3 Easy Guitar Songs to Learn On the Guitar

Easy Guitar Song 1:
Knocking On Heaven's Door was written by Bob Dylan and was more recently popularized by non other than Guns N’ Roses. From version to version there are slight variations on the way the song is played but the simplest and most standard chord structure is G, D, Am just cycled over and over again. In some versions the Am is followed every other time with a C. It's not only an easy song to play on the guitar, it's one of my all time favorites.

Easy Guitar Song 2:
Wild Thing is of course one of the most famous standards of all time and while it's an oldie, it's certainly a goodie. It also happens to be one of every guitar player's firsts. If you don't know this song then you should really just stop what ever you are doing and learn it now. It is one of those songs that every band inevitably jams for hours on end. It's also one of those songs that by learning, you have inadvertently learned 10 other classic easy guitar songs. You'll see what I mean. The Chords are essentially A, D, E, D over and over again.

Easy Guitar Song 3:
Finally, House of the Rising Sun is an easy guitar song that everyone should know. The original is a folk song whose author has long been forgotten. And while the animals’ version is the one that most people are familiar with, I strongly suggest you find a copy of the traditional lyrics. It is a beautiful and haunting song. The Chords are Am, C, D, F, Am, E, Am. Just repeat over and over again and that's it.
