3 Great Songs For Beginner Guitar Players

Learning to play the guitar can be really exciting. Once you’ve mastered those first few chords, you will be itching to strum away and play some of your favourite songs. 

Some of the music you enjoy listening to may be difficult to master as a beginner, as long as you keep practising you’ll be able to play them in no time. However, for the time being some of the old trusty classics may be more beginner-friendly. 

The easiest song for beginners to play are ones that have simple, repetitive chord progressions. This allows you to get a feel for the speed and rhythm while getting to grips with changing chords. 

Van Morrison is a household name and almost everyone has heard the song ‘Brown Eyed Girl.’ This is a really great song for beginners to play and has only four chords: G, C, D and Em.

These are all really easy chords to master and the song is such a classic you can even work on singing along to the rhythm as you play!

If you want something a little more fast-paced and fun, ‘Bad Moon Rising’ by Creedence Clearwater Revival is another well-known tune that uses only three chords this time: D, A and G. This is a fun, upbeat song that can help you work on playing at a faster pace. 

If you're looking for something a little more modern to serenade with, ‘All Of Me’ by John Legend is a simple, easy pop song to start with. This song is performed on the piano, but the chords are easily translated over to guitar and you'll only need three of them: Em, C and G!

You will find that a lot of songs have relatively easy chord progressions, learning different strumming patterns can help you to really grasp the individual sound of a song and even make it your own. Trying different guitars, such as classical guitars and electric guitars, can help you develop different skills too!
