Need a little help with these shapes? No problem, I shall give you the chord charts:





"listen to the tracks to get a feel for the timing and rhythm"

Now you know the chords, you probably want to know the songs? Great, the list below has the 50 songs you can now play! How cool is that?!?! I recommend you listen to the tracks on Spotify, YouTube, Prime, iTunes, to get a feel for the timing and rhythm.
