Well I've bought an acoustic guitar, (Faith - Saturn (too nice for me)) learned a few chords, and played Wonderwall to death! The wife and kids are ready to kill me if I play it again.

So for all of you that started on this song, what were the next 3 songs that you learned to play?

In the same key (capo on 2nd) you can play Bruce Springsteen's Atlanitc City, Just Em-G-C and the occasional D.

I've just learned that Lifehouse- You and Me, Counting Crows- Accientally In Love
are 2 pretty easy songs to play and sing with. I've only been playing 6 months and just started singing to songs in the past week...and I picked these 2 songs up with ease. Give them a shot.
Yeah I've tried singing and playing.

Obviously I can't do two things at once!!
wonderwall was the first song i learned all the way through as well. i can't remember the next 3 for sure.... but i think that they were some combination of these:

extreme - more than words
dave matthews band - crash
dave matthews band - grey street
hank williams, jr. - country boy can survive

if you know and can play wonderwall fairly well i would reccomend these also though:

james blount - you're beautiful
howie day - collide
old crow medicine show - wagon wheel
tom petty - free falling
I never learned Wonderwall. Or even tried.

Regardless, these are good: F-Stop Blues - Jack Johnson
Blackbird - The Beatles
Oh - Dave Matthews

Learning to Fly by Tom Petty. It's a good song to learn to sing along with because the strumming pattern is super simple. It's just FFFCCCCCAAAGGGGG ( make sense ?? no pauses, just up down up down up down, and repeat it throught the lyrics: listen to the song for the exact rhythm, it should be very easy )

F xx3211
C x32010
A x02210
G 3x0033 ( thumb on the low E, it also touches the A to mute it )

gotta be tears in heaven


try, George harrisons: my sweet lord...youl'l learn some quite good chords and you use the capo on the 4th fret. Sounds great.
Tears In Heaven - Clapton
Mr. Jones - Counting Crows
Good Riddance - Greenday
Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd.
I never learned Wonderwall, but I think a song that's around the same difficulty (but a much better song ) would be From The Beginning by Emmerson, Lake, and Palmer.

That's probably the first acoustic song I learned, give or take.

Where have you seen the tab for this? The ones that I've looked at use the capo at the second fret.

Move On-Jet

its a good accoustic song to play and sing i havent been playing long, but its pretty basic but fun.
I never thought about that one. Jet's, 'Move On'. And it's a good song!

Thank people keep them coming!!!

did you use a capo on the 2nd fret

It's not necessary to play it with a capo on the 2nd fret.

Put the capo wherever the key fits your voice. That's the point of a capo.

1. Hurt- Johnny Cash--it was the first song I learned (it only took a half hour and I had only been playing for a week)

2. Wish you were here- Pink Floyd (get to pick a little bit)

3. Crash- Dave Matthews (you'll cramp your hand at first but it is very worth it)
