So, I only have 4 strings on my guitar. E, A, D and G... The B and high e broke. I am in Iraq and dont have any means of getting new strings other than by mail which takes approx. 2 weeks. And on top of that, I just moved to a new base so I am not sure how the mail system is working here yet. It may take even longer. So, I was wondering if there are any decent or at least half way decent songs of any genre that I can learn and practice until I can get some new strings? ... Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Any Soulfly songs, because Max Cavalera only uses 4 strings on his guitar as well.
Early CKY stuff is like this too, because Deron had only the E, A, D and G strings on his guitar. 'Shippensburg' is a pretty cool song to check out.

Most older CKY songs. Derron only used 4 strings on his Parker.

Damn. Too late.

Outstanding. Thank you. I was about to go out of my mind. Hahaha. I will check some of those songs out and see what I can manage to play.

rhythm parts of a lot of songs will only be on the lower strings. metallica has a lot of those (a lot of metal bands will too). green day has a lot of those (most punk/punkish bands will too).

loads of the offspring, metallica's for whom the bell tolls and most of master of puppets.

lake of fire is a song by Meatpuppets
but yeah, power chord songs are probably the best if you don't have any e and b strings.
Most Ramones song could work
