Beginner guitarist VK songs?

Hey, guys! I saw a thread a while back about VK songs that beginner guitarists could play/learn to. It’s been a few years, so send me some recommendations!

(playing for 1 year)
Gear:
Ibanez GRX20Z tuned to E Standard
Marshall MG15R

Tune to drop D and hide with spread beaver - pink spider is a good easy song! First full song I learned as a wee lad.

I haven’t tried to cover too many VK songs, and I’m not that great at guitar (yet!), but I found Dir en grey’s Byou Shin (from MISSA) is pretty easy to pick up. Plus, it’s in E standard so no fiddling with the neck just yet.

Byou Shin is great, I’ll try to play along to it too!

small update, I got my hands on a Boss Katana 100 mkii, so I’ll very easily be able to mess with emulating tones and effects as well!

I found a few other songs that were pretty easy to play by just listening and messing with the pentatonic scale.

  • Limit Break x Survivor by Kiyoshi Hikawa starts off on the major scale.
  • LOVE DEEPER by Yuiko Tsubokura is a minor pentatonic. I think. I gotta ask.
  • I was also able to cover the vocal melody in Ringo no Uta by Tokyo Jihen. This was hard mode haha.

try vanitas by DIMLIM

I’m gonna keep this one in the back pocket for when I get a seven string and start messing with alternate tunings. Thanks!

P.S.: Do you know if the entire album is recorded in Drop G#?

I’m back with another one.

Now there’s two issues that I ran into with this tab that you might run into as well:

  • I don’t have a seven string (yet)
  • Song is tabbed a whole step up.

I think the notes are correct because it resembles the rhythm guitar melody. I talked to my teacher and he confirmed that for now I can just ignore the bottom string and play the rest of the melody on my six string. It won’t sound as heavy but it’s a start, and it’s not too hard to play the opening tbh.

But yeah this is a mental note to myself that when I acquire a seven string that I need to tune every string down a whole step and then play what is described and see if that works.

Not necessarily VK, But Keijijou Ryuusei and Dress By BUCK-TICK are fairly easy songs to play on the guitar!! (* ^ ^ *)

this is probably so expected of me to say - but i think 咲人’s parts in ナイトメア’s tracks are some of the most interesting/rewarding to play

it’s kinda a crazy question lol cuz deviloof mucc and luna sea are all gonna have just about nothing in common wrt playstyles and composition - i’ve found my fav ends up being that sound just past the kotekote years that seems something like nu metal written by jazz musicians

at any rate, they’ve got hella songs up on songsterr if you’d wanna give any a try - Nightmare Tabs | Songsterr Tabs with Rhythm - idk about beginner necessarily but Tokyo Shounen, Believe, & Over are some of my fav tracks for very vkei sounding chord progressions just within my ability to play~

I’ve been trying to play guitar for 15 years, but i’m still so dumb… But i can still play 2 VK song (At least the rhythm part).
Horizon from D’espairsRay and owari to mirai from girügamesh (drop C or D for this one it seems to me…)
The tabs are easily found on the web.

Back again, boys. Any more recommendations you may have for me? I’ve been having fun with Glamorous Sky and Kimi to iu Hana (AKFG) recently, so I’d love to have more VK to do!
