Topic: Songs with A D E

Hi Everyone,

  I'm looking for any and all songs with just the chords of A D and E . I thought this might help lots of people that are just learning, as these are easy chords in progression, or if anyone has a group of other chords in an easy progression. I really feel this would be of so much help to people just starting out. Thanks so much for any input!

Re: Songs with A D E

A-D-E . . . is a 1-4-5 blues progression.  There are thousands of songs that follow a 1-4-5 progression and can be transposed to A-D-E. 

A couple of easy ones:  "Old Time Rock and Roll",  "Mercedes Benz",  "Margaritaville",  "Kansas City",  "Johnny Be Good", and etc. etc.   And yes . . . "Louie, Louie" fits the bill also . . .

My teacher taught me a bluegrass style of "House of the Rising Sun" that is A, D, E with one G thrown in.

I'll put up the chord progression in a bit.  Just wanted to respond before I forgot.

Ok, this is what I have for Chord Progression, it's Appalachia/Blue grass style.

AADD
AGEE
AADD
AEAA

This is the same for each stanza.   I have done it mostly strum style, but, it sounds pretty good with a finger picking chord style as well.

Yeah, I find the B chords difficult as well, which is why I work with my teacher on so many Beatles Songs since they have a lot of B chords in them.

Anyway, try that chord sequence out and let me know what you think.  I haven't done "House of the Risng Sun" this style in months.  But, it fell into place for me pretty fast once I started to tinker.    So tinker with it, play with it.

Enjoy

Yes, I have that as well.  It's the first way I learned to play that tune.  It's a good one for finger picking chords.  Plus it helped me to handle the F chord transition to and from better.

In my "Old time String band" group class, we have mandolin and violin players (and even an occasional accordion player).  And we do a lot of Irish and Acadian tunes (coastal Canada region) and Scottish tunes that do a lot of ADE.
