If you are a beginner guitar player or you just need some inspiration for easy guitar songs you’ve come to the right place.
I’ve put together a list of 30 easy guitar songs that are great to strum along with and a lot of fun to play.
Make sure you practice the chords and switching between chords for each song thoroughly. It will benefit your playing.
I’ve put a Youtube link on each song title and two chord links next to it. The “Chords” link will take you to the chords and lyrics for the song and the “More Chords” link will show you the official transcribed chords if you want to learn more songs of the artist concerned.
Some of the songs in the list below are played with a Capo.
The capo is commonly used to raise the pitch and change the key of a song while still using the same open chord fingerings, but a capo makes it also possible to play a different set of chords for a song which makes the song easier to play while still remaining in the original key of the song. This is a common thing in guitar playing and guitar players do it all the time, not just beginners.
Professional singer songwriters use the capo frequently so they can sing in a particular key but still use the beautiful sounds and possibilities of open chord fingerings.
Life is too short not to use a capo.
That being said you still want to improve your guitar playing once you can play these songs because the more you improve, the better it gets! The world of guitar playing is full of infinite discoveries that will make your life more awesome each time you get to the next level.
Enjoy the songs!
