Songs for IF-4
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!)
