    Gwen Stefani (No Doubt) It's My Life

    The first part is groove-ey, but the middle will get you moving.

    Is that what you meant?

    PowerTabs has 2 versions, and both look faily accurate with notation. You can find it under the artist name of "No Doubt".

    I don't know, I looked at the second one and while parts of it are basically the same as what I play, the "pre-chorus" and last two bars before it are completely different from what I hear/play.

    But this isn't a thread about the accuracy of a tab, and it's still a fun song to play.

    Moving on, what happened to the OP? Ruby?
  11. I personally really like Hysteria by Muse.

    It's not difficult, but lots of fun to play.

    Of the two on PowerTabs I'm using the one that also has the guitar line. It's seems pretty accurate although I'm not using the exact fingering. I know it well enough now that I'm not reading the music. I really like having the notation.

    It is fun to play and you have to move up and down the fret board quite a bit which is what I need to work on.
