The Creep chords are a great way for beginner guitarists to learn barre chords.

We all need that target song to get barre chords down. For me it was Smells Like Teen Spirit. But maybe for you it’s Creep by Radiohead.

This incredible song is super simple if you can do barre chords, with only four chords in the whole song: G, B, C, and C minor. And these four chords play in a loop, in the same order, throughout the song. That’s why it makes our list of 100 easy guitar songs.
