If you are looking for good guitar chords for a love song then I would certainly suggest using minor chords somewhere in the progression because minor chords tend to set the correct tone, however it isn’t completely necessary.
Let’s take look at 2 very popular love songs and see why. Bryan Adams has written 2 hit songs, ‘Heaven’ and ‘Everything I do’. Now if you were to ask me, I would say that both these songs would have strong minor chords, but surprisingly only one of them does, and the thing is that the song I would have put money on being mainly minor chords, ‘Everything I do’ actually only has 1 minor chord.
‘Everything I Do’ has only 4 chords – A, D, G and Em so it’s the melody of the vocals and lyric that provides the strong love song element to the piece. It’s a great song to play just on acoustic guitar because of the simplicity of the song but you can also play it on electric guitar and it will still sound quite good.
‘Heaven’ again has very a very strong vocal arrangement with emotional lyrics and is more of a rock ballad than ‘Everything I do.’ The guitar chord sequence has 2 minor chords and are as follows – Am, Dm, C, F, G. Again it’s a nice song to play just on acoustic guitar but the chorus does lend itself to power chords so if you want to play it you may need to change the arrangement slightly.
If you are trying to write your own love song then I suggest firstly using chords that have already been laid down for you and then adapting the chord sequence to fit your song. So think about a classic love song that you like or why not try using the chords the chords from either of the two songs we have looked at in this article? Try not to use too many cliches in your lyrics as you’ll find that your song is less appealing, so do your best to come up with some original lines.
