Acoustic Guitar Songs

When starting out with the guitar, there is nothing more frustrating than searching around the internet looking for a few acoustic guitar songs to play, but finding out that they are all just that bit too hard. I was there myself. That’s why I have compiled this short list of super easy, pretty easy and not so easy acoustic guitar songs for you to learn.

These are the songs that I frequently teach my private students. They are (mostly) well loved and can be played with just a few chords and a capo for the most part. Where there is a link you will find the video lesson that I have created. If there is no lesson yet, hold tight, they take a little while to create, but they will be there shortly. You can join the mailing if you want to be updated about new video lessons for the ‘Acoustic Guitar Songs’ series (and get a free eBook) by clicking here.
