heya. welcome.

easy songs??? depends on the genre really.

for punk music the ramones songs are often quite simple.

for rock some ac/dc songs like highway to hell are relatively simple and will expand your chord knowledge.

a power chord is a chord using only the first and fifth notes of the triad - no third.

simply, a C major chord would have the 1st 3rd and 5th notes - C E G.

a power chord has only the 1st and 5th so - C and G


above is a simple C power chord played on the E string.

who's dr phill lol?

Trying to think along your genre... not really my alley. May be able to help better if you supply us with more types of bands that you like. But...

Hurt by Nine Inch Nails is easy (check johnny cash version the guitar is more pronounced)
STP - Creep is also basic and fun.

What's a church effect?

Humbuckers would be good though.

When I saw church effect the first thing I thought of was reverb. Maybe that's it?

I think it's just the echo inside the church. (reverb, what Crunch said) You can have things like Hall, Stage, Room, Church, and so on.

yeh i think you are right Jazz, sounds the most logical also has hall and room decay on one of my amps presets which sounds like maybe that.

Yes "church effect" is come from reverb. Its main factor is predelay in reverb. Like small room have predelay like 1 and church effect is like 11 ms.

Also sound shape in reverb affects a little, when small room have square, church effect usually used as curved. also decay is more bigger in church reverb effect than small room. I dun remember, but i think decay is about 0.70 seconds in small room and 3.0 seconds in church like effect.

@Nightmare:- Angus Young's 'sound' is quite simple to achieve. He use's SG's which are humbucking guitars anyway, Turns his volume up to about one notch below distortion and plays it clean, no effects at all.
Of cause, that will only get you the sound. If you want to play like him you'll need to master the major and minor pentatonic scale and develop a very wide, slow vibrato reminiscent of the late Paul Kossoff of Free.
Best of luck, I've been trying to 'nail' that vibrato for years!
