    I’m just starting to learn some songs (I am still very much a beginner).

    I really love the YT channel Song Notes by David Pots. He has great visuals in his videos and breaks down the skills for each song in a fantastic way. His videos are free and you have the option to pay for the tabs if you want a PDF download. I just stick to the free videos. I’m currently working on the songs Blue Eyes Crying in The Rain, Clay Pigeons, and Blackbird https://www.youtube.com/@songnotes

    I also enjoy Good Guitarist on YT. He has a scrolling tab in his YT videos and breaks down the songs into very simple steps. He also pauses and shows you how to build strumming patterns from the most simple Down to a DUDUUD style strum. He has lots of beginner songs & some fun holiday specific ones. https://www.youtube.com/@Good_Guitarist/about

    Justin Guitar has some great songs and the videos are almost like a streaming guitar hero style lesson. His Grade 1 songs are great. I’m working on Three Little Birds. His website is free for the beginner courses and you can pay for access to a phone app with more songs. I don’t use the app, just the free site. https://www.justinguitar.com/songs?f=beginner_grade_1

    Justin Johnson’s (another Justin) songs are too complicated for me (his are really advanced), but he has an excellent beginner Fingerstyle video. I did the 15 min practice every day after my TAC Challenge for one month and it really improved my fingerstyle which has helped for the song Clay Pigeons that I’m learning on David Pots. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWSSS7tJ2wQ

    I hope this helps!
