Man On The Moon R.E.M. Guitar Tab

Talking to my wonderful guitar teacher Joachim Ribbentrop about which songs I would like to play, I came up with a teenage favorite of mine. Man On The Moon by R.E.M.. And Joachim, in no time, produced this beautiful solo guitar arrangement which is so much fun to play! I’m far from playing it perfectly, because the chorus ist pretty tricky. But I couldn’t wait to share it with you. Give it a try!

Background information

In case you need some background information on R.E.M., this is what Wikipedia says. „R.E.M. was an American rock band from Athens, Georgia. Formed in 1980 by drummer Bill Berry, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills, and lead vocalist Michael Stipe, who were students at the University of Georgia.

One of the first alternative rock bands, R.E.M. was noted for Buck’s ringing, arpeggiated guitar style; Stipe’s distinctive vocal quality, unique stage presence, and obscure lyrics; Mills’s melodic bass lines and backing vocals; and Berry’s tight, economical drumming style. In the early 1990s, other alternative rock acts such as Nirvana and Pavement viewed R.E.M. as a pioneer of the genre.

After Berry left the band in 1997, the band continued its career in the 2000s. With mixed critical and commercial success. The band broke up amicably in 2011 with members devoting time to solo projects. After having sold more than 85 million albums worldwide and becoming one of the world’s best-selling music acts.“
