Riff, or full song?
I think my first riff was "Jumping Jack Flash." My first full song was "Ring of Fire."

During my first aborted attempt at guitar, during group lessons, "Tom Dooley"

Thirty-three years later, my second attempt at guitar, from an instruction book, "Mull of Kintyre"

I've only been playing a few weeks now, but can switch 'tween A, D, and Em chords pretty well. I'm strumming on my own, practicing the switches, and I hear something in there, but haven't figured it out yet. Any ideas on songs using these 3 chords?
