    Help a noob with Unchained?

    I just can't hear the notes this guy has mentioned or even that many notes in the solo part. Here's a pic.




    That is, the stuff just after the arrow has me befuddled.

    I'm a guitar noob too, but tabs are always wrong...just listen to it and try to "find" the notes. If you dont know where to start or your stuck tabs can help.
    But I'd guess thats thats the 12th fret, based on the notes around it.

    Some parts are sorta right. I don't know maybe you can play it that way, never really tried it. And that's NOT how Ed plays it at all.

    The opening chords are Unchained (not Ed's way or the easiest way but the notes are the notes)...but the solo has lost me.

    I didn't even look at the main riff, but that's definitely not how Ed plays it. Hell I don't know anyone who plays it like that. Using a first position D chord? Uh no.

    The pre-chorus isn't right either.

    Here's the right tab for Unchained. This is how you want to play it.

    The positions in that tab are so uncomfortable for me, at least. The way Ed plays it just seems right.

    Thanks, Brett. Are Ultimate guitar tabs generally good for VH, do you think?

    Well I'm not in the band anymore, but I might do an all Halen covers album in the future.

    Thanks, Brett. Are Ultimate guitar tabs generally good for VH, do you think?
    Yes, if you download the free Power Tab software and then download Power Tab tabs, it actually plays the song for you so you can follow the phrasing. Very helpful. Ultimate Guitar has tons of Power Tab VH tabs. Highly recommend you do that.
