TEN Harder Songs with 3 Chords - Cooler Strumming & Riffs!

As some of you know, one of the main reasons I have had some success on YouTube is because of a couple of 'Play TEN songs with..' style videos.

It's been a while since I've done one, so here's a brand new list of songs with FULL tutorials

This time, each song has more strumming or riff content, we will NOT be doing any strumming just on the beat, but the chords & chord changes should be easy :)

Each song here uses just 3 chords; E major, A major and D major.

For more help playing and changing between these chords, see this video.

This list includes songs with harder strumming or some 'riff' content, as opposed to just super simple strumming.

If you'd like an easier list of songs with more simple strumming, check out this video - Play TEN guitar songs with 3 EASY chords (the easier version!)

See quick links to longer tutorials for each song below the video, all the best with your playing!
