Check out a book from L&M called Acoustic Rock (Guitar Cord Songbook) by Hal Leonard.

It has 80 songs and some are easy once you have the strum pattern down.
Blue Suede Shoes, 3 cords
Blowin in the wind ,4 cords
Seven bridges road, 3 cords D,C,G/B
My fav..Blind melon, No Rain, 4 cords E,D,A,G5

Check out the songs on You Tube to get the pattern and rythem then go for it.

If you know Em, G,C, D,A and the occasional Bm you can every Green Day song know to mankind. That being said you asked for the best songs ever and I don't know if they are in that categorey.

Knockin on heaven's door. My favorite jam tune 'cause I can actually remember all the words. G/D/Am. Helpless by neil young is pretty similar D/A or A7/G. The strum pattern is pretty obvious for both.

Cap in Hand

How about "Cap in Hand" by the Proclaimers? 3 different patterns with 3 chords...a bonus is that chicks dig this one, especially if you can pull off the Scottish accent. :wink:

Verse D G A D G A D G A D G A
Bridge A D G D A D
Chorus G D A D G D A D G D A D G A

id say the easyest is about a girl by nirvana mixes up some open and power chords and its soo easy...(first song my first band ever cover:D)


its pretty much a mix of the Em chord and the open G chord (i think?) just back between those 2 for the verse and the chorus is something like...

Dm Am Fm(i think??) not too sure on my power chords right now:eek: i donno look up the tab im sure there is a million different versons!

Do I dare say....Takin' Care of Business, don't know the chords, but just listen to it in your head
That's the song that a lot of CDN guitarists started with in the 70's

Oh! You're a Hendrix fan! How about:

Can you See Me
Foxy Lady
Belly Button Window
Like a Rollin' Stone

And speakin of Rollin' Stone, try some stones, pretty simple chord songs like:

Sympathy For The Devil
Stray Cat Blues
Jumpin' Jack Flash
Midnight Rambler - YEAH!
