11 Easy Guitar Songs For Kids

If you got your kid a guitar for their birthday and they don’t know where to start, this list of 11 easy guitar songs for kids is a great resource.

I learned to play guitar when I was 15, so the songs I started out with were songs I heard on the radio or songs that I really, really loved. This probably made my life a little more difficult since I didn’t start with the easiest options, but I learned a lot in a pretty short period of time since I was dedicated. I think playing an instrument at a young age is a great skill because it develops your creativity and dedication. I tried to play the viola when I was in fourth grade and gave up in about a week. I often wonder where I’d be now if I had continued playing, but then I remember the neck pain and I’m glad I stopped. Sure, learning guitar made my fingers hurt (sometimes bleed), but it was well worth it. I felt extremely impressive.
