chords of what were picked at the beginning with the groove behind them this time. The background will pay the Bm chord louder so the mutes will add percussion rather than rest, other wise de...(more)

  3. You've Done Nothing Wrong (#9674) - Page 1 by Marcos Macias (707)
    Play this 10 times. Twice for the intro then 2 times for every line sung. This song is easier played in Dropped D but You can play it like it's showed, with some stretch.

  5. Open-String Power Chords (#181) - Page 1 by Christopher Sung (9641)
    A few weeks ago, Sean and I were in Manny's checking out the Line 6 amps (sorry, Mark, we had a little GAS), and I saw him noodling around with an interesting power chord progression where he mixed some open strings with the ...(more)

  10. The Seattle Style (#91) - Page 2 by Jared Wren (391)
    This progression is similar to Alive by Pearl Jam that is just A to G. That same rhythm is used where the G always occurs on the beat before the measure like in measures 2 and 4

  11. The Seattle Style (#91) - Page 1 by Jared Wren (391)
    When I think of those great Seattle bands from the early 90s like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and others, I think of the interesting harmonies that they used and how they used certain rhythm patterns to create great song...(more)

  12. Alterno-Riff Tune (#197) - Page 1 by Christopher Sung (9641)
    Here's a tune I was just fooling around with. Most of the chords have a major 9th stuck in there somewhere (the A, the C and the D). When the G chord is played, I drop the low G on the 6th string, such that the lowest note ...(more)

    This is the last part of the Chorus. After this, go back to the verse and then chorus again. Same setup, except the 2nd time the chorus ends it keeps strumming istead of resting and goes into the off timed solo on the next pa...(more)

  14. The Seattle Style (#91) - Page 3 by Jared Wren (391)
    Using the same rhythm, we can play the progression below that reminds me a lot of Soungarden. We are playing in G, and the Eb gives it that grungy kind of feeling
