A Couple Fun Songs to Play

“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words.” — Victor Hugo

“All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff.” — Frank Zappa

“I’ve been imitated so well I’ve heard people copy my mistakes.” — Jimi Hendrix

Here are a couple of fun songs to play.

Working Man (Rush)

Believe it or not, there are some Rush songs that you don’t need a music degree from Berkeley to play! 🙂

Rush has been my favorite band since I was a kid.

I even play in a Rush tribute band in the Chicago area (Animation a Tribute to Rush – check it out: https://atributetorush.com/)

However, I can tell you that some songs aren’t really out of reach for many of you.

Working Man is one of them.

In fact, there are a number of my beginning students that actually are making great progress with this song (even on acoustic guitar!).

And, even if Rush isn’t your main band, you can still learn a lot by figuring out how to play this song.

Here ya go!

Here’s the TAB that contains the main parts: Working Man TAB

Day Tripper

Beatles songs are timeless. It seems that every generation at least knows about their songs (seen the movie Yesterday yet? Go see it!)

So, it is always a good idea to have some Beatles songs in your back pocket to play.

Here is a video on how to play the main riff to the song Day Tripper.

I hope this helps make you more successful in your playing!Have fun!

Rock on until the next time!

YOU are Unique With a Heart of Gold | Easy Acoustic Guitar Songs

“I believe every guitar player inherently has something unique about their playing. They just have to identify what makes them different and develop it.” – Jimmy Page

“My guitar is not a thing. It is an extension of myself. It is who I am.” Joan Jett

So, my big brother was playing guitar and I figured I’d try it too. Stevie Ray Vaughan

Love those quotes.

How about that: YOU have your own unique voice on the guitar. It doesn’t matter where you are in your playing.

Sometimes it is just jamming on some songs,

Sometimes it is making your own stuff up,

Sometimes its just sitting around the living room strumming a song,

Sometimes it’s onstage in front of cheering fans

It doesn’t matter. Don’t think you have to be a mega rock star to have an impact in your music.

I know a guy that loves to play for his infant son. What joy there is just in that.

Every note you play, every chord you strike, makes the world a better place.

Keep on picking and strumming everyone!


I have a song for you to try out in the video above. Some of my students are already working on this. It is great for beginner and intermediate players.

It’s Heart of Gold by Neil Young. It’s great for learning not only common chords used in music, but also how to change those chords effectively and to work on basic strumming. I slow it down in the video too for you to follow along.

A great acoustic guitar song to learn. If you have some basic knowledge and experience on guitar, you should have all the tools needed to play the song on guitar.

In this guitar tutorial, I broke the guitar down into 3 basic parts: the verse (the Intro has the same chords as well as the rhythm guitar behind the guitar solo), chorus, and the bridge.

Intro 1:21
Verse 1:37
Chorus 1:49

Rock On!
