Thread: You Are The Everything - REM

    Default You Are The Everything - REM

    Going to have to learn this one.... Sounds easy enough. Though I still need to get the basics down, I may take a shot at this song. I haven't seen a tutorial video for it - does anyone know if there is anything out there?

    Thanks!

It would be SO much easier if I could just call Peter and ask him.

    I just thought it would be fun to learn a song before I dive into the learning how to read music, etc so I can feel like I've accomplished something rather than just plinking and plunking around. :-)

    sorry that did not help. I did not have a chance to try it out, I just found it and posted.
    Are you just starting with the mandolin? Seems like a hard way to start, unless you are already an experienced musician that is.

    No, haven't touched an instrument for years and I'm not planning on getting this song down perfectly for now... Just trying to learn a lick or two from it for the heck of it because REM is the reason I wanted to plan the mandolin in the first place.

    oh - in that case, Losing My Religion might be another place to start, since there is some nice sheet music and tablature for it

    I'm 4 years late, but R.E.M. was the reason I got a mandolin as well. If you're still interested in learning the song, if you haven't already, I just posted a lesson on YouTube.....since I know it (I think, anyway!) and there didn't seem to be one posted already.



    I hope this is helpful to someone!

    Cool! I tried to make it as easy and clear as possible in the video, but let me know if you have any questions.

    I really need to learn the names of the chords! Hahahahahahaha

    Thanks! Alternating the 4 chords is great practice, enjoyable and build calluses fast!
