Awesome Power Chord Songs

There are THOUSANDS of great Power Chord songs around and I plan on expanding this list as soon as a I get a few minutes to sit and think about it and do some listening - there are not many lessons for these songs (not sure why I have not done them yet) and not many in the App either - BUT I'm going to hit this very soon and get a whole bunch of the song lessons done... there will also be a lot more when I hit the Beginner Rock Guitar Module (Grade 3!) but that's a while off yet!

Songs great as exercises

I chatted about this as we went - but I think using songs is a great way of practising this stuff!

For Slides:

Cocaine (Eric Clapton) - no lesson yet and not on the app! But basically: EEDE and then E D C B

Song 2 (Blur): Lesson - not in the app yet.

Anarchy In The UK (Sex Pistols) - no lesson yet and not on the app! But basically: Verses are CCCCCCCCCCCFE and then Chorus is GGGGGGGGGGGG FFFFFFF EEEE DDDD

For Crossing Strings:

Molly Lips (Nirvana) - no lesson yet and not on the app! But basically: G and C for the whole thing.

Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana) - Lesson - Not in app. Has Katana Patch too!

For Adding Palm Mute and generally mixing it all together!

All The Small Things (Blink-182) - is IN THE APP (hooray!) and awesome for palm mute and string crossing!

Fly Away (Lenny Kravitz)  - Lesson - I need to check the app! A AAA B CCCCC GGGGG DDDDD
