This page about three chord songs came into being when a friend asked me to recommend some 1960s songs that use only G C and D. My first response was "Wouldn't A D E work a lot better?" My friend said something about transposing and using a capo, so I looked at some of my resources and decided to put this "busking" page together! Three chord guitar is not something I practise personally - I am like Guitar George in the Dire Straits song. I adore harmony, I may not know every chord, but I could certainly list and play you thousands BUT not everyone wants to commit to much rhythm work and G C D is a great starting point for beginners. (Especially if you can bring yourself to throw in an Em and make it a four chord instead of a three chord trick)
So, here we go with some three chord guitar - in G for now, but later today I will add three different keys in case your three chords are different - and I hope you will enjoy it.
