What are some good songs to learn guitar fast? There are some that I can recommend. It seems 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 begin 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 won’t feel frustrated and you will be more comfortable with your Guitar.

A song that I like very much 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 notes: G, D, C and A minor or Am (most commonly known). What can be hard here is to change from one chord to another, meaning that at first, you will not be going from G to D for example very quickly, but with a little practice you will dominate this song very likely in less than seven days.
KNOCKIN’ ON HEAVEN’S DOOR is a great 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 play and fun to play is Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver, It actually plays the same chords than the other song we were talking about, it only changes one chord. Instead of Am you will need 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 a lot of songs that are very easy to play, like Blitzkrieg Bop, one of my favorites. In fact for this type of songs, you do not even have to know all the chords, you just have to play the Power Chord.
What is the Power Chord? Well, it is a chord that you can do in every fret getting a different note. For example, to get the G note, you put 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 master 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 good list of songs that you can learn:
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 Caillat10. You’re Beautiful by James Blunt
Remember, the key to play 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.
