Some of the easiest songs for beginners to learn on guitar include "Horse With No Name" by America and "Knockin’ on Heaven's Door" by Bob Dylan. Other easy songs include "Fire" by Bruce Springsteen and "Hand in My Pocket" by Alanis Morissette.
New guitar players may also consider learning how to play "Runaway Train" by Soul Asylum and "Need You Now" by Lady Antebellum. These songs are easy to learn because they only use a few common chords in their composition. Players move their fingers minimally to a relatively even tune in many of these songs to learn how to play them.
