10 Easiest Famous Songs To Play On Guitar

There is a long way from being an enthusiastic guitar beginner to mastering this amazing instrument, but our 10 easiest famous songs to play on guitar can be a good stepping stone on that path.

Contrary to the popular belief, most famous songs are not so difficult to play. The simplicity in music doesn’t have to be bad, and the simple songs are often those who stuck the most. The simplest notes combined often have the catchiest result. Just think of drum intro in Queen’s “We Will Rock You”. It can be pulled off basically by a toddler, and still, it stands as one of the most recognizable and famous intros in modern music.



For people who are not familiar with musical instruments, all those catchy sounds can seem very hard to pull off. But, after you master the basics of an instrument (guitar in this case), you’ll see that with a bit of practice and dedication, you can play them very close to the original. However, if you want to stick to playing an acoustic guitar on trips and parties, check out our list of 10 easiest acoustic guitar songs to play.
