With every new guitar student I always try and get them to learn songs they know and ideally like! I'm always surprised how many students choose the same songs.
In Decembe I had 3 new students and two of them choose to learn 'Stand by Me' by Ben E King. In fact over the year I think I must have taught that song to over ten student!
Other popular songs include;
- Let it be by The Beatles
- Hotel California by The Eagels
- Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin
- No Woman No Cry by Bob Marley
If you're cons guitar lessons with me or someone else it's a really good idea to pick about three or four songs you'd love to learn to give to your tutor. It's so much easier to learn when you like the songs and it makes practicing a lot more fun!
