If you’re looking for a super easy beginner guitar song, then Stand By Me is a good one for you.

In this lesson, Marty Schwartz shows you how to play the F#m chord, which is really just an E minor chord that has been moved up a tone. In order to get the F#m though, you’ll need to bar across the second fret.

Stand By Me is a good song for beginners because the strum pattern is fairly simple, and the chord progression is also fairly simple.
