Beginner Guitar Player

Post by NYRockCity » Fri Nov 08, 2019 7:25 am

Does anyone have any suggestions for what the easiest Kiss song to learn is?

I was thinking Hard Luck Woman, but I decided to ask your thoughts.

For a "beginner'...
Hard Luck Woman, though not "hard", is not "easy" either.

TRY:

Lick It Up
Heaven's On Fire
Rock And Roll All Nite
God of Thunder

Rock Bottom sounds pretty easy.

Also She is easy, I'm a drummer with minor guitar skills and still managed to learn it.

I started out with Strutter.
My guitar teacher said he was going to use it for other beginners.
It is a great song that is easy to play once you learn bar chords.

I got my guitar teacher to dive right into "I Stole Your Love" right of the bat. I did mastered that one, and yet I struggle with so many that have been mentioned. I just kept playing it over, and over until it became second nature. I haven't played my blue Iceman in years though. I got it 1995, and it was the only Iceman I ever found in the music shops here (I would have preferred black of course). I bought it for $750. It had a custom case too, but I never could afford to get it. One of these days I would like to get a few of the minor fix ups done for it, and get a new practice amp. It would be fun to try, and fumble my way in an attempt to play it again.

Heaven's on Fire is just about the easiest song in the world to play.

Goodbye on Paul's solo album is not difficult and a lot of fin to play.

Hard Luck Woman was one of the first I learned. If you're just a beginner, it's a good one to get your strumming rhythm and basic chords moving - then once you've got those basics down you can move on to the power chord/riffy stuff.. :)
