Just wonder if there are some easy acoustic songs with mostly A and E chords. I find like the C and G chords a bit hard and there are no flow when I play songs with those chords.

Tnt by ACDC. It's always fun to play Acdc on acoustics, although I don't really know why.

Wee man, make up your own song, like E minor to A major and when you feel capable of something else stick in a G major or a D major.
Make a song up about your friends, the neighbours dog...anything!

Oh and Gibsongod42...you are a **** and i hope you lose some fingers

Though you should try to play songs you like so that it's motivation to learn more, if this is what you want:

Got you where I want you - The Flys

awesome song, incredibly easy, one of the firsts I learned. Fun to play with a partner!

doesn't remind me- audioslave- the main riff in the song is those chords over and over and can be played on acoustic.

But you really should get C and G down. I know you didn't ask but a very good way to learn C, G, and D is with the verses on You Shook Me All Night Long (ac/dc). You'll never get better if you limit yourself to what you can already play.

I wouldn't advertise a false premiss it took me a lot of hard work to get where i am in my playing and i'm not on the road constantly because i asked other people what songs would be easy to play alternating between 2 of the easiest chords in the book It takes steadfast dedacation not uh what would be easy to play I have spent years trying to become the best and some day you will see me and know that you will never achieve what I was born to be so **** off im not discouraging him/her I was simply doing what was done to me when someone told me i suck or told me to quit it drove me that much further to prove them wrong look under the surface next time you ****s

I've only been playing for a week now...I play one song--badly. House of the Rising Sun. I'd make it through the whole thing if I didn't have to f (iddle) with "F"

I'm kind of amazed and feel better after joining the forum to see how many folks have trouble with C and G, which I never had any real problem with.

I practice a "G-C-D-D-C-G" change over and over at the beginning and end of each practice session.

I agree with the original poster--learn House of the Rising Sun. Play it badly til your cat hides under the sofa, then play it some more. You'll get that C.

You = dumb.

Why don't you go back to driving your "tour bus" (aka, mom's Volvo). You're whole attitude is wholly transparent. You probably chose to be a jerk because you don't actually know any songs. Tool.

Threadstarter guy, I'm about to do you a nice turn here to make up for Gibsondouche:

Click ME

Those are some of the first songs that I learned because they have a written section explaining some low-level theory, and .mp3's of the author playing the song so you can hear the rythym. There's more than a couple two chord songs in that collection. when you're ready, try some more complicated stuff from the list--you'll be suprised how quickly you can progress once you get over the "chord change" hump.

Good luck!

heres another website that helped me along my way:
http://guitar.about.com/library/blguitarlessonarchive.htm
they also have easy songs at the end of each lesson to try out.


also staying on the white stripes theme how about:
Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground. The Intro is just some easy power chords and the verse is just A,G,C,D, i think .

good luck and stay with it
