Easy Acoustic Guitar Songs

If you have managed to learn the basic open chords and can play them relatively comfortably, then its time you tried some easy acoustic guitar songs. I’ve added a few so that you can try some out and once you get a feel for it you can try a few more.  If you find it difficult don’t lose heart, while i call these easy songs, you might not pick up how to play it immediately, just listen to original song and play along, then once you have a feel for the rythym and the tempo then try it out on your own. Trust me, once you get the hang of it, you’ll be hooked.
