Ten Easy Acoustic Guitar Classic Rock Songs
Three chord classics? You betcha!
"Wish You Were Here" - Pink Floyd
True story. At one point in my life I was in a Pink Floyd tribute band. So this list couldn't be complete without a selection by this band.
"Wish You Were Here" is the title track on Pink Floyd's 1975 album Wish You Were Here.. Its lyrics encompass Roger Waters' feelings of alienation from other people.
Like most of the album, it refers to former Pink Floyd member Syd Barrett and his breakdown. David Gilmour and Waters collaborated to write the music.
On June 14, 2013, the song was released as an unofficial promotional single on Spotify and when the fans streamed it one million times, the rest of the band's catalog was released, which happened after only four days. Woo-hoo!
The chord pattern repeats throughout the entire song.
