I'm generally a beginner..
by that i mean im pretty good with chords, bar chords and other basics

so i does anyone know any good songs that are not metal...fast or old
something that people will know
thats easy

I can't believe I am going to say this, it is against every moral fiber I have. You're Beautiful by James Blunt.

the song that may be the hardest is holiday because theres more chords than the rest of the other songs, but there pretty straight forward
