In this article, I have given my list of beginner guitar songs which will surely improve your Guitar playing. Just go through it.

Well’ I still remember the time when I first accompanied a song on the 7th day of my Guitar journey. Back then I could barely hold some of the chords. And Moreover, I was totally out of idea what chord progression was? Still, the song that I have chosen to play wasn’t that hard because those songs were all built on beginner guitar chords, which I have mentioned in my earlier Post.(How to Play Basic Guitar Chords – Simple Beginner Guitar Lessons.)

It takes times to master the rhythm and strumming patterns. But the most important thing is timing, the metronome, the beats. Once you understand the timing, you will be capable of playing any song without any ease. Infect you’ll find that many of the popular songs that you know are almost easy to play.

Again, After 2 days of continued practice, I was ready for my first show. Even though it was not good, my friends appreciated it. I know I have to work harder to improve my guitar playing so that it sounds clean and clear, which can touch the emotions. And learning new songs is the best way to improve guitar playing skills.
