Easy Songs To Learn The Guitar Online

What are some easy songs to learn the guitar online? There are quite a few that I can point out. It appears very obvious that it is needed for you to start learning guitar with easy songs but sometimes we like a song so much that we want to start to play it right away, it is not the common scenario, but it happens.

That being said, the best thing you have to do is to start with easy songs, popular songs. If you analize it, a reason why these songs are popular most of the time is due to the fact they are easy. If you begin with easy songs, you will not feel frustrated and you will be more comfortable with your Guitar.

A song that I like a lot and was one of the first songs I learned is KNOCKIN' ON HEAVEN'S DOOR, by Bob Dylan. This song is pretty easy, you only have to know four chords: G, D, C and A minor or Am (most commonly known). What can be hard here is to change from one chord to the next, meaning that at first, you will not be changing from G to D for example very fast, but with a little practice you will dominate this song very likely in less than a week.

KNOCKIN' ON HEAVEN'S DOOR is a good song to practice the rhythm, the movement of your right hand (if you’re not left handed of course).

Another song that is very easy to master and fun to play is Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver, It actually has the same chords than the other song we were talking about, it only changes one chord. Instead of Am you will have to play Em. The difficulty level is really the same; the only significant difference is that this song is a little bit faster than Bob Dylan’s song.

Now, if you are like me and like punk rock songs, The Ramones have many songs that are very easy to play, like Blitzkrieg Bop, one of my favorites. The truth is for this type of songs, you don’t even have to learn all the chords, you just need to play the Power Chord.

What is the Power Chord? Well, it is a chord that you can play in every fret getting a different note. For example, to get the G note, you place your index finger on the sixth string on the third fret, your ring finger on the fifth string on the fifth fret and your pinky finger in the fourth string on the fifth fret, below your ring finger.

Once you learn the Power Chord, you can learn a lot of punk rock songs from bands such as Green Day, The Ramones, Blink 182, The Offspring… You get the Idea.

To practice the Chords, Here is a small list of songs that you can play:

1. Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver
2. Free Falling by Tom Petty
3. Yellow by Coldplay
4. Come On Get Higher by Matt Nathanson
5. Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynard
6. Clocks by Coldplay
7. Teardrops On My Guitar by Taylor Swift
8. Lost by Coldplay.
9. Realize by Colbie Caillat
10. You’re Beautiful by James Blunt

Remember, the secret to learn guitar is practice, so practice, practice and then practice some more. Learn one song first, and then move on to the next one. Good luck and I’ll see you on stage.
