Hey.. I've been playing electric guitar for 3 years of my life, but recently bought a beautiful Crimson red Washburn off a friend. I've been learning good chord songs like Hero by Enrique Inglesias, Wonderwall by Oasis, Fade to black by Metallica, and others. I'm just curious.. What are some great easier relaxing chord songs you guys know?

Exit Music (For A Film) by Radiohead
Walking After You by Foo Fighters
Miracle by Foo Fighters
Here Comes The Sun by The Beatles
Trains by Porcupine Tree
Unintended by Muse (edit: it's fingerpicked, so, never mind)
Heaven Beside You by Alice In Chains (although it has a part that's kind of tricky if you're going for acoustic-style)
Over Now by Alice In Chains
Mother by Pink Floyd
Angie by The Rolling Stones

And by the way, Krieger91, "into" is all together.

Jack Johnson!

Alice in Chains has some great acoustic stuff too, especially nutshell and the other Jar of Flies stuff. Daughter by Pearl Jam also fun if you don't mind the tuning.

90% of Jack Johnson, and 90% of Slightly Stoopid.
Check out "Upside Down" by Jack Johnson, and "Collie Man" by Slightly Stoopid.
I wouldn't say that either of the two artists play stuff that are "easy" to play, but they do play stuff that's great to learn and progress with.
Gotta finish my work, then play some grooves, so I can turn my room into a house of blues...

1st Bolded Song: That song is more so depressing and whatnot than soothing...I still like it though.

2nd Bolded Song: In the studio version is fingerpicked, but if you watch practically any video of it live he plays it with a pick, which works...and fingerpicking is pretty fun, and this is a good song to learn it with.

I suggest Any Jack Johnson, James Taylor, "Champagne Supernova" by Oasis, "Fake Plastic Trees" by Radiohead, A bunch of Coldplay stuff.
