3 Simple guitar songs

Here I’m going to throw in 3 simple guitar songs (and popular ones)! I think at this point you may be just very interested in including some more songs to your repertoire. For this song, we’re mostly going to be looking at 2 chord songs. Which should be very easy for you guys to tackle at with the help of the chord charts found on Easy Guitar Chords. I have not included any analysis for any of the chords as they are only two chords.

The simple guitar songs have a purpose here, they should be able to assist you in practicing chord changes (have a look at this article here for information on how to change chords smoothly ), and also be able to to help you in practicing strumming without having to worry about changing chords! That way you can focus more on strumming.

I’ll leave the bridge section of this song as a bit of a challenge. They use the chords Em7 and C/E. These two are know as chord extensions and alternate bass (or slash chords). I shall cover these probably in later posts to come! But you may choose to learn and tackle them right now if you’re up for the challenge!
