Re: What was your first song?

The first song that I learned was John Denver's "Country Roads" which was way back in the early 1970s.  I believe his tunes and guitar playing are what inspired me to to learn how to play the guitar.

Re: What was your first song?

My grandson just learned a Nirvana song titled, "about a Girl" . It was surprisingly easy.
All verses were Eminor, G and the choruses went C#,F#, E,A,C .


We pronounce it "Guf Coast".
Ya'll wanna go down to the Guf?

First song I learned to play ~correctly~ and all the way through was Blackbird by The Beatles. It's a very fun song to play.

Re: What was your first song?

That is a good one to learn and one of my early tunes.  Good chord changes and lyrics that stay in your mind.
