The Top 20 Acoustic Guitar Songs to Learn My personal search for great acoustic guitar songs

When I began my search for the best/great acoustic guitar songs ever produced I began to dream of a time when I was a voracious young guitarists trying to digest everything the radio could spew. Since I started playing guitar a few decades ago, countless acoustic guitar songs have been produced that are perfect for beginners to experience the range of sound that can be produced by the acoustic guitar.

Now I am a little biased and my choices below reflect that. I went for what sounds good (to my ear and taste) played on the acoustic guitar; I also looked at songs that would be a slight (in some cases hard) challenge to beginners but songs that would add value to their repertoire; in fact the following songs if played well would add value to any guitarist’s repertoire. The following list is by no means exhaustive; it is merely my personal search throughout the internet to re-acquaint myself with what has been produced since the 1960s and really, to get back into one of my very first loves; actually the first dream I ever had as a boy of nine years old – of playing in a rock band. First Ten Classics

1. Tears in Heaven – Eric Clapton

I thought I would start with one of the evergreen masters of acoustic/electric guitar. It has some nice touches in it that will make you sound good.

2. Drive – Incubus

Nice driving rhythm acoustic guitar song that is great to play at parties.

3. I’m Yours – Jason Mraz

When I first heard this song over in Honolulu it took me by surprise; a great song for those beach parties.

4. Californication – Red Hot Chilli Peppers

A nice classic introduction worth learning.

5. Bubbly – Colbie Caillat

OK, I have to admit this song grew on me; nice easy song for acoustic guitar.

6. Classical Gas – Mason Williams

A little harder to master but once you do you wont be able to put it down.

7. Knocking on heaven’s door – Bob Dylan

A great Dylan classic that is easy to play and would be great at parties.

8. Wanted (Dead or Alive) – Bon Jovi

A real classic, couldn’t go past it. Nice distinctive intro known widely – this will put you on the map; not too difficult to play.

9. Blackbird – The Beatles

This is not a song I would normally go for, but I think it is worth trying as it will extend your skill.

10.Come on get higher

A nice easy-going sing-along song that will wrap this first list of ten up.

Second Ten Classics

11. Every breath I take – Police/Puff daddy

A classic from the eighties

12. Stairway to Heaven – Led Zeppelin

Was the measure of a guitarist in the seventies

13. Hotel California – The Eagles

This will stretch you; worth the time it will take for you to master.

14. Sweet Home Alabama – Lynyrd Skynyrd

A widely recognised song throughout the world

15. Layla Uplugged – Clapton

This one you will enjoy, nice change in style

16. Wish you were here – Pink Floyd

Classic Pink Floyd easy to play

17. Nothing else matters – Metallica

Classic Metallica – great sound

18. More than words – Extreme

This is a great song to extend your collection of chords

19. Wonderwall – Oasis

Another distinctive classic beginning riff

20. If – Bread

This is an oldie with a lot of interesting chords and changes for you to master and put together.

Learn to Read Piano Music

Learning a chord-based approach to playing the piano might have you rockin 'and rollin' in not time, but many people want to know and understand what they are playing by learning how to read piano music. This could take time, a few months or even years, but those who learn to read piano music do not have to hear a song before they play it. They simply look over the piece of sheet music and are able to 'hear' the score before them. Understanding the notes is like being able to read another language.

The first steps to learning how to read piano or keyboard sheet music involve learning the notes and clefs that a piece of music is composed of. This will let you know wherever you need to play in a treble clef, or high tone, or if the piece is written for deeper or lower tones, called a bass clef. Next, you must be able to design which notes are what, where they are located, and why they are there.

Notes are broken down and depicted individually on what is called a stave, the five parallel lines music is written on. Depending on where the note is on the stave, on the lines or in the spaces, this will formulate how a song should be played. Different parts of the musical score will detail each section's notes all at once to help the conductor lead an entire symphony.

The next step to reading piano sheet music is a bit more complicated. The time signature is another important feature to focus on because it tells you at what pace the song should be played. These are often made up of vertical bar lines, which indicate when and where a song begins and stops. On this time signature there are numbers that indicate how many beats exist per measure. You'll learn to recognize the time signature, what it means, and how it controls the rhythm of a song as you continue learning how to read piano music.

The final step to understanding a piano score understands understanding the next type of signature. This is called the key signature. The key signature tells you in what key the piece should be played. This can vary from sharp, to flat, to natural. Sharp keys are the black keys found just above the white keys on a piano or keyboard. The notations on the key signature indicate what part or parts of a song need to be emphasized or not. By learning to read piano music, you will not only be able to understand the piece before you, but you will also gain a deficit appreciation for the music.

Good Causes Why You Ought to Be taught a Musical Instrument

For anyone who’s ever considered learning a musical instrument in the past, this article explains to you exactly why you should think about it a little bit more seriously. You might know about a few opportunities you’ll gain from doing this, but you might not know about some. Hopefully this will give you the determination you need to stop being lazy and start learning to play.

Join a band – I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t want to join a band. For a start, it’s cool. Secondly, if you’ve got the stuff, there’s a chance you’ll be able to make yourself some good money. I’m not saying you’ll be part of the next Coldplay or U2, but even if you’re well known locally you’ll be able to earn great money from performing. Third, even if you don’t make a lot of money from it, just think of the buzz you get from people dancing around to your music.

Impress the opposite sex – Just think of all the girls who dig rock stars? Even ones who aren’t particularly attractive – even ones who are 75 years old. Think of Mick Jagger – he’s always been able to bag a supermodel despite his age. There’s something about being more attractive if you have a musical talent.

Change of career – 9 to 5 might be taking a toll on your morale. Yeah, it pays, but you hate having to turn up every day and answer to someone you don’t like. Just think, while you’re photocopying for the 80th time in a day, get learning an instrument and the mundanity of your office job might soon seem like a lifetime away.

Improve employability – Although this might not be as big an opportunity as the rest, don’t be surprised if it helps your chances at getting a job. Just think – you and another person are going for the same job. You both have identical degrees, identical interview answers and identical hands on experience. When the interviewer asks if you have any other skills, you mention that you’re an excellent guitar player, where your rival has nothing to offer. You’ve showed your potential boss that you’re capable of sticking at something and that’s a fantastic ability to have in any job.

You need a hobby – Everybody’s been stuck in a rut before. Even if you have a job, you might be in that routine where you get home from work, eat junk and go to sleep. Starting a new hobby will help you get your zest for life back.

Song writer – You might fancy your chances at writing – might have been great at poetry in your youth but never really thought about writing a song. If you learn music, there’s a better chance of you being able to put your words into song.

If you’re trying to learn an instrument, whatever the reason, with the evolution of the internet, you’re able to learn through all kinds of different channels. It’s easier than ever to learn, so don’t waste your opportunity. You’ve been able to learn through YouTube and online music sites for a while now, but lately there’s been a more effective way to learn.
