    A List Of Song For Begginners.....

    Hey all, i was just looking through my collection of guitar related files and came across this. Its a list of songs rated by difficulty, which i found really usefull when i was just starting on the guitar - helped to give me ideas for what kinda song to learn next, so, i thought i'd share it with you guys.

    I remember there was a post not very long ago asking for songs so begginners, so maybe this will help.

    Remember though, i did not write any of the following so the difficulty ratings (and comments made about some of the songs) are not my own. Well, here it is!..........

    You wouldn't happen to know the strum pattern to "Closing Time" would you? If you just say like eighth, eighth, quarter, etc, I can figure out the up stroke and down stroke.

    Mucho thanks for posting that list!
