Hayley is my favorite girl singer so I had to do a Paramore song.
Grab video code:
The next song I am going to do is by a band called Paramore. There are two on the tab that I want to show you. There are two parts to it. The first is the lead guitar. If you want to learn a lead guitar as fast as he picks it, you can probably teach yourself these tabs. They are really simple. All they are is just notes plus they pick really fast. So if you can pick that fast, you can probably read tabs.
It starts out Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb, the quick way to get to that is to put your Kapo on the 1st fret to understand your tune and then take your Kapo off and you will be in half step down. The verse is exactly the same as the intro. It is just played through twice but whenever you play it actually, you are going to mute it with your palms. When I play it, I do not because I am not really playing that like this. So I will just teach you how to play it and you decide. This string here, your low E is in Db so put your guitar on drop D with your Kapo on the 1st fret. You should tune this to D, A, D, G, B, E and then take your Kapo off and you will be in Db. These two should sound the same. So once you get the Db tuning – but you start out kind of power chords. These are easy barre chords to play. So just covering your top three strings, you can use your pointer finger or your ring finger.
I am going to start out my pointer finger barre across the E, A and B strings 4th fret. Then you slide up in this lower root. All that is this pointer finger on the 2nd fret of your A string and your ring or pinky whichever you want to play, I will play it with my ring is on the 4th fret on the A string. So it is two, four, two, four, two and then the first after you barre – the top three strings are E, A and D here on the 2nd fret. So you will play down, down, three strums and you go back up the beginning and back at four, four, four and then open and you start the same thing beginning 4th fret. And after, that I slide up here to the 7th fret and put both my fingers on the E and A. So my pointer finger on the E and my middle finger on the A string of the 7th fret and then I stretch my pinky down here to the D string on the 9th fret. So I play the top three strings so down, up, down, up and then this pointer finger that is on the 7th fret is actually sliding down to the 6th fret of the E string. I keep that middle finger on the 7th fret of the A string and the pinky on the 9th fret of the D string. So it sounds like this and then it goes back in the verse.
If you do not like this part here, you can actually just play the barre across the seven if that is easier than this part. You can just play down, up, down, up and seven down, up, down, up and six. That is the intro. That is the verse. The very end of the verse is a pre-chorus and all that is eight strums on the 4th barre, power chord E, A, D on the 4th fret. So one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, so down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, slide down on the 2nd fret, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, so one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.
