I love most music... but the message in a song has always been something i look for...

To play a nice tune is great
To write lyrics with meaning is great

To put both together is genius (in my eyes)



My favourite protest songs...

Bob Dylan - Times they are a Changing

Bob Dylan - Blowin in the wind

Bob Marley - Redemption song

Bob Marley - One drop

Johnny Cash - Man in Black

Marvin Gaye - Whats going on (the whole album)




Anyway... what your favourite protest songs... I am especially looking for those that are good for a beginner guitarist to learn


Peace

Since i dont know how to post YouTube videos yet i will just have to tell you my favorite all time protest song.And yes i know i am commiting a greivous sin against God and man by not posting the video for this song so i hope you can forgive my wretched self.But my favorite protest song is Credence Clearwater Revivals ''Fortunate Son''.It is by far the greatest and most classic protest song!
