So I've studied basic chords and can get the changes fairly fast (still having trouble with G major though!) - now I want some simple tooons to strum and hum to convince myself I can play. Where can I find free chords and words please?Even Dylan would do !!

Not trying to sound like a jerk..but...Um...here?

Did you try the 'Easy Songs' topic of these forums? :)

Do a google search for Cowpie, if you like country type stuff.

Just google "free guitar tablature chords" and you'll get a whole lot to choose from. But, first, check out our Easy Songs Section. You can also Request chords and tablature if we don't already have it in Easy Songs.

+1 for Easy Songs
+1 for http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/

And... I did read your other post so perhaps it could be also interesting http://lacuerda.net/

http://www.azchords.com is a really good website to get your basic chords and lyrics for a song.

Some good and popular ones are also available at -

http://www.guntheranderson.com/v/indexa.htm (Nice site for chord sheets).

Have fun !

If I'm looking for tabs, the first place I look is http://www.guitarnotes.com - it automatically links to other sites such as ultimate guitar.

Unfortunately, though, a lot of tabs are just bare chords - no strumming patterns, etc. You're still going to have to put some work in yourself! Ultimately, it's far more rewarding to work a song out yourself - it may be more time-consuming, and frustrating at times, but immensely satisfying when you finally get there!

:D :D :D

Ditto on using the Easy Songs Forum or the Lesson. Not every song is there you might want, but a darn good cross section of styles.

And in both places you can be assurred a lot of effort has gone into presenting a version of the song a novice can attempt with a chance of success.

Many, many thanks to all. I went straight to Easy Songs and there's enough there to keep me going for a while (Freight Train? We're that old my wife's cat was called Nancy Whisky but NO I didn't know her then!!) I've spent a lot of time searching for decent sites but you've all saved me any further looking.

Just a word of caution from a formerly very confused beginner. I used to grab chord charts from just anywhere on the Web only to find that they sounded wrong. Turns out, some of what you find on the Web has been figured out by ear by folks that perhaps aren't all that good at figuring stuff out by ear. So if you decide to take chord charts or tab from random places on the Web, be sure to scrutinize what you end up with.

That being said, I've found the lessons on guitarnoise to be an very high quality.

Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. Psalm 33:2-4

Most of what's on the net is wrong, some just slightly and others are like "did they listen to the same song" . There is some good stuff out there though you just have to search for it.

The ESD should keep you going for awhile.

In addition to the other recommendations, I have been using

http://www.justinguitar.com
http://www.powertabs.net (not really for simple chordy songs though)

and youtube.
