A few advice

You can use the “Speed Trainer” options in Guitar Pro 7 to practice these songs at your pace.

Note that the left-hand fingering is indicated next to the notes on the standard notation.


Shallow – Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper


This fingerstyle song is played without any pick. The hammer-on situated in the fourth bar must be played very quickly. At first, it might not ring much and that’s okay if it’s the first time you are trying to play that. Here is a video on how to play them: “How to hammer on a guitar”.

If you want to use a pick on this one, you’ll have to block some strings when playing the D/F# and G5 chords.


Home – Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros


This is a fun and easy accompaniment in an arpeggio. You’ll need to be very constant in your playing, each note must last only half a beat. (Eight notes)

The chords used here are Bm, D, et G.

The Bm chord is usually played in full with a bar, but here it’s played only on two notes so you won’t need to do that.

We have added the vocals of the song in a second track in case you want to play this song with another guitarist, just switch the track in Guitar Pro.


Mia & Sebastian’s Theme (Late For The Date) – (La La Land)


You will need to put a capo on the second fret of your guitar to play this slow fingerstyle romantic peace.

We notice here a 3/4 measure, this means that there 3 beats per bar, a little bit like a waltz.

The term “Let Ring” appears many times throughout this intro. it means that you need to let the bass notes ring as much as you can.


Let Her Go – Passenger


This tablature is a little more technical than the previous ones. First, place a capo on the 7th fret and put away your pick again. This intro is ideal if you need to learn and practice hammer-ons and pull-offs.

At first, you should try to play it without these technics and add them later.

Here is the link to the full score from our official tablature website: mySongBook.com


Come – Jane


This accompaniment is rather simple to play even if the tempo is quite fast. Don’t forget to put a capo on the 3rd fret. You can practice and play the vocals too in this one.

Listen to the rhythm at a slow beat :


And this symbol means that you need to strum down, and this one means that you need to strum up.


Lost On You – LP


Here is a simple but very effective rhythmic on only three chords: Am, D, and Em which is repeated twice and therefore played for two bars.

As you can see, you often have to play only parts of the chords, you don’t need to play all the strings every time you play them. You’ll need to be precise with your right hand.

Listen to the rhythmic part at a slow beat:


Big Jet Plane – Angus and Julia Stone


This time you’ll have to deal with the “palm mute” technique which can be hard to get at first. Leave the right hand on the strings while playing to obtain a muffled sound. Place a capo on the first fret too.


Radioactive – Imagine Dragons


Here is an amusing song to play with chords and arpeggios. Place the chord and then try to let it sound as long as possible.

You can be a bit more aggressive on the chords with your pick.

The chords used are Am, Em7/C and G. Put a capo on the second fret.


Little Talks – Of Monsters and Men


Here is another cool strum pattern:

The chords used are easy to play after some practice: Am, F/C, C, and G.


Ho Hey – The Lumineers


Here is the strum pattern:

You may have noticed the accents on some of the chords, don’t forget to play them if you want to play this pattern correctly. You can find the full score of this song on our official tablatures website: mysongbook.com
