You have a basic knowledge of guitar chords, music, and guitar tabs and you would like to learn a new song.  This will teach you how to play 'Bubbly' by Colbie Caillat.

Required Materials:
An Acoustic Guitar (either steel or nylon strings will work)
A tuner
A pick (any size you prefer)

(Note: This is an easy- intermediate level song, these instructions are built for those that already play basic guitar with tabs and know a little about music. Even so, I have created as simple of a version as I can for those willing to try something new or above their level.)

Step 1: Tune Your Guitar

You will need to be in Standard Tuning: E, A, D, G, B, E, from lowest to highest E.
Very nice work. I love all the details you gave, so I can essentially pick up a guitar and play without having much of any prior knowledge of the guitar. I also really love your photographs.
Thank you, I really appreciate it! Also, your how to assemble a flute and making thin mint cookies were both excellent and easy to follow! You are an amazing photographer!
Awesome, wish I could play the guitar. Ukulele version?? Hehe.
Hello music.maker, <br> <br>As someone who has taught guitar to many people (including myself), I applaud your photos: a truly effective way to help folks make the connection between the lines and dots on the page and the ones on their axe. <br> <br>Might I humbly suggest that you give that photo treatment to an 'ible on guitar tablature? These ones are great: <br>http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-read-guitar-tabs-2/ <br>http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Write-and-Understand-Guitar-TABs/ <br>http://www.instructables.com/id/Reading-and-Writing-Guitar-Tablature/ <br>...but I think that yours would be a great addition to them. <br> <br>On a tangential and unabashedly self-promotional note, here's some of what I do with the lines and dots: <br>https://www.youtube.com/user/mcraghead2 <br>http://www.humboldtmusic.com/MC/Complete.cfm <br> <br>Take care! <br> <br>Mike <br> <br>Take care! <br> <br>Mike
