Hey all,

I'm giving a demonstration speech for a public speaking course. My topic is beginning playing the guitar. I'm trying to emphasize how easy it is to get started by using only the G, C, and D chords. I was compiling a list of songs that use only these chords (trying to find well known ones) and was wondering if anyone would be interested in helping me.

Here is the list so far:

Sublime – What I got
Any One Else But You (cheesy song from Juno)
Third Eye Blind – Semi-charmed Life
Bob Dylan – Knocking on Heaven’s Door (I know it's technically Am, but sounds good regardless)
Social Distortion – Story of My Life
