White Stripes, Hardest Button to Button is super fun, and easy! It was my first actual rock song I learned. Also, the rhythm part of Wild Flower by the Cult. Justin has a great lesson for that.

Found a couple of issues in this lesson page:

  • “Molly’s Lips” link is broken
  • Justin has a lesson for “When I Come Around (Green Day)”. Should be linked instead of “coming soon”

Glycerine by Bush is another great and easy to play power chord song


I recently stumbled across the song Narcotic by Liquido (one of my favourite songs during my childhood). Easy Powerchords and very fun to play (and sing) along to!

Can’t explain by The Who is a great power chord song


Hey Justin, How about a lesson for Green Day “Holliday”

@ScottMellor You need to make requests using the request board here:
There is a search function to see if a song is already there too.

The Passenger by Iggy Pop could be good one for palm muting and also the percussive hit. A fun one to get people going too!

Song 2 by Blur is an absolute cracker to have a go at, also break out the Fuzz for a monster sound :love_you_gesture:t2: :love_you_gesture:t2: :love_you_gesture:t2:

Thank you Justin, great lesson as always! :slight_smile:

“Michael Jackson - Beat It” is a good one as well. The main riff is fun and it uses power chords for the rhythmic parts in the verses.

Yes! I had pieced together some of this song decades ago. I didn’t know what a power chord was back then, so I used full barre chords. I never did figure out the B and C# chords by ear. Learning is so much easier these days with the internet.
