    Hi Brett,

    Welcome to Guitar Noise. Unfortunately we had to remove the musical examples from this lesson. We can only show the music for songs we negotiated a license for. You can view all the current lessons at http://www.guitarnoise.com/topics/easy-guitar-songs/

    We’re adding new songs every month and we are still trying to negotiate the rights for lessons like this one. Hopefully you’ll still find a song you want to learn on this site.

    – Paul

    When I open a lesson it says “musical examples not available due to copyright restrictions in my region.” Is there any way around this?

      Hi Brett

      I don’t know how recently you’ve discovered Guitar Noise so my apologies if this may be old news to you. A while back, we were informed that our various song lessons were in violation of United States copyright laws and we promptly removed the tablature, music notation and lyrics from these lessons. Since then we’ve been in negotiation with various publishers, trying to work out a legal contract to use their artists’ copyrighted material. We’ve made some progress (currently we’ve gotten back nine songs) but it is going to be a continuing project. We hope you can be patient with us while we try to work things out.

      Feel free to post any questions you may have or to email me directly at dhodgeguitar@aol.com. I look forward to chatting with you again.
