Hey yaaaa…. guys,

Been wanting to learn a four chord song that all the young girls will know?

I got you covered baby.

Just check out this lesson posted by YourGuitarSage for the “Hey ya” song by Outcast.

The song uses 4 chords that everyone should no… no make that 5 (one chord appears in 2 flavors):

G, C, D, E (becomes Em during the chorus)

It’s a pretty simple little tune that you can definitely sing along to if you’ve got the voice. Heck, sing it even if you don’t. What else are you gonna do to liven up those 4 chords, right?

Anyway, check out the lesson below and then hit me up with your thoughts in the comments.
