So far we have the following waiting for you:

Tequila Sunrise by The Eagles:

As soon as you here the opening chord, you will know you are listening to Tequila Sunrise. The distinctive melody is creating by playing a G chord and hammering on to the E note (the second fret of the D string to create a chord called G6) and, although something very simple, it somehow manages to create a distinctiveness all of its own. It’s probably the rhythm pattern, combined with the smooth textural sound that creates this – genius song writing

Lola by The Kinks:

Lola is probably the most challenging of these 5 beginner songs we are bringing two, in that it involves open chords, barre chords, at least 3 different strumming patterns, chords and a constant change of feel regarding the way you need to tackle different segments of the track.

Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison:

Simple chords and strumming patterns mean Brown Eyed Girl is a must for all beginners, and is all the more appetising because of the sing-a-long chorus. A few beers, campfire burning and willing joiners to “your” tune. What is there not to like?

Lyin Eyes by The Eagles:

Lyin Eyes is a challenge to your muscle memory in that you will be playing 2 “G” chords (Major and Major 7th) and need to remember in which order they are played. The length of the verses also vary, so it’ll be more important than ever to know the song 2inside out” in terms of its structure.

Imagine by John Lennon

This iconic piano-based classic should form part of everyone’s guitar repertoire. Written and sung by John Lennon, Imagine was the best selling single of his solo career.

More to follow really soon.
