101 Most Popular Guitar Songs

101 MOST POPULAR GUITAR SONGS

You can imagine how many songs I've shown pupils over the many years I've been teaching. From pop, to rock, strumming to gorgeous fingerpicking songs and everything in-between. We've nailed them all. 

Some students know what songs they want to learn, others want to know from me what they should be learning to help them play guitar the best. Either way, I encourage all my guys and gals to tell me about songs they personally love. Songs they learn are then tailored exclusively to them as an individual. 

To help and inspire my tribe, I keep a growing epic list of some of the most popular songs to learn to play on acoustic and electric guitar.

So, here it comes. In no particular order, the juicy list of 101 most popular songs to learn on guitar...
