Group Guitar Classes

If you’re new to private or group guitar classes, you are going to want to start learning to play easy songs. There are some songs that are easier than others. As a general rule, this is because they have fewer chords or are very repetitive in nature.

If playing a guitar interests you, here are five of the easiest songs for beginning guitarists (in no particular order):

  1. “Wake Me Up When September Ends” by Green Day

There are various versions of this song, and one of the simplest utilizes just four chords. A capo can be used to help match the original version of the song. For the five-chord version that calls for D, Em and C, you may want to consider switching those chords with Dsus4, Em7 and Cadd9. The reason behind this is simple: the chord changes are much easier. This means that it will be easier for beginning players to tackle the song. The fourth chord that will be used is G.

  1. “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” by Guns N’ Roses/Bob Dylan

This is another four-chord song, which features the four chords of G, C, D and Am7. Originally released by Bob Dylan and later released by Guns N’ Roses, Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door is a timeless tune that has been covered by hundreds of people. It has easy, beginner chords and strumming that isn’t too over the top for newbies. If you want to play Dylan’s version of the song, you will need standard tuning. However, for the version by Guns N’ Roses, you’ll want to tune down a 1/2 step. Overall, you’ll be playing G-D-Am7-Am7 and G-D-C-C on repeat.

  1. “Today” by The Smashing Pumpkins

This particular song helps learning guitarists become accustomed to certain techniques: barre chords and two-string melodies. A two-string melody is when you need to hold your fingers over two separate strings simultaneously. Barre chords are implemented when you play a chord with the same fingering. The five chords that you’ll use to play this rock song are G, F, Eb, Bg, Ab and C. This song may be a bit trickier to get the hang of at first, but it doesn’t take too long. You can always use power chords instead of barre chords until you are able to master the barre chords.

  1. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana

This is probably one of the most influential songs ever. Thankfully, it is also one of the easiest to play on the guitar. Smells Like Teen Spirit will help beginning guitarists learn to play the most basic of power chords, two-string melodies and strumming patterns. The five power chords that this song utilizes are Ab5, Bb5, Db5, E5 and F5.

  1. “Wonderwall” by Oasis

This is the guitar song to learn from the 1990s. It features chords that basically revolve around the G Major chord. In other words, your last two fingers will hardly ever need to leave the third fret. It can be played with a capo at the third fret, but this is optional. The chords used to play Wonderwall are G, D, Em, A and C, which can be translated to easier chords: G5, Dsus4, Em7, A7sus4 and Cadd9. The strumming (16th pattern) may prove to be a bit difficult at first, but it won’t take no time to master it with practice during group guitar lessons. If nothing else, start the song in 8th strumming and work your way up.
