Tagging this thread for when I'm bored.
Favourite album from last year probably was Monkeytown by Modeselektor. Friggin love Berlin
They're completely different but check out Punch Brothers; they're a bluegrass band but they play loads of covers and are currently, collectively, MY JAAAAM
If you have a Mac, there's this software called Capo which lets you slow down songs and make tabs for it, which is nice if you're trying to learn songs from an artist that isn't that popular. You can find it here ( http://supermegaultragroovy.com/products/Capo/). The trial limits you to 5 minute stretches.
Do what xyzygy said aswell, learning the notes on the fretboard will prove very useful in the long run
