Best Songs for Beginners to Learn on Guitar (Fingerstyle)

The Top Ten

1 Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day Cover Art

It is a great song, so great to learn and is very easy - Legend1221

If I had to play it then I'd play with a pick rather than fingers (fingerpicking). Cause Billie used some rough picking in the chorus part. - zxm

The intro isn't too bad - Legend1221

Hmmm... not sure about this one. The chord changes are quite quick for a beginner. I don't think beginners would find it easy. - BrianScott01

8 Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton Cover Art
9 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica Nothing Else Matters - Metallica Cover Art

James Hetfield was on the phone and accidentally played the opening riffs. Quite easy. And good for fingerstyle. - zxm

10 Blackbird - The Beatles Blackbird - The Beatles Cover Art

Quite simple, but still very fun to play. Great song for learning how to use all the fingers while moving the fingers on the right hand rather quickly. - KurtCocain
