Girl (Ned/chav) annoying me on the bus.

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

Thanks for all the help people. She seems to like all music, but she like Eric Clapton and Oasis quite a bit. About a girl and Bouleward of broken dreams sound good.

On the record, Boulevard of Broken Dreams is in F minor. You can teach her a simpler version though using Em, G, D, A. If she likes Oasis, Wonderwall is a great one for a beginner as its easy but sounds great.

Green day?! Nirvana?! Gaaawwd... what's wrong with a bit of Dylan..?! Simple open string chords designed for ACOUSTIC gutiar... Gs Cs and Ds... perfect...

If she likes Oasis, then your problem is solved. Basically every Oasis song out there is a lesson in playing open chords. Look 'em up and go at 'em. I'd recommend something like Live Forever to start off with...nothing too difficult in there.
