I finally found an all-acoustic music site! This is great, it is obviously still under-construction, but I like it! Anyways, for this easy guitar songs to learn, it would be nice to actually add the lessons here, either by youtube videos, or you guys yourself!


admin  on May 10, 2010

Yes, keep checking back and we will have tutorial videos up. Within a week for sure, if not sooner! Any other suggestions? Do you prefer tabs, videos, sheet music, etc?


hihicanvaskid  on June 8, 2010

Looks like my request went through! Well it’s perfect. Tabs would be a nice addition, though not a necessary one. Now, though not necessarily on this page, would it not be wise to have a poll page to hold votes for the next top acoustic song? With registered users being the only ones able to take a vote, due to spam of course.


elton  on August 24, 2010

i love to play acoustic. in fact, i’m a performer here in our place. i need someone to manage me (if possible, to have a recordings). i’m a composer, singer and guitar player..please if you guys out there are willing to manage me, i’m pretty much willing too.
god bless you all.

headstock48  on November 5, 2010

Hi. With all due respect, If You Could Only See by Tonic is not a beginner song, with the F chord!

KissMyBass  on October 18, 2011

akira90996  on October 27, 2011

learning2play  on November 6, 2011

asdfghjkl  on November 11, 2011

sheet music for free without a download would be awesome everthing is tabs which dont tell the rythm or strumming that great.


hjnd2396  on November 23, 2011

Good list of songs, but a bit misleading…all of them are great songs, but ones like Nothing Else Matters and Hey There Delilah will be way beyond people who’ve only been playing for a couple months or so…at least to play them right. (I speak as having played for several years and knowing LOTS of guitarists of varying skill levels).


heenal  on November 26, 2011

I like your site and songs I like to learn


beginner  on December 15, 2011

would anybody be able to find the easiest way to play “walkin after midnight” by patsy cline?.. an instructional video would be cool.


larivblt  on December 22, 2011

loving this site.. wish i could have come across it sooner


kingabitheawesome  on December 26, 2011

The site is awesome, but free sheet music would just be amazing. There is only tab out there and i can’t read it. Others have asked about sheet music… so i’m thinking people want sheet music PLEASE 😉


Vishvshrey Acharya  on December 31, 2011

Guitaring made easy !!!!! loved greenday’s time of your life


rockerchic  on January 2, 2012

It would help a lot if there was sheet music or something showing the chords and strings u are suppose to strum or hold down that would be a life saver but yea I found this site very helpful great work I found everything fast and easy & I like how itz not like a list of like songs from the 80’s or 50’s like most sites are


noobie9  on January 7, 2012

When she plays time of your life, all of the chords song exactly the same.


moses  on January 22, 2012

Jojo95  on January 30, 2012

French Property Tony  on February 15, 2012

iamabanana  on July 10, 2012

Andrew  on July 31, 2012

Great list will have to try some of these out. Keep up the good work..


Rauanium  on August 26, 2012

hello , this site is great …. i want to ask, songs ordered by their easiness ?


FireCrackaJoe  on February 28, 2013

This site is a very good site to start learning some stuff, but a few songs are rather a bit harder for people just beggining or for only playing for a few months, like Nothing else matters, and hey there delilah. Other than that, it’s a good site. Keep adding more new songs please! Love what you have done here.


bones777  on May 31, 2013
