    I guess this keeps coming up and is on every beginners mind. I am fairly comfortable with chords and chord changes but I have problems with right hand movement.

    So suggst me some basic song cause I am pretty bored with my down down up down down up schemes.

    I listen to all types of music (with a slant towards english, mostly classic rock).

    Please suggest some (two, three, four, five, x number) songs with basic rhythm and simple chords (maybe barre chords in nut position also).

    and im not onto strumming techniques yet....but me wondering.....if ur just givin the song....its up to the guitarist to decide the strumming pattern right?....ud just have to figure it urself right?

    It depends on both.. Its the way the actual song goes and the way you want to play it. Ie if you are singing, how comfortable you are.. English songs are a million and the fact that the resources are available in Bulk makes it easier to learn strumming patterns and improve and the move on to hindi number whic hwill be your main fous later on..
