Derek's beginner songbook
I'm a beginner myself so I'm trying to find some songs I can practice easy chords on and these seem to do the trick.
K. Relient, Bryan Adams, Nirvana, Beatles, John Lennon, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Green day, Oasis, Van Morrison, Coldplay, Switchfoot, Gin Blossoms, Simple Plan...
Hannah Montana, Taylor Swift and Colbie Caillat
The hardest part of playing someone else's music is that they created it based on their ability. I lack a lot of ability, and therefore seek songs that a) kick ass, b) sound good, c) sound good to others, and d) fairly easy to play. It's a work in progress, and no, none of these are my works, so thanks to those who worked tirelessly, allowing me to strum along and make these tunes sound I believe they should.
Ben Folds Five, Eiffel 65, Tom Cochrane, Smashing Pumpkins, Spoon, Audioslave, Blind Melon, U2, Iggy Pop, Guns N'Roses, Clash, Steve Miller Band, Foo Fighters...
