comment How can you get a Country and Western sound with just a guitar and vocal?
Bass note then full chord strumming on the guitar. Boom-chuck sound. I'm not a country singer so all I can say is try to copy.

comment How do I get out of my song writing rut and compose something new and fresh for a change?
And how many songs are out there that use standard chord progressions? Happy Birthday uses the same chord I IV V like the blues, do they sound similar? Sounds like you have to do more research on your own to be convinced.

Use this link and see how creative people have been with progressions. There only so many progressions out there with various melodies. hooktheory.com/theorytab/common-chord-progressions

comment How to find popular and relevant songs from different decades?
Sounds like an interesting project. Like a big data project for songs. I can see some cool analysis on song structures throughout the decades with the information.

comment Using a Capo to transpose from Eb to G
The comment about a capo complimenting things when trying to change key is a problem. Guitarists do it all the time to play the chords they know in the right key.
