    Is Scream of the Butterfly by Acid Bath a good song to start out with? :meh:

    Anacortes Wa.
    No ... just kidding
    never heard it.
  3. Never hear of it.

    The best song for a beginner is "with or without you" by U2;

    4 notes until the end
  4. Could not find chords just tab and the tab was for 6 string guitar so the melody ------ I'd look for another song.

    I presume you know about Google. Google guitar chords, "name of the song"

    Good luck.
  5. It's a great song, but if you find tabs for it, it will seem difficult to start with, and if you try to play it by ear, you'll miss a lot of the notes. Over time (months), you'll pick up more of it and get better, but it's not a song you'll be able to play well quickly, if you have little experience.

    Don't discard it though, have a go, and see how you get on with it. :bassist:

    Ha, thank you. In three days of practicing it, I pretty much got it down pat. I didn't want to start out with something insanely easy. Wooo! I'm not sure if I could have done that one by ear as quickly. It would have probably taken me twice as long.
