First Jam Session

Allman Brothers

A friend of mine recently took up the bass, so we decided to get together and jam. I hate even using the word “jam” since it implies we knew what we were doing.

Truth Doesn’t Make A Noise

White Stripes De Stijl

I’ve been working on learning Truth Doesn’t Make A Noise of the De Stijl album by The White Stripes on my own.  It’s not a difficult song in terms of the cord progression.  It’s pretty straight forward:  Am -> G -> C -> D -> Am for the main part.  You can find the tabs online of course.  There are a couple versions, but this is the one I like best.  The opening riff is a bit tricky and you’ll need some quick fingers to get it properly.  I haven’t quite gotten the riff down, so I still need to work on it.
