    So I haven't played my guitar in probably over a year and I would like to get back into. I was wonder what are some good and "easy" songs to play. And by easy I don't mean anything like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I mean someone that has a Grade 3 could easily do or might be a little challenging.

    I was thinking about trying some Tenacious D, some Starbomb and NSP, some Sonic the Hedgehog song and Undertale because who doesn't love playing their favourite gaming soundtracks.

    Any other suggestions? My strengths are probably finger picking because I'm terrible at memorising chords and doing hard chords might hurt my hand since I haven't practised in so long and I tend to like more upbeat songs

    That's funny because I've gotten back into my guitar after 6 months of it being in the cupboard because of exams.

    I also love finger picking because of the minute detail which brings together the whole composition. I'm starting with this:

    It looks challenging for me and I have self taught myself so if you're grade 3 then it should be a nice composition to learn.

    Hopefully will learn it all in a week or 2.

    I've always wanted to play Final Fantasy 7's battle music theme on acoustic which is something I'll need to look into.
