look at my small list of bands on my profile for sort of thing I like...
And is the most recognisable part.
Can you do barre chords? Or do you want to stick to 1st position?
Do you prefer a fast rhythm, slow or steady mediun pace? Are you singing too? What's your key? What's your range? Do you have a capo?
Barre chords gives you so many more options, and signing makes songs that just use basic chords seem much more fun
Rhythm's not an issue. Preferably singing too. Do not have a capo, standard tuning etc.
have easy/enjoyable songs or guitar
one of the first songs I learnt (albeit just the intro) but it's lovely and simple to play.
only 4 fairly simple chords and nothing fancy apart from one small slide.
Red Gas Circle, Awful Bliss, As We Go Up We Go Down, Drinkers Peace, 14 Cheerleader Coldfront, Bright Paper Werewolves etc.
I'd say the best ones though are Gleemer and The Tumblers, they're the most interesting guitar parts if you're not going to sing along, but they're still easy enough.
and can play most gbv songs in my own head. they have quite a good tabs site iirc
nice signature, I didn't realise we got them on this website SILLY ME LOL
The chord progression is G-C-D. Kimya Dawson uses that progression a lot, too, and her songs are also wicked simple, as is to be expected with anti-folk bands.
So, yeah. Total blast! Also, a fair few of the songs on In The Aeroplane Over The Sea are just a few chords, and they're great for getting used to weird rhythm.
