Can anybody suggest some easy well known songs too help me learn courds?

I've pretty much mastered Bob Dylan's - House of the Rising sun and thats really helped. Now I know Am, C, D, E and F (although I am having some trouble barring so I play it 003211)

How well can you play?
Also you mean Chords :P

If you are starting off and want to learn simple stuff/get used to it, learn Blink 182 tunes. Everyone my age did and they've progressed well. I started both bass and guitar with Blink 182 and its helped me alot

The chords to Freebird by Lynyrd Skynyrd are quite easy, though some barring is required i believe.

Also try Wonderwall or Don't Look Back in Anger by Oasis, both good beginner songs for chords.

Also in your place, i would try to play Janis Joplin and Big Brother & The Holding Company - Summertime, hearing only the voice, together with only a few chords or even challenging some solos. I think this is an excellent example how beautiful lyrics and voice can be inspiring.

Id be careful with the 0 on the low e string in that f of yours ... when it works it will be great .. when it doesnt it will be real bad)

lol its still oong after i deleted loads

good chordy songs ...

nothing else matters ... nice bit of a technicaly thing at the start also which is very playable but will take a while to really master though - but the chordy parts of the song are fun to play so thats cool .... also the solo is easy and sounds good - unless your on acoustic)

Its also in e minor rather than a minor like most of the suggestions so far - so slightly different set of chords but they still sound good

AC DC

really good solid chord based songs ... generally a minor ... but they chane it up a bit.

hells bells, back in black, highway to hell (downtuned tho - no prob if u have fixed bridge and a tuner) ... tbh ALL their songs have great solid chord progressions which will get you to the point where you can hear what chord will work after the one your playing - moreover playing them confidently. ACDC did wonders for my playing.

Pink floys have some good progressions ... but ACDC are my favorite for good solid simple chords. they also tend to rag them so it really gives you chance to practise the changes rather than worry about individually picking the notes. Solve one problem at a time.

what are you into music wise?

rock? punk? metal before 2000? after 2000? (big difference in style there)

Funk?


The main chords to learn are at the low end of the neck

E minor, G major, a major and minor. D major (and minor but i dont like the one at the low end of the neck), C major
(id avoid b minor unless you like a challenge - its a hard chrd to play)


they will keep you going for ages. The strings are longest so you get way more tone and volume.

From there you ahve your barre chords - i wouldnt start with these because they are quite tricky and require some hand strength and fitness - as you found with f which is the hardest to play probably. Once you get them down though they provide the base for loads of really cool sounding stuff.

The point is that with guitar you are constantly solving problems. Its really important to break these down into smaller problems and solve those. Otherwise it all gets a bit much and stops being fun.

Hence programs like guitar pro ... (which is a lot better than powertab ... ive used both for a long time and actually bought guitar pro)


The irony is that the 4 chord shapes for 7th's are actually easier to play than major / minor - once you can barre - but technically a bit harder to explain where they come from - so dont be afraid to learn some funky sounding chords (with add9 or 13 on them) - they sound good (so maybe you want to buy a chord dictionary?)

The golden rule with guitar though is that *every* note is a good note in the right place - if it doesnt slide up half a fret and look like you meant to do it (do it again in a few bars and call it fusion). If it sounds good figure out how to play it - odds are it will be some wierd add 9 with a augmented 5th or something - but that name doesnt matter - only how it sounds matters.

just remember to write it down.

Probably gone way ott there.

Yes, BUT thing is...

When you play the chorus, you play the chords with a bit more aggression (at least thats how it sounds on the studio recording) so i wouldn't recommend the bottom C Maj Chord since you can't control the ringing once you've struck the chord. One of the benefits of barring is that you can instantly mute the strings after you've played the Chord, using the barring finger.

Therefore, i would use the barred C on the A string (3rd fret), and THEN use the low D Maj chord.

ahh fair point!!

but i only play it on my acoustic and it sounds fine

but anyway barre chords don't have to be played completely you can just play the power chord which makes it easier (just can't do that if the song requires a picking melody thats on a barre :D) so if you can't get the hang of them at the moment don't worry!!

Good website for beginners and people who just want to progress a bit further. He's got a great video walkthrough of learning to play Johnny B Goode by Chuck Berry :) Link Below

Half a listen to this, Start from 1:16->1:40 roughly. At about 1:30 the part Im looking for starts, Its a slight change to the riff's ending.

give that a try, i think the bit your after is the 12 14 12 14 14 14 14 14 12, i tried it sounds about right just gotta get the bends right, but theres plenty of different tabs out there with different ways to do it.

Hi guys *waves*
So, I just got myself a new guitar and I've put it in open D - I've started playing around with it, got used to a few shapes and how the strings relate to standard tuning. I've got the basics of one song written and ready, but I plan on writing quite few in open tunings. Can any recommend me some songs in an open tuning (I can capo it if it's not in D) so I can get some ideas and learn some new shapes etc.
I have guitar pro.

Thanks guys :)

what type of music are you after?

There some good blues and slide tabs out there for Open D.

But if thats not your thing i know bands/people such as Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell's have a few Open D songs aswell as Bob Dylan who uses open D and E (Capo open D 2nd fret i think.)

Thats just a few examples as i have no idea what music your into, but if all else fails start googling then fire the results into a tab website.

If anyone could give me some tabs for that in the closest tuning (tuning won't be told by CKY themself) that would be great.

This is the closest I found, but the tone is just a bit too high I think, maybe it's played in Open D or maybe even half a step down from Open D ?
