    Thumbs up Newbie on the block

    Hi guys,

    I am a newbie on the site and to guitar. Although I have learnt some chords C, Am, G, C, D, Dm etc but I am still unable to understand how do they combine to make a song.

    Well, I did try using some chords and earlier postings but what I play is completely different from the song what it is meant to be. It might also appear daft but thats what it is.

    Can someone advise please so that one day I might also be amongst those who post tabs and chords for the requests.?

    try singing the song such that you strum the chord only once at the start of every verse like
    Bm....... .........................F#.....................
    On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
    strum once at the start of the verse sing the rest of the verse
    again start the next versewith one strum and continue singing
    after some practice you can get a rythm for strumming

    hey dude

    hey man,.sup? Even i started just a few mnths back,... take ma word dude,... practice practice n practice even more,.. sit witha guitar in yr hand wenevr u got time,.. u'll get the nack of it.

    i suggest u learn this damn easy song by Motorhead - I Ain't No Nice Guy. Its an awesome song sung by lemmy, bu tthe chords are as simpler as it can get.

    its like A-E-D then A-G-D.

    Try it for sure dude.
