I`ve been practicing chords and the odd riff for about a month now and would like to play a song or two using fairly basic chords , can anyone recomend something for me that would be easilly recognisable no matter how bad the chord change is(within reason) so i can get an indication how i`m progressing, many thanks
Smooth by Carlos Santana
Back In Black by AC/DC
Wonderwall by Oasis
Live And Let Die by Paul McCartney And The Wings
Believer by The Monkees

thanks for the compliment man!
Molly's Lips - The Vaselines. (although Nirvana's version is unarguably better. you could argue, but you'd be wrong). It has 2 chords. G and C. All the way through...

Maybe thats a bit too easy..
Rig Winter 2017:

Fender Jazzmaster/Yamaha SG1000
Boss TU-3, DS-2, CS-3, EHX small stone, Danelectro delay
Laney VC30-112 with G12H30 speaker, or Session Rockette 30 for smaller gigs
Elixir Nanoweb 11-49 strings, Dunlop Jazz III XL picks
Shure SM57 mic in front of the amp
I'm not sure what you mean by this. But I was playing "Father and Son" by Cat Stevens with my pupil once. It's quite easy but it's not a standard feeling in some parts. So, it's a beginner song but not the easiest.
If you're proceeding, you could try "Burden" by Opeth. It's with easy chords and (typically for Opeth) odd changes. I just recommend this song because I'm fanatic about this song at the time.

You should be able to listen to the songs on youtube. The chords can be found here on UG.

Have fun!

Papa Roach has a lot of easy songs (if you are into that style) Disturbed songs are fairly easy too,just skip the solos. Cheers.
