Some of these songs are as easy as two-chord songs which are a great starting point for beginner guitar players that includes classic rock, country, and pop songs.

Furthermore, a youtube link is also included that features some tutorials on these songs. Grab your guitars, and let’s strum right to it.

Bob Dylan – Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door

Four chords: G-D-Am then G-D-C

This gospel-folk song originally appearing on a soundtrack dedicated to Sam Peckinpah in 1973 is one of Dylan’s most popular songs. This song is timeless and a masterpiece and is very easy to learn.

Lil Nas X & Billy Ray Cyrus – Old Town Road

Four chords: A, C, G and F

One of the biggest hits from 2019, this song became a worldwide phenomenon on the internet from hip hop singer Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus.

We’ve also seen several liver performances of Billy Ray strumming to these easy open chords: A, C, G, and F.

The Beatles – Twist And Shout

Three Chords: D, G, and A

Perhaps what makes Twist And Shout so great for beginners is that every part is achievable for even the novice of guitar players. It is just D, G, A for the whole songs except for the breakdown, where you just play A. Hard? More like a piece of cake!

Taylor Swift – Wildest Dreams

Five Chords: C, Em, D, G, and Am

In a solo performance of Taylor Swift back in 2015, the singer-songwriter showed that sometimes all you need is a guitar and a good song to make performance work. The heart of the song is C, Em and D, and G, D, Am, and C in the choruses that sums five chords in all. With the song’s gentle tempo, this would be perfect for a beginner guitarist.

Practice these at home and you’ll whip out some tunes during parties and gathering in no time! /bmjo
