    Thank you so much to everyone, you guys are always the best! Jim, yes, I do know about your 3 chord club (a fantastic resource!), I just needed a way to narrow it down so I wanted to see what peoples favorite "go tos" are, if you know what I mean!

    Sloop John B has 4 chords, but it's one of those songs that can be played easy or hard, so it's a good one if more advanced players are getting bored, they're free to add more to the song then.

    Three Little Birds, 1st song I ever learned. People still love to hear it.
    "Those who bring sunshine and laughter to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves".

    Music washes from the soul, the dust of everyday living.
