The problem I have is, I mess about with some chords and then I find something I like but it sounds really familiar. Is this a real song?

Chords in this order
Am, C, E, repeat
Fingering strings A, G, B

Probably been used 100s of times. What you do with the melody is what makes it original.


It's a sequence used in many traditional folksongs.
ahh right, got ya. Thanks!

What is the most popular song using these chords but fingered?
Makes me think of one of the phrases in House of the Rising Sun. I'd say that was pretty popular...

And what do you mean, 'real song'? It's not a 'fake' song?? It doesn't have to be a recorded, copyrighted piece by a professional to be 'real'
