Ok I know this is stupid but since I just started guitar sessions my teacher wants me to find a song using the chords:
C A G E and D

He said Oasis has loads of songs using those but I can't find any, please can someone help me. Thanks.

in that particular order?

you can fit any song to C Am Dm G ha. idk about the E

let me find some songs then.

Edit: are you looking at the right place? I searched for Oasis and clicked on the VERY FIRST LINK "Be Here Now (album) Chords" and the VERY FIRST SONG had those chords in it!

idk if all major, that wont be diatonic and would sound somewhat out of place.

Idk then, ask him again if he really wants them all in mayor.

C A G E D

They dont all have to be in it.

There are billions of songs that use only those chords, and they sound good. We've been hearing those chords so long we're used to them even though they aren't technically diatonic (sort of are, look up borrowing).

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Simple Man

Led Zeppelin - Over The Hills and Far Away (almost the whole song)

Using your ear will help you learn way more, but I'll give it to you anyway.

It goes C - G - Am, all are arpeggiated. The song is in Am, is that allowed?

Rock

I'd say about 95% of classic rock follows this system, as does most new rock (I'm guessing, I don't listen to new rock). Here's the plan, list ten of your favorite songs and I'll check and see which are built off of these chords.
