4 Chords, 29 Songs On Guitar
My ninth “4 chords” video in which I give an example of some of the many songs that can be played using the same four chords.

All 4 Chords Videos –

The songs I play in order are:

Taylor Swift – Eyes Open
Danna Richards feat. Avia Butler – Forever Love
Idina Menzel – Let It Go
Blink-182 – What’s My Age Again?
The Script – For the First Time
Gavin DeGraw – Best I Ever Had
Tiesto – Red Lights
High School Musical – Stick to the Status Quo
RipTard – How to Write a Catchy Song
Colbie Caillat – Try
Ellie Goulding – Burn
Black Veil Brides – In the End
Coldplay – A Sky Full of Stars
Echosmith – Cool Kids
Fall Out Boy – Alone Together
Diddy – Dirty Money and Skylar Grey – Coming Home
Katy Perry feat. Juicy J – Dark Horse
Matthias – Dreaming
Boys Like Girls feat. Taylor Swift – Two Is Better Than One
John Legend – All of Me
Sam Cooke – Wonderful World
Barry Mann – Who Put the Bomp
Itch feat. Megan Joy – Another Man
Dion – Runaround Sue
Shontelle – Impossible
MAGIC! – Rude
G.R.L. – Ugly Heart
Jason Derulo – Trumpets
Ingrid Michaelson – Girls Chase Boys

*A few notes about the four chords:

1) Although all these songs use the four chords at one point or another, they may not be the four chords throughout the whole song.

2) The actual songs are all normally in different keys – I transposed them all to G, D, Em, and C for the purpose of this video.

3) The songs in this video do not all use the four chords in the same order:
-“Eyes Open” through “What’s My Age Again?” are G, D, Em, C
-“For the First Time” through “Cool Kids” are Em, C, G, D
-“Alone Together” is C, G, D, Em
-“Coming Home” and “Dark Horse” are C, G, Em, D
-“Dreaming” through “Runaround Sue” are G, Em, C, D
-“Impossible” is Em, G, D, C
-“Rude” is C, D, G, Em
-“Ugly Heart” through “Girls Chase Boys” are G, C, Em, D
