Can any one recommend good songs to learn on the guitar? It cant be too hard but still be a nice song to learn.

When my brother's best friend was learning to play the guitar the very first song he learned was One by Metallica. He said it was the easiest song in the world to learn. He actually started to teach it to me because it was so easy. Personally I think anyone could learn how to play it. Good luck!!

One by metallica? are you kiding me? The easiest songs are songs than on't even require you to pluck, try strumming first, like the song a horse with no name by america, Four strong winds. One by metallica will take begginers more than 2 weeks to play the intro itself! You can play a horse with no name in less than an hour.

As I Am by Dream Theater... It has good rifts and awesome lead.. I prefer this to you so that you can be talented as the guitarist of Dream Theater.. So start learning this song and you'll be great as John Petrucci... You can do it dude... Good luck... Break a leg..

Hello Packy "A nice song to play" will be dependent upon your taste. What I have found consistently while teaching guitar is that the following songs normally evoke a response from learners. What I like about you - originally done by the Romantics has a really simple progression that doesn't change for the entire song E A D A and once you find the rhythm it is fun to play Wild THing - done by just about everybody - I generally play it in E with a E A B progression You really got me - played in 5ths (often referred to as power chords) G and A Knockin on heaven's door - can't remember the progression, but it is easy Anything by the Beatles - try Let It Be C G Am F basically and of course you can't beat crankin it up loud and playing smoke on the water (this is played in fourths - not fifths like every kid in a guitar store play's it) Try plucking the d and G strings together and you will hear that instantly recognisable sound, then make a partial barre ayt the 3rd fret , then the 5th and you will get the basic idea.
