Really look into the Beatles for sure.......all of their LP's were released in the 60s except for Let It Be which was 1970..........learn Here Comes the Sun and Blackbird on acoustic

Well i practically know every Beatles song and the Who


You mean familiar with right? (as in you've heard but haven't played on guitar)

if thats the case, there lots of songs to choose from.

off the top of my head...

Magic Bus
Can't Explain
Baba O'Reily
Day Tripper

We can work it out


I will say out of the 2, that The Who probably has more playable songs for the guitar, because the Beatles often had alot of other instruments in the arrangement. With the Who, the guitar part is often a major defining factor in the song.


A good thing to do is...

1) pick a song that you like and are familiar with

2) try and learn it

3) if you find its beyond your current abilities to play ....

pick another song

*if its playable for you....

enjoy playing it. Absorb


repeat this process many times and build yourself up a repertoire. Each time you do this, you internalize more sounds in your head, and develop playing skills on the guitar.

The bigger your repertoire, the more you have to work with. This applies to all of your abilities, including composition and arrangement.

The Who are awesome...i'd add The Kids Are Alright and Substitute to Munky's suggestions. Certainly the better you know a song to listen to the easier it's going to be to learn on guitar. If you're trying to learn to play something but have to keep checking to hear what it's supposed to sound like you're on a hiding to nothing, but if you can happily sing or hum along to every second of one of your favourite tunes that makes the whole process a lot less painful.
