Guitar Playing In Punk Rock Style

Introduction.

Punk Rock is really easy to play. And if you want start play guitar I think you should start with this type of music. You dont have to be maestro to make a good music. This lesson is very short but you can learn much. When I start listen to Blink 182 I buy American Strat (Blink was reason why I started play guitar). My favourite bands are Blink 182, Taking Back Sunday, Finch, Box Car Racer New Found Glory, Sum 41, Good Charllote. After some time practicing you can start band if you wanna play punk rock. Only thing that you have to do is practice. Have fun!
Practice.For practice you should do things like this (try to make this faster and faster).

E0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13---------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------

Then do this backward and on every string. Practice this for couple of days and then go for chords.
Chords.Here are all chords that you need for punk rock music.

C C# D D# E B Eii F F# G G# A A#

A---3---4--5--6--0-2-7---3--4-5-6--7-8-------------------------------

You need to learn those chords if you want to play. Make sure that you can play practice thingy and all of this chords. And if you can, Riffs won't be problems. All you have to do is practice.
Riffs.Here are some riffs for practice and playing!

Finishing.First off all this lesson is for begginners that want play guitar and want play in bends. I hope this text was helpful for someone. After you put it all together, don't start off in a band, wait couple of months cause you need more practice. And when you finished this lesson download some punk rock guitar tab amd jam it. Have fun! Any comment, question, requests, please e-mail me tomislav@brusac.os.htnet.hr. Can't wait 'till new Blink record come out!
