Axis of Awesome is doing its best to show us how we can be rock stars. Jordan, Benny, and Lee have made this video at least twice to drive home the point that there are only four chords in all of rock music. They adroitly show us how regular people like me and you have become rich and famous using only four chords.
If you learn these four chords, you will be able to cover nearly every pop song ever written. However, covering a song will not make you all that rich and famous. The real money is made by making a melody to go with this chord progression. Here are the chords you need to learn so you can be famous too:
Since it takes more than chords to be really famous in pop music, here is a melody to get you started. It is a cover of the Westminster Clock Tower in London which has inspired great musicians from Paul McCartney to Kelly Clarkson.
After you have mastered these four chords you can play over 40 songs. See how the Axis of Awesome do it.
