anyone know where I can find guitar chords to songs?

Since OLGA was shut down a while ago I was wondering if anyone knew any good comprehensive sites where I can learn the guitar to songs and many different bands like Beatles and Nirvava. Thanks in advance!

Olga is still a great source, but you're best bet is to search google for the specific band you are looking for because I've always had an easy time finding good websites from fans who compile all the best they can find (or do their own.)

I think www.ultimate-guitar.com is way better than the last 2 posted.

Also check out worldguitar.com

Just bought my first guitar last week and was wondering where was the best place to learn songs, now that olga has been defunct for a while? Thanks in advance.

Tabs categorized as "easy" by About. Choose a decade:

Be careful. A lot of tab sites are loaded with pop ups and spyware.

That's why I trust the About.com guitar section

www.powertabs.net

...is by far, to me, the best place to get a tab. It makes use of the free and excellent Powertab program (available at Power-Tab.net), which is a program that basically plays tabs (which really helps with your timing since it highlights the note while it's being played), and you can also print them off (the printout looks like a real tab book). Powertabs.net isn't the only place to get powertabs but they have fairly high submission standards so most songs you get there will be relatively accurate. It's especially good for rock stuff (and has quite a bit of classical too) - harder to get pop, soul, r&b, or generally 'softer' music since its mainly popular with the real guitarheads.

My #2 is thetabworld.com or ultimate-guitar.com; they've got quite a bit of coverage (and quite a bit of ads...)
