Justin Bieber. What a crazy phenomenon he has become. I have to say, I am always skeptical of these teen sensations that get launched to stardom. Usually, their fame is not fueled by talent.

But I have to hand it to Justin Bieber. I'm not a huge Bieber fan, by any means. But I've listened to his music and I've listened to him on live recordings, and the kid's got talent.

There's a chord progression that has been used FOREVER and it never fails: G-Em-C-D

Songs that use this chord progression include:

"Stand By Me" - Ben E. King
"This Magic Moment" - The Drifters
"Duke Of Earl" - Gene Chandler
"Earth Angel" - The Penguins
"Teenager In Love" - The Hit Crew
"Beautiful Girls" - Sean Kingston
"Canon in D" - Pachelbel


"Baby" - Justin Bieber

Millions of dollars and girls have been won through these four simple chords. So I decided to do my own acoustic version of Justin Bieber's "Baby". Here it is, hope you enjoy it:
