If you're looking for easy songs I don't think its all about the amount of chords in the song, but more in the difficulty of the chords used.

to be honest the progression is the worst thing about learning a song in my opinion

Yeah All Along the Watchtower. I like Dylan's version better anyway. Every Rose Has Its Thorn is the song I think of every time I wanna play something with three chords. Try Johnny Cash. That'd be perfect.

every blink 182 song ever


I'm not much of a Blink fan but i don't think there are any 3 chord songs by them.
Not such a great joke.

Arctic Monkeys - 505 (2 Chords, Dm & Em)
The Beatles - Love Me Do
Nirvana - Polly
The Ramones - I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend
The Specials - A Message To You Rudy

Johnny Cash stuff doesnt have many chords, look at Falsom Prison Plues.

Hotel Yorba by White Stripes is just G, C, D. Someone whos been playing two weeks should be able to bang that one out

you want to get going with your chords jam to Hey Joe. Its E C G D A over and over again for the whole song. The riff is the Em pent + C so if you hammer on the whole chord on the after playing the open strings it sounds pretty cool. fun tune to practice too

Coil/Recoil by Tigers Jaw has only three chords to it. In fact, most Tiger's Jaw songs only use 3-5 chords mainly. I've tabbed out most of their songs on this site and they're certainly easy, check out the band if you're interested:

EDIT: Oh and Brand New is much more popular, Play Crack The Sky only has 3 or 4 chords to it, and they're pretty easy.

How about Sugarland's, "One Blue Sky". True it's four chords, (C,F G, and the dreaded A minor), but anybody can release some serious stress and aggression on this anthem.

(I'll give you a hint, in this power chord, country rock extravaganza, Sugarland sounds like the Who being fronted by Reba MacEntire).

Sample here: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Sugarland+One+blue+sky&x=16&y=14

With the exception of. "My Back Pages", most of Dylan is 3 chords. However, "Blowing in the Wind", while being only 3 chords, is way too insipid to garner my recommendation.

"One Blue Sky" would require the F chord to be a barre at the 1st fret. Would that be a problem?

This is a great suggestion for someone to work on their rhythm chops. Dave Mason and Jimmy Hendricks also did fine covers of this tune.

Grinderman - I don't need you to set me free. 2 chords, Aminor and G
Tom Waits - Gun Street Girl, - Dminor, A7

Any 12 bar blues is gonna be 3 chords more or less too, listen to some muddy waters, or howlin wolf, if you can get the feel of it then you'll be alright.

Listen to the black keys album chulahoma and then listen to Junior Kimbrough (cus the album is a cover of all his songs) and pick something off there, most of the songs are 1 or 2 chords. You just need to know the riffs.

People are strange by the Doors is 3 chords as far as i'm aware, Emin, Amin and B

Hey Hey my my by neil young is 3 chords, it's in Dstandard so just play it in standard as Amin, F and G
