And then summer was over. With a heavy heart and a hesitant feeling in your under belly you lift yourself out of bed in the morning to face the challenges that the new school year has lined up for you. Here are a couple of tracks that will help you hold on to that summer holiday feeling. For more inspiration check out our Back to School channel!
We can’t let the daily grind take the better of us, or our zen mindset. So it’s okay to rebel against this. If you play along with Alice Cooper your parents probably think that’s okay too. So scream at the top of your lungs: “School’s out for summer! School’s out forever.”
The song isn’t that hard and the chord progression is full of basic chords like E, Em, C, D, and A. When it comes to the bar chords, you just have to show courage and no fear. Tp help with that check out our blog post about bar chords. In other words: get out your guitar and jam along with ”School’s Out” by Alice Cooper.
YK Osiris – Worth It
Have you left behind a summer sweetheart on the campsite? How much is that love worth? Probably enough to sit down and study at least one song. You never know how your holiday valentine will react if you record your jam and send it by Snapchat.
Not a better song to do this with than YK Osiris’ “Worth It.” Because the question is of course: how much is your summer love worth? There’s only one way to find out. Get out your guitar, prepare for a slightly advanced chord progression and start playing “Worth It” by YK Osiris.
Post Malone – Wow
Do you want to walk into the rehearsal room and make your band members drop their jaws to the floor out of amazement over your new skills? Of course you want to! Show them that you’ve gone through a transformation this summer. And that it’s not only your appearance and your kick-ass tan, it’s also your jam.
You don’t need an advanced song for the wow effect, it just has to be unique and it helps that it’s not thought of as a standard guitar song. So if you don’t mind practicing your vocals and your timing, this is the track for you. Get out your guitar and jam along with ”Wow” by Post Malone. Tip: use Chordify’s capo feature on the second fret.
Charli XCX – Break the Rules
One of the greatest people in history has said that it’s important to believe in yourself, but it’s almost just as important to break the rules sometimes. If Arnold Schwarzenegger says it, then it must be true. When you’ve accomplished almost everything that you’ve set out to do, you must know what you’re talking about.
Now, it’s not like we’re saying, “break all the rules and stop going to school.” Are you crazy? No, our advice is go to school, but the first chance you get, maybe an open mic night where everyone’s trying too hard, whip out your guitar and play this track. If you use the capo feature on the third fret, it’s going to be a little easier. Time to break out and “Break the Rules” with Charli XCX. Happy jamming!
