6 Easy Songs For Guitar Beginners

If you sat down and thought about it, you could probably come up with a massive list of easy songs for guitar beginners. Seriously... it could go on and on.

This list that I've come up with contains songs that I've personally played and realized that most beginners would have a fun time tackling.

1. "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" by Green Day

Green Day are the masters of power chords and just like any other of their songs, this one is jam-packed with them. There's only a couple progressions to the entire song and a few neat lead riffs that should give any beginner a tiny ego boost when completed.

2. "Radio" by Alkaline Trio

Personally, I just love this song and Alkaline Trio is known for creating easy songs for guitar beginners since there's only one guitarist in the band.

I know that there are quite a few three person music groups, but it seems that they chose to take the Blink 182 route as opposed to like System of A Down (not counting the singer).

3. "Adam's Song" by Blink 182

Right there I just mentioned Blink 182, and here they are in the next song. "Adam's Song" is a good way to dive into Blink 182 since this one's a bit slower and helps you to realize their system of Intro/Verse/Chorus/Intro/Verse/Chorus/Bridge/Chorus.

4. "Wonderwall" by Oasis

If you're alive...

people want to hear this freaking song. Seriously, don't show your sorry face at a campfire unless you know this song, otherwise someone is going to call you out and accuse you of not knowing anything.

Well, let's hope that your friends are nicer than mine. Either way, this is another easy song for guitar beginners.

5. "Free Fallin'" by Tom Petty

Tom Petty makes classics that just about anyone can play and "Free Fallin'" is one of them. If you enjoy this one, take a stab at "Mary Jane's Last Dance" too.

When I was in a classic rock band, all we ever got were requests for us to play Tom Petty. Again... pretty popular.

6. "Wild Thing" by The Troggs

This one is seriously easy and any bar that's had the drinks flowing for a least a couple hours is going to love it. Add this one to your line-up and watch those drunks go nuts...

...in a good way.

It's pretty interesting how some of the more easy songs for guitar beginners are some of the more popular ones. Try out a few of these and get the attention of your friends and family.
