What type of music do you like? I genreally reccomend This Years Love, by David Grey, for the Open chords.

Hmmm....."Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You" by Led Zeppelin....lots of nice chords in that song.

Look in oldies songs...like Elvis Presley.

What...I ain't a noob haha

I'm assuming the other guy is a beginner, so I was thinking he should start out with some oldies.

...maybe I'll look up oasis though...I've never played any songs from them actually.

I say go with some oldies, like Roy Orbison, Elvis and Buddy Holly. Great songs and they are mostly chords.

Otherwise I'm kinda in the same position as you, I'm looking for some songs like these.

Oh, and "The Weight" by The Band is a simple song with like 3 chords. I think its Amaj, C#min and Dmaj... you can't quote me on the C#min, though

I'm not really a beginner to guitar but to chords I am. I can play well and I just need practice with chords in general.

Its easier if you learn songs you know. Just have a look at a few and pick the easiest to play. It may take you a while to find one you like but as you learn more it becomes easier to try new songs.

Real chords have more than a 5th and a root. Plenty of red hot chilli pepper stuff off By The Way has some full barre chords that will help your finger strength etc.

find a song you like and learn it. if it's hard that's even better because it will make you better faster. if you play only easy songs you're not going to get the hang of it for a while
