Songs For Module 2

I know it has been said before here, but can I also ask that the songs listed in the lesson be made available on the beginners app please. The app really does help as you can slow down the backing track until you get it right.

I have the beginners song book vol 1 to help with the chords, but not having a backing track limits the learning experience.

Thanks for listening.

Hello @Nathan1234 and welcome to the community.

@TonyHS

There are many publishing and copyright reasons why Justin cannot have all songs in the App, much as he might wish to match exactly the many parts of the website and song lists.

Ah OK, I didn’t think of that. Thank you.

I just wrote a mini review of the Chord ai app for iOS, which you might find helpful.

@Tbushell thank you for that, I see it is available for android as well, so I will try that out.

Hi Rien, @RienZ1936
Welcome here and I wish you a lot of fun, :sunglasses:
Below I put a link where you can vote for your favorite songs, with only 79 votes I’m afraid you might have to drop the word Poison very subtly between your sentences in the community(without it looking psychotic :laughing: :wink:)
Greetings,Rogier

You recommend Three Little Birds as a great song to practice after Module 2 but I can’t seem to find in on the Justin Guitar App. What am I missing?

@AndyBringhurst looks like it may have dropped from the app. There were some, I believe(?), copyright issues recently which led to some songs disappearing from the app. Looks like that was one of them.

A shame as I used it a lot when I started. Plenty of other songs with A, D and E in there. You can filter by chords in the search function in the app if you didn’t know.

Good luck and enjoy!

Hey do you guys have a song that has quite a good amount of D chord in it? Thats the hardest chord for me so far especially the changes from E to D, so I would like to practice this the most atm :smiley: Most of the songs i found so far are mainly A chord and barely any D chord in it. Maybe you guys know a particular song. Thanks!

Michael, have you tried using the filters on the JG website Songs page? I tried this which may provide some suitable songs: https://www.justinguitar.com/songs?f=justinguitarchords%2Cd%2Ce%2Cbeginner_grade_1%2Ca

Hello you said to leave a comment if you’re not catering to my musical tastes so here I am. I like Kpop. At the moment specifically any song by Xdinary Heroes who are an actual band and not just singing and dancing, but actually any Kpop would do. I doubt you’ll add music like this but I figured it was worth a shot.

I cannot find it on the app either, I used the video tutorial on the website. It’s pretty helpful and have found that by writing down the chord progression it makes it much easier to play through. Almost singing it as well which I am not sure is a good thing. lol.

Hi Katarzyna @kaslovakr - did you see this? It looks like Justin got your request!

Hound Dog is C, F, G… not A, D and E.

I mean… I assume the first thing beginners will do is go to YT or Spotify and listen and then not know why it doesn’t sound right?

Amazing Grace is an excellent song for beginners…maybe you left it out because it’s spiritual, but it’s great to start out with just A, D and E but it’s a 3/3…just a heads up.

So I’m trying to go back and play some of the these songs. In the previous module I was playing the chord 4 times a measure. I’m doing this here and following the strumming pattern. I guess I have a question when playing a measure with multiple chords. For example I’m playing Another saturday with Sam Cooke. The strumming pattern is D D U UD
Ok no problem but when I get to the measure with E,D,A on one measure i’m not sure how to play it? Down on E then DU on D and then UD on A?

Hi @ihavenoname

There is always a bit of trial and error when working out strumming on songs.

I just had a quick go at the Sam Cooke song off the top of my head and I think it might be half a bar of E, half a bar of D and then the A is a new bar*

I played old faithful up until that split bar where I changed it to DDU DDU (E-chord D DU, D-chord D DU, A-chord back to old faithful).

In saying all that, that was just off one listen to refamilarise myself with the song which I haven’t listened to for a while.

Great song, I might add this one to my repertoire

*edit. Having listened again, I am now playing it with a rhythm push to A but that is far beyond this module and not necessary.
