Sometimes you want to play some fun, uptempo guitar songs that make you feel good inside, songs you can strum and sing along with in a good solid tempo that puts a smile on people faces.
The tempo of such a song will usually be somewhere between 100 and 140 bpm (beats per minute).
I selected some of the best upbeat songs with accompanying guitar lessons, chords and tabs.
Have a great time!
