In this lesson I will show you how you can play many of the most popular songs of all time using just four chords. These easy guitar songs will be instantly recognizable, and you will have a lot of fun learning and playing them.
Sounds too easy, doesn't it??
We all want to be able to pick up a guitar and play some great sing-along songs with friends and family. And this lesson will show you how you can fast-track your way to being able to play hundreds of easy guitar songs very quickly. And the secret behind many of these songs is very simple.
These are perfect songs for beginners to learn, using simple open chords. I will take you through how to play each chord as well.
I also show you how you can use a capo to take these easy chords and play even more easy guitar songs without having to learn any more chords!
The four chords we are using are G, C, D and E minor. I will show you exactly where to put your fingers on the guitar neck, and then show you how you can take these four chords and play many great songs.
When we play these four chords in a specific order, we can play a huge variety of well known songs in many different styles of music. Simply by changing the timing and strumming that we use. Changing the order of the chords in several different ways really opens things up as well, as you will see in the lesson.
The same chord progression can take you from playing Green Day to U2 to John Denver to Journey! It's an amazingly versatile trick to have up your sleeve 🙂
