Guitar lessons for Beginners acoustic easy songs
Even with just a few chords YOU can play great songs - here is a big list of great songs that gradually get harder as you progress through the Beginner's Course! On this page you'll find free video lessons for many of the songs from the songbook.
At the early stages of learning guitar, many people get frustrated because they think the only songs they can play are Baa Baa Black sheep and other such dross... but it's not true! With just a few chords you can play some awesome songs and that is what my Beginner's Songbook's are all about. :)
The book contains 10 songs that work for each Stage of the Beginners Course, starting with very easy 3 chord songs and gradually getting harder until you are using all your open chords (including F) and are exploring cool strumming patterns. If you are beyond that you might like to check out my series of Intermediate Songbooks.
You will find that using the Songbook will make learning the songs a lot easier and there is a very wide range of styles to appeal to most tastes - so go have a look and see if you dig them - Volume 2 features more awesome songs with the same format!
Listed here are the songs from it that I have made video lessons for and although I plan to do all the songs eventually, that is likely to take a few years as there are many areas of the site that need my attention! There is plenty to get you going here for sure, and you can still learn the songs from the songbook on your own too, there are plenty of tips and strum patterns shown to help you!
The JustinGuitar Beginner's Songbooks (Proper paper books!)
I have two volumes of beginners songs! Each have 100 awesome songs, arranged to sync perfectly with my Beginners Course. Ten songs in each stage, gradually getting more challenging as you go through. Each song has tips and strumming suggestions and I honestly think this is the best Beginner's Songbook ever :) Both are spiral bound so stays open easy! Rave reviews from all over the world and the best companion to my course you could have! Appreciate your support.

∆ - note that these were filmed before (some WAY before) the Songbook was written so may have slight differences to the book. I plan to re-film these at some point in the future and bring them up to date and improve the quality.
*2 - Unfortunately we couldn't get a response from Trent Reznor's publishers to include it in the US edition of the songbook and because we want the same book available worldwide it had to be replaced. Disappointing cos I love the song. The video is still live on YouTube, it's just not in the paper book!
