5 Easy Songs To Play On Guitar

27 Jun 2017 
If you were to use one word to describe southern rockers Lynyrd Simpl Man Skynyrd , resilience is what first comes to mind for me. A plane crash in 1977 which took the lives of singer Ronnie Van Zant and guitarist Steve Gaines put an abrupt end to the band's initial line-up. Few guitar licks are as memorable as the opening plucks of Lynyrd Skynyrd's 1974 hit Sweet Home Alabama. These are the ten Lynyrd Skynyrd deep tracks every classic rock fan should hear. Simple Man, co-written by Ronnie Van Zant and Gary Rossington, has become one of the group's trademark songs.

There are one or two moments where F is played for a split second but the rest of it sounds cool with these chords. It has the same chords as Acoustic Cover Wild Thing(which is always one of the first songs you learn) but has a completely different feel to it. I didn't realise how much I liked the song until I ran through it a couple of times.

Perhaps that's because the song's subject is really a composite of several musicians the Skynyrd crew knew growing up, including current guitarist Ricky Medlocke's father, Shorty Medlocke. Then came a studio album, Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991, their first set of new material since Street Survivors.

On the Hunt was recorded during the tumultuous sessions that resulted in the band's third album, 1975's Nuthin' Fancy; just prior to entering the studio, original drummer Bob Burns left the band to be replaced by Artimus Pyle, and soon after the recording, both producer Al Kooper and guitarist Ed King stopped working with the band.

Few guitar licks are as memorable as the opening plucks of Lynyrd Skynyrd's 1974 hit Sweet Home Alabama. These are the ten Lynyrd Skynyrd deep tracks every classic rock fan should hear. Simple Man, co-written by Ronnie Van Zant and Gary Rossington, has become one of the group's trademark songs.

As a still unfinished song, Lynyrd Skynyrd's Cottonmouth Country is the southern jam without an end, waiting to be completed upon the modern day Lynyrd Skynyrd's door step. The last two songs to top this list of twelve is one by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers' Californication and Wonderwall by Oasis.

The culmination of all the unique qualities that made Skynyrd special: The prominent punch of Leon's bass with AP's rolling drums, the genuineness of Ronnie's lyrics, the unbelievable guitar work throughout and the girls singing for emphasis in the background make this song their greatest.

Their three-guitar lineup gave them an uncommon musical muscle, while their down-to-earth songs spoke plainly and honestly from a working-class Southerner's perspective. Easy guitar songs for beginners are even harder, since you don't really know what is considered easy.
