If you're searching for some easy acoustic guitar songs for beginners, then this guide was written for you. In particular, we're going to talk about why you should learn a few songs when you're just starting guitar, some of the best simple acoustic songs you can start learning, and finally – what you can do to really master these songs. By the time you've finished reading, you should have plenty of song ideas to get you started!

But first, why is is important to learn some songs when you're just starting? You already know there is a lot to learn at first. Scales, chords, technique, music theory – the list goes on. But the real joy and excitement of playing an instrument comes from actually creating music. Also, when someone finds out you are learning guitar, the first thing they will ask if for you to play a song – not a scale.

So with this in mind, here's a quick list of some beginner acoustic songs you may like to try:

Time of your Life (Good Riddance) By Green day.

Losing My Religion by REM.

House of the Rising Sun, by The Animals.

A Horse With No Name by America.

Don't Think Twice, by Bob Dylan.

Wonderwall, by Oasis.

Folsom Prison Blues, by Johnny Cash.

Walk the Line, by Johnny Cash.

Hey There Delilah by Plain White T's.

Take It Easy By The Eagles.

This brief list should give you plenty of ideas for easy beginner songs to play. Although some of these are harder to learn that others, they should all be within reach for most beginner to intermediate players.

So how can you really master these songs? The first step is to be familiar with the song. Next, look up guitar tabs online. A tab will show you all of the correct fingers to play the song, but without any rhythm notation (which is why it pays to already be familiar with the song). If you are stuck with any techniques, or particular parts of the song – then look up YouTube for specific video guides.

To summarize, this guide has shown you why you should learn a few songs if you're just starting out with guitar, a list of many easy-to-play songs, and finally – how you can make sure you really master these songs. Before you realize, you will already have built an extensive repertoire of acoustic songs you can play!
