Alright, I got this date and I'm going to teach her to play the guitar or whatever haha. She's an absolute beginner, so I need an easy recognisable song with simple chords and rhythm. It is supposed to be a fun thing, not a ****ing practice session. Any suggestions?
#4
Wild thing by the troggs.... three chords doesn't get much simpler.

But it depends on what kind of music she likes.

I do hate Oasis but yes, Wonderwall is the song of the laid ones.

But hear me out when I say that I do NOT condone playing Oasis songs for any other reasons than getting some.

You Suffer by Napalm Death or Black Wedding by Sunn O))). nothing simpler than those.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
#12
Horse with No Name has only two chords with two strings in them, over and over and over.

Or, how about Mr. Jones - Counting Crows.
I think that's mostly three chords.

Edit: Billy Joel and John Cougar Mellancamp songs also have a lot of three chord songs, seeing as its a chick she probably might go for those. There's a couple of Bon Jovi songs that are fairly easy too.

Helpless by Neil Young... three chords, and if you flip the progression then you've also taught her Dylan's Knockin on Heaven's Door. You look all rock folkie sensitive and you get two for the price of one.

Well, Acquiesque is an AWESOME song. Apart from that, you are right.

RHCP - Suck my Kiss/Under the Bridge. Not only will you get laid, but you will also get to use your guitar

Patience by GNR or Knockin on Heavens door (might be a little to much for a beginner)

lol at the "easy" suggestions in this thread.

Wonderwall might be too difficult for a beginner even, but it screams for some pussy.

You should try teaching them something that looks easy, and you say is easy but is actually quite difficult. That way, when they find they can't do it, they will be left in greater awe of your talents and be more impressed

Disregard everyone else has said, and ask her what kind of music she likes.

being tough a song she loves >>>>>>>>> being tough a random song she is just familiar with.

This is a pretty easy and laidback song that the chicks always like

I don't know why this doesn't get people laid as much as Wonderwall.

It's a boring song though. Very very boring.

Boulevard of Broken Dreams should suit nicely.

It's basically Wonderwall, except you don't have to use a capo

I personally wouldn't try to teach a 'chord song' to a total beginner. I know people who just got hella frustrated trying to master the chords. The date might get a little awkward if that were to happen.

I'd probably go for Twinkle Twinkle Little Star's melody or something like that.
