Google Guitar Lessons of the Best Google Guitar Songs!


Google guitar has caught on like wildfire! Not since people began strumming plastic video game guitar controllers with multi-colored fretboards have so many amateur music-lovers decided to take a crack at it themselves.  Here is a collection of some of the best google guitar songs WITH the google guitar lessons of how to play them! If you have one to add, put it in the comments below and it might get posted.

Its a lot easier to play these google guitar songs than you might think! Many people aren't aware that you DON'T have to use your mouse cursor to play the strings, you can just hit the number keys on your keyboard instead!  Just hit the numbers on your keyboard in the order shown below and you too can play the same song! Note that numbers without spaces between them are chords, so you hit those numbers at the same time!

Tip: I recommend opening a new window with the Google Guitar in it and moving it and the google guitar lessons window to opposite sides of the screen so you can see both.

Start with an easy one:
