Easy Songs For Stage 2

The Beginner's Course

Now we're looking at songs that use the minor chords too!

As you learn more chords, you should learn more and more songs that use the new chords and consolidate the ones you know.

Playing songs is a load more fun than just practicing chord changes (although that can be VERY helpful!) so try to find a few songs from each stage that you really enjoy and practice them as much as possible!

Stage 2 introduced the three minor chords; Am, Em and Dm - so try and find some songs that use a few of these at least, although some of the songs below are still using just A, D and E (major) chords but are a little harder.

Most important is to find songs that you really love playing, and I hope between my two songbooks and the videos I've done so far you can find at least a few from each stage!

Your fingers are probably still hurting - so remember to practice a little and often and stop if the tips get very sore, and if you overdo it, take a few days (or a week) off to let them heal!
