Hi all,

In college at the moment and looking to build up my collection of songs.!

Would prefer learn quickly as opposed to having perfect versions of the songs, so I'm looking for 4-chord versions of songs or similar.

Like G, Em, C, D kinda songs. Or easy songs like Good Riddance.

Not into punk or rock songs, into chart music and bits of indie.

Suggestions and links and help please.!!

Oh and its for acoustic

So, this is for you to show off at college?

For shame.
This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is MINE.

Why 4 chords?

Play Molly's Lips from Nirvana. Two chords. Perfect non-rehearsed encore.

- James Iha



Rock on y'all!

Betterman-pearl jam

Its like 3-4 chords, if you got a friend to jam with you, you could do a little improv lead on acoustic.

Building on this recommendation: Molly's Lips is a cover of a late 80's/early 90's song by the Vaselines, who I highly recommend you look up, as their music from this period is *exactly* what you are looking for.
