    Default Good songs for beginner

    I have just started teaching someone some drum lessons, and they are moving along pretty quickly and understand noting and all of that. It is about time to start teaching them a song or two, and I was wondering, what are some good beginner songs that I can teach them?? Thanks
    being a succesful musician has nothing to do with being signed, popular or making alot of money. It has to do with making great music.

    AC/DC songs are good for beginners to learn.

    yep agreed with above... the first song i ever learnt was Holiday by Greenday. It has a triplet feel and it is good way to get introduced to triplet feel as well.

    Just make sure it's from Is This It? Or Room on Fire.


    Also if they're young try American Idiot by Green Day.

    I would recommend starting with old Beatles songs. Ringo keeps it simple and the melody lines are very catchy. They are very open songs with not a lot of kicks and easy to put fills anywhere. Good luck !

    "Wild Thing" by Ton Loc. That was my first song. And it was new at the time.

    Tom Petty songs are usually pretty straight ahead rock beats, I want to say thats who I started with, but it was 15 years ago, so I forget.
