Just looking to learn power chords and wanted to know some good, catchy songs to start with. Any suggestions?

Nothing too difficult please!

Thanks

How about some Johnny Cash tunes? Simple chords and great music.

Those are open chords.

Anyways, how about some Blink-182. I love their music. Its catchy and most of it is simple riffs and power chords.

Try out:
Dammit
All the Small Things

And for a little bit more of a challenge: (little bit being the key word)
Whats my Age Again?
The Rock Show
Stay Together for the Kids

A nice one is "Kristy are you doing okay" be Offspring. Acoustic, but nice and relaxed powerchords all the way. Good fun too.

Wow, that's a lot of Punk music suggested.

TS - what kind of music are you into? Punk, metal, rock, country, rap?????

Hard to give you a song to learn if we don't know what you are into.

First song i learnt was Holiday - Green Day , heaps of power chords and its got a easy little solo. Smells like teen spirit - Nirvana is also good

Holiday-Green Day


Great beginner song to learn. Catchy, 90% power chords, and a nice little solo to make you feel like you're good at something.
