Justinguitar - Free Guitar Lessons

Songs for IF-4

The Justinguitar.com Intermediate Method

Keeping in line with making sure that your ear develops, my strongest recommendation is that you try and transcribe some songs yourself!

You should now have all of your E Shape and A Shape Barre grips which means "pretty much most" songs are available for you to try out!

So try! Just pick a tune you like and have a go at it!

Songs to transcribe yourself

All these songs use I V VI IV chord sequences - so have a go with them. See if you can "busk" them in the Key Of G with just the chords G (I), D (V), Em (VI), C (IV):

The Calling - Wherever You Will Go
Jason Mraz - I'm Yours
U2 - With Or Without You
Bob Marley - No Woman, No Cry
Green Day - When I Come Around (+ couple of bars!)
Five For Fighting - Superman (It's Not Easy)
Jack Johnson - Taylor
Mika - Happy Ending
Black Eyed Peas - Where is the Love?
Colbie Caillat - Begin Again

Or maybe these?

Wicked Game - Chris Issak (one A Shape Minor and some opens)

What's Going On - 4 Non Blondes (one A Shape Minor and some opens)


Songs with lessons on justinguitar

 

Traffic In The Sky - Jack Johnson (Best song to work you E and A Shape Major and Minor chords is Jack Johnson, cos it uses fingerstyle and makes you pick all the notes out one at a time and so you have to be playing the chords right!!!)

Under The Bridge - RHCP (kinda complex ways of playing shown in the vid - but you can just use regular barres)

Coffee And TV - Blur (another great tune for working on your barre chords!!)

Blowers Daughter - Damien Rice (few little tricks in it too, but lovely tune!)

Sweet Baby James - James Taylor (uses the good ol' Bmin and lots of open chords - but picking a little tricky!)
