Good songs to start on guitar with?
« on: March 21, 2005, 05:16:00 PM »

I've had a pretty decent acoustic guitar since late December, and I've been learning a little bit on it since then. I finally had my first actual lesson last Tuesday -- does anyone know of any songs [especially The Beatles, of course. ^^;] that'll be good for a newbie guitarist to try? >_> <_< >_>

For rhythm guitar playing, I choose "And I Love Her"...then learn George's lead after that. It's quite easy.

Let It Be, Hey Jude, and Yellow Submarine are all pretty easy.

day tripper is a fun one..both lead and rythm

practice chords, like switching between them, and practice scales, then you'll be able to play any beatles song

Watch out what you say about Nirvana around Bruno, DeadMan, or your name will have new meaning.

My suggestion will be my 500TH POST FOLKS! Just call me Max. Anyways, depending on how your fingers are feeling (takes awhile to toughen 'em up) 'I'll Be Back' isn't too tough and it sounds so cool.

Even the solo? One of my students is learning guitar, and I told him to learn the intro to Revolution. I figured that'd be easy enough.
