Most intimidating intro song
“But I do find this an issue.”By ‘this’ he means the collective chants started by students during the Intro when hearing the number ‘Seven Nation Army’, of which the famous guitar riff is eagerly used in various gatherings (including football stadiums) to chant ‘All Germans are gay’ or variations on it.
Trietsch, who is gay himself, is aware that this happens more often and that there are usually no angry “homophobic intentions” to it.
Unfortunately there are a lot of places where you’ll see lists of easy songs that don’t give you much variety.
In fact, a beginner guitar song is often dreadfully boring to play, which doesn’t do much for inspiration or for pushing an aspiring guitarist to continue learning. If you focus on just the chord progressions for each song, what you play on the guitar can become as simple or as difficult as you want. This means that most of the songs you’re used to hearing are probably much easier than they sound. So we’ve come up with a list of beginner guitar songs that are easy but interesting and fun to play.
Here’s the process we’re using to set these songs up for you:1. Try not to be overwhelmed by what you hear when you listen to the track.
Focus on only the chord progression, as loosely determined by the bass line (we’ll show you the chord progression—or at least the chords you need to know). Instead, simply recognize that all you need to worry about is the chord progression.
Think about those chords, memorize them and listen for the changes in the song.
My encouragement to you is to use these songs to stoke your interest in the guitar.
Find stuff you like and play it as a way to motivate yourself to continue learning and becoming a better player.
