Hmm. Does anybody know any good beginner things to play on the guitar? I wanna start up with the guitar playing again. Eventually I wanna be able to play some racy guitar solos. Woot.

For good beginner songs, try the beatles. I've got a book of music for all of their songs, some very simple ones that sound good, and some slightly harder too.

If you want something with a couple of great solos try Johnny B good by Chuck Berry.

chip9munk, I have looked at the guidelines which say
Quote:
Link policy
Please don't post URL's or direct links to product vendors. If you want to discuss something related to LD's then please keep it general and don't place a link to a site where you can order the product.

so you can mention it, but if you plan on adding a link check that this wouldn't break this guideline colgate



Current LD goal(s): 6 LDs per year * ND goals - actively incubate interesting/fun dreams

yeah I don't like Blink-182...

but Muse - guitar genius. Piano genius. Just... genius. Not very easy for beginners though.

some of radiohead is quite easy to play, like Street Spirit (fade out), and, erm, bits of Subterrean Homesick Alien.

I never got used to guitar. I can strum chords but not much else.

I used to just play the bass lines on guitar from their first album

A wonderful happy song that I've just started playing is "meet me on the corner", by Lindisfarne. Very simple, and makes you feel warm inside smile

I've been playing guitar and bass for a while now, mostly self-taught with a couple of lessons to send me on my way at the start. I recommend Jack Johnson for starters. I'm not a big fan of him anymore, but it's what I started on.

btw: Street Spirit by Radiohead = one of the greatest songs ever.

I've tried for two years to learn guitar, but I just can't do it. Maybe I'm just a piano person and I always will be. I'd just like to be able to play guitar decently before I graduate High School (which leaves me a few more years)

You see, I plan on being a music composer for video game companies and I need to know instruments. I know quite a few already and I'm in 8th grade, but I'm trying to be better and learn more.

Just keep practicing and challenging yourself with harder (but not undoable songs)

I'd love to be able to play guitar - I've tried a couple of times, then stopped for a while and never got back into it. I play the piano and saxophone, I can't see why I'm not getting into it.
