Best Songs for Beginners to Learn on Guitar (Fingerstyle)

The Top Ten

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

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

2 Here Comes the Sun - The Beatles
3 Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers
4 Babe I'm Gonna Leave You - Led Zeppelin
5 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
6 Angie - The Rolling Stones
7 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

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
9 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

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

10 Blackbird - The Beatles

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

12 Something from Nothing - Foo Fighters
13 Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton
14 Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes
