Playing the guitar is one skill that everyone should know. All you need is a tuned guitar and a chord sheet. While it may take some time to master the basics, players can transition into playing popular music within a few months of their first lesson. With ChordsWorld, users get access to song lyrics, chord charts and videos demonstrating the proper technique for playing the song on a guitar.
The worst thing a new guitar player can do is try to learn complicated songs. Musical numbers with seven or eight chord changes and an extremely fast tempo are a nightmare for a beginner. Not only will you struggle, but you will lose motivation to learn other songs. Instead, it is best to start with easier songs that you can learn within a few days. Learning one simple song at a time is the best way to stay motivated, learn new chords and improve your strumming technique.
Songs that beginning guitar players may enjoy playing are “Silent Night,” “You Are My Sunshine,” and “Friend of the Dead” by The Grateful Dead. “Silent Night” is one of the best songs for a beginner to gain an understanding for the techniques involved with guitar playing. “Silent Night” does not rely on power or quicker guitar strumming. In fact, it is a simple and beautiful song featuring three guitar chords. It is simple enough for a beginner to learn, but melodic enough to play at a church.
Another great song is “You Are My Sunshine,” because it helps players learn the transition of the G and C guitar chords. The chord changes in this song are faster than some other beginner songs, which means it may take more time to master. However, the fact it does not have too many chords means you only need to master one or two types of chord changes.
