Try "Wild Thing" by the Troggs - it uses basically 3 chords - A, D, E

However, being a I-IV-V progression, this can be applied to thousands of other tunes - Summertime Blues comes to mind.

excuse me but A D E is not I IV V it's I V VII.

No. A-D-E is I-IV-V.

A - B - C# - D - E - F# - G# - A
I - ii - iii - IV - V - vi - vii - I

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.
Did you know that the word "gullible" is not in any dictionary?

ok. I figured out the problem. when I refer to A D E as I V VII I am refering to the fretboard. it's the way I learned.
you are refering to scale. in that case you are correct.

most bands Ive played in use the same vocab as I do. A is I so D is V and E is VII.

I will remember that scale is used by this forum.

ok. on line it's I IV V...but that's according to scale reading.

when I use I V VII it refers to the fretboard.
most bands iIve been in use the same vocabularry as I do.
from here out I will abide by the online usage.

essentially we're talking about the same thing; just different language. :roll:

She's Electric by Oasis was the first song I managed to barre properly. :)

Franz Ferdinand uses a lot of bar chords. I remember when I first started out their songs looked complicated cause of all those numbers heh but theyre really simple if you can do the bar chords easily. Start out with Jacquline, it has a simple beginning with a lot of good introdcutory bar chords.

Good luck to ya 8)

edit: haha wrote out my whole message saying bar codes instead of bar chords. ah what sunday nights and the looming monday can do to ya.

Well, I've had some requests, but I'm going to play anyway.
