Easy Songs For Stage 8

The Beginner's Course

Really ready to rock out with our Power Chords now!

Now you know your Root 5 and Root 6 Power Chords, you should totally start rocking out and learn some songs that use them.

If you play acoustic guitar you can still rock out in an 'unplugged' kind of way :)

We also made a start on some fingerstyle, so try and find at least one song that uses fingerstyle and put that into your repertoire list, it's a really great skill to get under your fingers (excuse the pun). Vincent is beautiful but WAY beyond a beginner level as I show you in detail the exact way Don played it. But never be scared to simplify a song so you can enjoy playing it.

Everybody Hurts by R.E.M is a very nice one for beginners, as is House Of The Rising Sun (which we looked at back in Stage 6!).
