Stay at Home and Jam - The best songs to learn to play these days

Press release, Groningen March 26, 2020

The coronavirus poses a challenge for people and countries around the world. Let’s not underestimate the power of music in these times. Everywhere around us we can see how music is helping people to cope with physical distancing. Chordify asked their community about the music that comforts them in this situation. Which songs give us hope and emphasize our sense of togetherness? All the suggestions are now in the Stay at Home and Jam Channel; and new suggestions will continue to be added. Premium Features have been made available for free for all these songs, so it becomes even more easy to practice them.           


Music can cheer us up and make us feel connected even when we can’t physically be together. We like to call on everyone to share the songs that encourage you, and therefore maybe others, to stay inside and jam. Like Ghostface Killah would say: “the world may never be the same again.” But as long as we use Champagne Soapernova and Wonderwash, like Liam Gallagher, we’ll keep our good vibrations, so close no matter how far. Don’t worry, be happy and you’ll never walk alone.
