The Easy E Chords

This is one of the easiest chords to learn and play. It was my first chord that I learned on the acoustic guitar. Most people can play the E or E Minor chord right off the bat.

        The E chords are in so many songs you hear everyday on the radio. Its an easy transition chord as well.

Remember This…

 

“I don’t mind stealing bread”
The verse most of us know from the song Hunger Strike by the combined bands of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. 

 

The time was April 16,1991  Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder we’re taking their bands to new highs ,and making this album was a bonus for all the Soundgarden and Pearl Jam fans. They were no strangers to one another both being vocalists in the band Mother Love Bone

During this time the Seattle scene was hot with bands like Soundgarden ,Pearl Jam and Nirvana all making a come up.This album was icing on the cake for A&M records,with hit songs like Hunger Strike and Say Hello 2 Heaven.temple-of-the-dog-4fd30d7435541

Recorded at the London Bridge Studio in Seattle Washington in only 15 days they say. If you’re in your mid 30’s this band will bring you back. Both bands combined for this album was a great move and will go down as one of the bast albums of its time. Sometimes you might catch Cris Cornell singing one of the songs from that album on his Acoustic tour.

Oakie From Muskogee - Merle Haggard
===================================

E
We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee;
                              B7
We don't take our trips on LSD
B7
We don't burn our draft cards down on Main Street;
                                 E
We like livin' right, and bein' free.


E
I'm proud to be an Oakie from Muskogee,
                                          B7
A place where even squares can have a ball ----
B7
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
                                                E
And white lightin's still the biggest thril of all

We don't make a party out of lovin';
We like holdin' hands and pitchin' woo;
We don't let our hair grow long and shaggy,
Like the hippies out in San Francisco do.

And I'm proud to be an Oakie from Muskogee,
A place where even squares can have a ball.
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
And white lightin's still the biggest thril of all.

Leather boots are still in style for mainly footwear;
Beads and roman sandals won't be seen.
Football's still the roughest thing on campus,
And the kids here still respect the college dean.


We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
In Muskogee, Oklahoma, USA.
