					Sheriff Picks: Song Tabs of Music from the 1960s
            Posted on Friday, November 7th, 2008 at 11:36 am by

								One of my responsibilities here at MXTabs.net is to license
songs, which requires me to sit in front of a computer all day long
performing music copyright research, then entering appropriate
information into a database built to ensure that the correct
percentage of our site’s ad revenue is being distributed to the
correct music publishers. As you can probably imagine, I’ve
never really considered this to be the highlight of my work day. After
all, it’s detail-orientated, repetitive, and not nearly as fun
as my work with the MXTabs.net Forum and Community. But the other day
I realized something that made me think of licensing songs in a new
light. Basically, I realized that I am probably more familiar with the
49,002 song tabs currently available on MXTabs.net than anyone else on
the planet.
So rather than just dutifully licensing songs, I decided to turn the
process into something a little more creative by starting this new
blog column you’re reading, Sheriff Picks. Simply put, each week
I will choose a topic and then pick a handful of guitar, bass, and
drum tabs to highlight said topic. My goal with Sheriff Picks is
twofold: 1) to expose readers to some great song tab that maybe they
wouldn’t normally search for (or didn’t know was available
on MXTabs.net) and 2) to keep me from losing my mind while licensing
songs!!! Only time will tell on both counts, but let’s get to
this week’s topic, Song Tabs of Music from the 1960s.
Featured 1960s Guitar Tab
What discussion of 1960s guitar tab would be complete without
mentioning The Beatles and George Harrison’s amazing guitar
work? If you’re a beginning guitarist, I’d suggest trying
one of these Day Tripper guitar tabs. With its popular and
easier-than-it-sounds guitar riff, Day Tripper is a perfect beginner
piece to impress your friends and family with. At the opposite end of
the spectrum, if you’re a more advanced guitarist looking for a
challenge, I recommend playing through one of the MXTabs.net Whole
Lotta Love guitar tabs by another seminal band that got their start in
the 1960s, Led Zeppelin. Looking for something else, still? Then here
are five more guitar tabs of music from the 1960s to consider.

White Room by Cream
Magic Carpet Ride by Steppenwolf
Susie Q by Creedence Clearwater Revival
The House of the Rising Sun by The Animals
Time of the Season by The Zombies

Featured 1960s Bass Guitar Tab
When I think of bass guitar and the 1960s, one of the first artists
that comes to my mind is “the Godfather of Soul,” James
Brown. His innovative mix of funk rhythms, bass grooves, and
traditional song structures should be required learning for any
bassist. Check out this bass tab for It’s a Man’s
Man’s Man’s World to see why. Also be sure to try this
Sunday Morning bass tab by The Velvet Underground. It’s a very
simple bass tab, but Sunday Morning has long been one of my favorite
songs from the 1960s, and the opening bass “sigh” is an
appropriate start to this quiet rocker.

Helter Skelter by The Beatles
Whipping Post by The Allman Brothers Band
Stand By Me by Ben E. King
What Is And What Should Never Be by Led Zeppelin
Down On The Corner by Creedence Clearwater Revival

Featured 1960s Drum Tab
If you know the first thing about drumming, chances are that you
already know quite a bit about Keith Moon, drummer for The Who. After
all, he was one of the first people to use his drum set as a lead
instrument, and his incredible technique has influenced several
subsequent generations of drummers. If you’re brave enough to
attempt some of his solos and fills, feel free to use these two
extraordinary song tabs as a guide: Baba O’Riley drum tab and
The Kids Are Alright drum tab. Of course, Keith Moon wasn’t the
only innovative drummer of his era, so check out these other featured
drum tabs of music from the 1960s too.

Wipeout by The Surfaris
Come Together by The Beatles
Good Times Bad Times by Led Zeppelin
All Day And All Of The Night by The Kinks
White Room by Cream

So there you have it, the first installment of Sheriff Picks. I hope
you enjoyed these song tabs of music from the 1960s. Are there any
tabs you think would be a good addition to the list? Or do you have
any suggestions for future topics? Please leave a comment below and
let me know. I’ll get to Song Tabs of Music from the 1970s soon,
but I was thinking next Friday of tackling Songs with Days of the Week
in the Title (as well as touching on why this column is called Sheriff
Picks… just in case you were wondering). Until then, au revoir!
