Easy songs to play on guitar – Top 10 easy songs

Top 10 easy songs to play on guitar for beginner.

To be able to play guitar and start learning is a matter of how much drive and patients is within the student. If you hear a curtain guitar playing and wish to one day play that song then that is all you need along with the patients and drive and of course a guitar.

The key to learning guitar and sticking with it long term is to play songs that you genuinely enjoy listening to and won’t get sick of quickly. That’s where your patients kick in. You do have to have patients with guitar and take breaks if you are not getting it. It takes time and most times needs a lot of practice. So picking the right song to play and learn is key to starting out with guitar as students can get bored easily if it is not a song that they are familiar with or a song they do not like as it will be harder for them to memorise all the chords and strumming patterns.

It helps to slow the tempo of the song right down and pick up the same speed when you get your fingers placed correctly and get use to the transfer of the notes and chords.

Some songs I have chosen are great song to start playing chords as most use 4 of the main chords with a few tricky ones that are essential to learn if you want to keep playing other songs, as most songs use more than the 4 chords if you want to play them correctly and get the right sound. I have chosen some songs that are great to learn if you want to play in front of family and friends to sing along to.

This list of songs isn’t in any particular order as every guitar player has their own music they like and a curtain sound that they are trying to achieve so for that reason I have included songs from a wide range of different genres.
