Its amazing how some genius songwriters have come up with hundreds of songs by only using major minor progressions.

Simplicity sounds sweet...

Hey hey! Vic,

Thanks mate.

What have we unleashed upon our poor unsuspecting guitar playing friends across the pond.

Staying off topic for just a moment more, watch this Vic :

Numb - Linkin Park
Nobody's Home - Avril Lavigne
American Pie - Don McLean
Accidentally in Love - Counting Crows
Zombie - The Cranberries

There are so many songs you can play with those it isn't funny. I can take the majority of pop songs and play it in simple chords. Add A to that and some variations of all those and you merely need an ipod to remember how the song goes!

It is difficult to answer when one does not understand the question.

Crocodile rock, Duke of Earl, Stay... by Jackson Browne,

a lot of songs use the Root, relative minor, fourth, fifth, progression ... regardless of root key.

Something I've noticed recently - comes of picking up a guitar and playing along with the radio every time a song I know comes on! - a lot of Sam Cooke songs are in G, Em, C and D, although in various keys. Try "What A Wonderful World," Chain Gang," "Twistin' The Night Away" and "Cupid" for starters!

:D :D :D

One of my favs: Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show it is just GDEmC and GDCC and a nice easy strum and you are off to the races.

Check out Matt Andersons Version of this too it is great
