this is a general request to anyone who can help. i am looking for a list of as many tunes as you can think of that are good for easy acoustic strumming. doesnt have to be limited to 3 chords but you get the idea. i had the acoustic out over the weekend with some fellow partiers and i was trying to think of some. i thought of a few,but theres soooooooo many of them out there that i felt like i was missing a ton and that there must be a list somewhere. and if not, perhaps there will be now.trying to put this together so next time ill have like 100 songs at my disposal (even though I,IV,V all night would get boring, you get the idea.) that are easy to remember. style doesn't matter a lot but mostly looking for like classic rock,blues,folk,pop etc.

What I Got by Sublime only has two.

A lot of Voltaire songs do. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuwYRLAJcEc&feature=related

That's particularly awesome. It's in D standard though.

All Along the Watchtower, I play Jimi's chords when I sing it acoustically, but Dylan's chords would work as well.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.

wicked game

there's a bunch of versions, even one by HIM (just turn each major chord into a powerchord and u'll have the same as them)

B-Minor, A-Major, E-Major

pretty easy

IIRC, the song 'Dirt' by Static-X only has a single chord.
Sworn enemy of the private investigator.

Bob Dylan - North country blues

Only 2 chords, bitch.

You could go the pop route

I'm Yours - Jason Mraz
Where is the Love - Black Eyed Peas
Superman - Five for Fighting

Those three all have pretty much the same chord progression, and they're four chord songs, for the most part, too, I believe. Piece of cake. There are multiple videos going around with compilations of songs that all have the same sound.

Are you asking if midgets can draw people that are themselves smaller than the average person, or if midget drawings in general are smaller?

People keep asking us where Paul is. That's a really funny question. See, if Paul was still in the band then we wouldn't have a new fucking record. That's why Paul isn't in the band anymore. (by Maynard James Keenan)

I think the quote was "One chord is fine. Two chords is pushing it. Three chords and you're into jazz."
It's a good quote

3 chord songs....Green Day (if you're that desperate), Bright Eyes and The Dresden Dolls have a few

You don't just buy new strings for a BC Rich.

For a guitar that metal, you have to dissect a black cat alive at the full moon and stretch its guts into strings.
