Easy Songs For Stage 3

The Beginner's Course

More easy songs for you :) As you learn more chords you will be able to play more and more songs - and learning songs is the key to making it all make musical sense, without songs you'll never really feel like you are playing!

We've got a couple more chords now (G and C) but the amount of songs we can play now by adding these in a a LOT!

I usually recommend Hey Joe as being the best starter for this stage as it uses all the major chords over and over and is not fast or got any really tricky bits (unless you try the riff at the end) and will help you master your C and G chords, and nearly everyone loves Hendrix!

Remember to stick playing the songs you've been working on already as well - don't let them go by the way... I recommends having one practice session a week where you just play all your songs.

It's a great idea to keep a record of your "Repertoire", there are tick boxes to help you in the index pages of the Songbooks, showing which you've started, learned and performed!

You should be trying to add in some basic strumming patterns now if you can, but remember not to get down on yourself if you can't play all the songs with the strumming patterns and riffs I show you in the video lessons - I want to give you cool ideas to play around with as you progress as well and mastering the basics!

Hope you doing great - by this stage your fingers should be hurting a little less and the whole thing starts be more fun and less pain from now on (for most people anyhow).
