Hey, i played guitar about 2 years, i want to sing a bit while playing. So i need a song with simple chord and easy singing, doing chord is absolutely not the gender of song i normaly do (i mostly play shred...).

Any suggestion? (Simple chord, simple singing, doesn't matter if the song i bad)(No metal singing, i can't get that tone now...)(No Jonas Brother plz)

Thanks!

What I Got by Sublime is probably the easiest I'm pretty sure it's just G and A, although it might be G and something else.

Ya know, before I read you usually do shred I figured that from your icon. Make a chord version of Kryptonite, it's very easy to do. Soften up the vocals and add the notes together for chords and substitute the power chords (if you want to) for a slower open string chord for the same scale. Don't palm mute (which is probably obvious). As for the solo, skip it altogether.

You don't need to choose a song that is already acoustic, some songs are really easy to convert 'em. Also, "Scars" by Papa Roach has an acoustic version.
I've gotten a lot of LOLs in my time but I choose not to sig them to not look like a pretentious douchebag

Just another metal head with an ego problem. Grow the hell up and learn to respect for other genres of music.
