Four Chord Pop Music

Four Chord Pop Music

Let me tell ya, Sonny, when I was a boy, we only needed three chords for all our rock and roll songs. We could play every song with those same three chords.  But that’s not good enough for you.  You use got to use the same four cords for everything. Pfft.

If you want to be a really well rounded musician you’ll you need to add the five notes from Pachelbel’s Cannon. Combine them with the four chords and you’ll be able to play everything.

  1. I think the Pop music is the most relatable genre in the world in these days.

  2. Three chords? Luxury. When America penned ‘Horse with no name’ they could only afford 2 chords, Em and Am. And they originally wrote ‘Horse with no mane’, but they couldn’t afford to get the typo corrected.

  3. That song always annoyed the hell out of me. I always want to shout: “You’re in the desert, with nothing else to do, and it’s your horse, so just name the damn thing!
