If you want to play all those songs the same way but on guitar, the 4 chords are C, G, Am, F. But that's only when playing with that specific tune and tempo, not all these songs were written with these 4 chords

Ervin Fidelis (4 days ago)
He played the same 4 chords but most of the song didnt go well. He is playing the same 4 chords but he is singing the songs melody thats why it sounds as if the 4 chords can play any song. Their point is invalid.

Just started randomly humming Dancing in the Storm, came to the line "I will not give in..." and it turned into The Heart is a Muscle..... when I tried to go back, I finished up with Live It Up, which was when I thought of this song, and guess what? They all fit :D

dbspaceoditty (10 days ago)
they need to remake jay and silent bob strikes back but have it be jack black going after a guy who made a movie about tenatious D.
Lucas Mouraux (10 days ago)
They make this look so easy since it’s “only 4 chords” but I think we should really appreciate what they’ve done and realize how hard this still is ! Great job axis!

The intervals are correct (I V vi VI) but many of the keys are off. Still an excellent sketch though.

I wonder if any songs from Michael Jackson or Prince falls in this? They said once that today's pop songs really suck. Not like in the 70s and 80s.

Youtube coming at this video with 50 copyright strikes...
Richard Smith (1 day ago)
+Aaron Williams I wish that was true, but it isn't. Unless you are very influential youtuber, your channel will just be deleted when it happens 3 times, whether you did anything wrong or not. It's fucked right now man.
Aaron Williams (1 day ago)
+Richard Smith ok, while you are right, its not youtube itself, its the companies making the claims, my initial statement still stands. the copyright can only stick when more than 12 seconds of the song has been played. otherwise the copyright strike is dead in the water and gets dropped. and considering how old the video is, they probably already did try to copy right strike it, and when it failed, the company lost the right to attempt to strike it again.
Richard Smith (1 day ago)
+Aaron Williams Youtube doesn't do shit. The companies with the copyright makes the claim, and youtube just takes their word for it.
Aaron Williams (1 day ago)
youtube could only copyright strike if they played more that 12 seconds of any song, thats why they change so often
bman342a (2 days ago)
+Richard Smith you might be right, we don't know if the poster received strikes until he informs us (though given that the video has been up for years, a safe bet is that he did not). Companies certainly have the right to maintain their own content standards. But under legal standards of fair-use this is would qualify.
