Topic: Good starter songs

I started playing about a month ago and

im looking for a good starter song

I have memorized almost every basic chord there is

except for b and f! I have a pretty good vocal range . so thats not gonna be a problem

Re: Good starter songs

Try the 2-3-4 chord songbook. Not many F's or B's there.

Good Luck!

<b></b><font color="darkblue"></font> Yes Bob dylan's ''Knocking on Heavens Door'' is simpel to play but not that fun for beginners I think. I have soon played a Year now (in an age of 15) and I think You should look here <a href="" target="_blank"> … ok=My%20so ngbook</a>   Or   here   <a href="" target="_blank"> … ok=the%20b est%20of%20the%20best</a>   these are my two songbooks that can come in handy=P (sorry my English sucks.. but I'm drom Norway.. =P) good luck

Re: Good starter songs

If there is a song with F or B on lots of those on the Chordie site, you can hit the TRANSPOSE CHORD bar and alter the chords as it suits you.

If you have a problem 'barring' (as I do 'cos I had a hand injury) you can play F on 1st 5 strings only and - 'Lonnie Donnegan' style - use thumb on 6th, dead opposite ist finger that holds down 1st 2 strings.  Working up the neck using SAME finger placings (and thumb)plays F# G Ab A Bb and your B etc

Re: Good starter songs

John Denver Country roads was my first one.

No Fs or Bs in that one.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: "Henry Lee"

It's only got four chords (am, dm, c, g) and is beautiful (and a bit macabre <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_razz.gif" border=0 alt="Razz">)
