Practice Guitar with these Easy Songs
If you play music for no other reason than actually just because you love it, the skills just kinda creep
up on you. - Nuno Bettencourt
To develop your guitar playing skills, start playing songs!
This particular blog is to inspire you to learn guitar. The songs which Im going to mention in this blog
are by no means complete; also they are not arranged in any order. The whole idea of this blog is to
give you the push so that you pick up your guitar and start practicing after reading this blog. These
are some known songs loved by all and the best part is that they are easy to learn and will improve
your guitar playing skills.
Practicing guitar with songs will help you with your chords, rhythm and strumming and picking, in
fact it will help you with most of the basic guitar techniques. At the same time it will make playing
guitar a lot more enjoyable.
So, lets start with the list of songs for beginners
Horse With No Name America
A classic rock song by America from 1972, Horse With No Name is one of the simplest songs to
practice. If you are a beginner and thinking to play songs on your guitar and have fun at the same
time, then try this song. It will actually take you less time to learn this song then it takes to talk about
the song. Just begin with the basic strumming and lyrics.
House of the Rising Sun The Animals
Nice easy song that everyone should know. 'House of the Rising Sun' is a well-known song available
in the public domain which means that we can use it without violating any artist's copyright
protection. Dont rush with the song; go slowly and evenly in the beginning. Dont try to go faster
than you can, while at the same time maintain an even spacing of the chords. All those who thought
fingerpicking guitar was too difficult, think again. Just like everything else it only requires practice,
time and motivation.
For What Its Worth Buffalo Springfield
For What It's Worth by Buffalo Springfield is one of the most familiar songs from the 1960s. It was
from the album Retrospective and was written by Stills, Stephen. It is another simple song to play
and practice guitar. Just like Horse With No Name, For What Its Worth also uses only two chords
E and A.
I Walk The Line - Johnny Cash
I Walk The Line by Johnny Cash is another great song for beginners to learn. I Walk the Line
became the first number one Billboard hit for Cash. You can simplify the song down to just 3 chords -
chord A, chord E and chord D.
Three Little Birds Bob Marley
Three Little Birds is a song by Bob Marley and the Wailers. This song reached the Top 20 in the UK
and is one of Bob Marley's most popular songs. Three Little Birds has been covered by numerous
other artists. This song is for complete beginners and has only three chords - chord A, chord D and
chord E and has a very simple strumming.
Love Me Do The Beatles
Love Me Do is the Beatles' first single and it peaked at No. 17 when released in the UK in 1982. This
is a wonderful song for a guitar learner; it has only three chords, easy changes and easy rhythm.
