First, you should invest in a capo. Second, power chord songs or do some speed building exercises on B and E.

The gstring is the best string

i have a capo, i only tuned it up for a specific song wich had only the g string tuned up to an a..

I think i'll do some speed exercising on the B and E string, good idea thanks

I feel for ya. The G string is teh best string. Youd be better off with only a G string than having all but one,

When I started playing i had an old guitar with no G or D string. Teh first songs I learned were

Come as you are - Nirvana (only the main riff, no chorus sorry (E, A, only)
Blister in the sun - Violent femmes - Bass line (E, A only)
Duelling Banjos - (that creepy line from Deliverence - First part - B,e, only)

I know its a pretty sad list, but itll keep your fingers moving at least

Also, GreenDay - American idiot - or any power chord song for that matter.
Dammit - Blink 182 - main riff
