Learned To Play Three Songs By The Ramones


I’ll admit it.  I haven’t made enough time for music lately.  When I was younger, you couldn’t separate me from my guitar.  I loved playing music.  I used to think that it would someday become my life.  Five years ago when I first started working, I spent my first paycheck on the guitar you’ll see later in the following videos.

One band that I’ve always admired but never bothered to learn how to play is the Ramones.  I’m not sure why I never played their songs before.  Whenever anyone mentions three chord songs, a Ramones reference is not far.  I thought it would be fun to pick a few to learn in a day.  So, I picked three that I really like (two that are popular, one that’s my favorite) and decided to learn them:

  • 1) “Blitzkrieg Bop” - It’s such a famous song, but it’s just a good song.
  • 2) “Sheena Is A Punk Rocker” - This is my very favorite Ramones song.

  • 3) “I Wanna Be Sedated”

As you can see from the videos, these songs are not difficult to play, but they’re fun.  They are awesome in their simplicity.

PS.  Yes, I know I did not play them perfectly.
