Fun and Easy Three Chord Guitar Songs.

Three chord guitar songs for guitar
3 Chord power chord progressions for rock explained.

Where would we be without three chord guitar songs? Many of the most famous songs in the world are formed by only three chord progressions for guitar.

These are really easy songs to learn.

This is where it gets fun. These 3 chord guitar songs are easy to learn. Songs that can serve both as beginner guitar songs and songs for someone who has been playing for years.

Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Johnny Cash and countless others did not come to the attention of the world with complex songs. No, many of the songs just had raw emotion and attitude going for them and the voice and personality of the singers that sang them.

3 chord progressions every guitarist should know.

Ok, what are these 3 chords that have launched thousands of songs?

Mostly the "I-IV-V" chords that I mentioned in my blues chords page. Simple straight forward nothing complex or hard to learn. There might be some variations and maybe even some 4 chords songs that use mostly the basic three chord progression with an altered chorus. Nothing you can't handle.

Quite a few of these songs are based on power chords. These are strong aggressive chords that are easy to form and use.

Here is a list of the most common three chord progressions for guitar. Print out the chord chart on this site and just strum and practice so that you can move smoothly and accurately between the 3 chords.

The key to learning chord changes is to move slowly between the chords with your fingers as relaxed as possible. This keeps the muscle tension out of the muscle memory.

Strength and flexibility are important - see my exercise pages for effective techniques that will speed your progress tremendously.

My suggestion on these is to find the original songs that you enjoy and play recordings so you can play along. Why? It's easier to learn to play it so it sounds right that way.

In order to prove that you can really play the guitar, a guitarist should be building their repertoire.

A selection of three chord guitar songs that you can play at a moments notice. Playing along with the originals will hone your skills.

There are thousands of three chord songs - buy a selection of books with three chord guitar songs. Take my advice, buy the ones with the play along CD's.

Chord progression practice tip

Practice changing from one chord to the other in these progressions with a metronome or a drum machine. Practice these enough and you will be ready for any 3 three chord guitar song.

Why you need to carefully develop Guitar Calluses.

Learning to play the guitar well takes many hours of practice. The careful building of calluses at a safe pace will pay off for you, in the long run, many times over.

Taking it too fast will be a guaranteed way to blisters that slow your initial period of learning and discourages many from even going far enough to play guitar with any amount of skill.

How to safely develop calluses
Safety = Not getting blisters

In the beginning of learning guitar, I found that forging ahead too fast is painful and blisters can happen pretty fast.

The best way to develop your calluses is to play guitar. There are other ways and different devices you can use and they do have their place.

Pocket callus builders are great for keeping up your callus building efforts.

The trick is to be in touch with your own body and know when you are just short of a blister.

Then stop! Put some ice on your fingertips (don't freeze your skin) to take the pain away and do something else for right then.

If you get a blister, hopefully, it will be a small one and will go away on its own.

If it's a large one that is between you and your Medical Doctor to decide what to do.

If your calluses get too thick, file them down to a manageable thickness. Thick calluses can catch on things a rip off exposing the meat underneath.


The Definitive Answer on Guitar Calluses

Take your time. Play your guitar. Use ice for pain, but don't freeze your fingers. Don't take it too fast and get a blister. 

Hope this helped, Thanks for reading, Roy
