The strumming pattern in that tune is also really straightforward so you shouldn’t experience too many problems during your learning process. The guitar lesson above is really useful, so feel free to check it out.

Use Somebody is one of the most popular songs by Kings Of Leon. I’m sure that you all know that it is a massive hit. But are you aware that it’s actually really easy to play? Whether you want to learn the rhythm or lead section, it shouldn’t cause you too much trouble. I encourage you to check out the lesson above.
3. Kings Of Leon – Closer
Closer is another example of a song by Kings Of Leon which is so fun and easy to play! I think that this riff sounds best when you play it with a band, but of course, I highly recommend practicing it on your own. Don’t worry if you can’t achieve the same tone as on the record – Matt Followill used a lot of different guitar pedals for that tune. But if you have a reverb and delay pedal, you should definitely use it in this case!
4. Kings Of Leon – Sex On Fire
Sex On Fire is another massive hit by Kings Of Leon. This is one of the main songs that made this band popular all around the world and what’s interesting, it’s actually really easy to play! I think that learning the main riff of this track is an absolute must for any fan of this band. It’s also a good proof that awesome riffs don’t have to be complex.
5. Kings Of Leon – Wait For Me
One of my favorite songs by Kings Of Leon. For those who don’t know, Wait For Me was a part of their Mechanical Bull (2013) album. The intro riff is really simple, so you shouldn’t experience too many problems while learning it. Bear in mind that the original version features the use of a chorus pedal, so if you don’t have it, your tone may be a bit different. Nevertheless, it’s still a really cool song to practice!
6. Kings Of Leon – Pyro
This version of Pyro is different from the original version, because it’s just a raw acoustic version. You’ll see that the whole song is based on only three chords: C#m, A and E. That’s why it’s a great option for the amateur musicians! The strumming pattern in here is also really simple, so you should be able to pick it up really quickly. I have to say that I like this version – what do you think about it?
7. Kings Of Leon – Radioactive
Time for something really cool! Radiactive is a song that comes from Kings Of Leon’s Come Around Sundown (2010) album. It’s a cool song to practice and it’s not too difficult. Moreover, you can try to play this song with Matt and Caleb. Learning with the actual band members sounds like a really interesting option, so make sure to check out the video above!
8. Kings Of Leon – Waste A Moment
Waste A Moment is a song that comes from Kings Of Leon’s Walls (2016) album. There are two guitar parts in here, but both of them are fairly simple to learn. Whether you want to play Caleb’s or Matt’s part, the guitar lesson above will definitely help you understand how you can achieve it.
9. Kings Of Leon – The Bandit
The Bandit is a relatively new song that comes from Kings Of Leon’s latest album called When You See Yourself (2021). I think that the main riff from this song is perfect for beginners – you should be able to learn it without any problems. Check out the lesson above, it’s really detailed!
10. Kings Of Leon – Walls
Walls is a really beautiful tune that you can practice on your acoustic guitar. The chords in here are really easy, but you may experience some problems with the right strumming technique. Nevertheless, the guitar lesson above will definitely help you to resolve any of your problems. I think that anyone who’s looking for some easy Kings Of Leon songs to play on guitar should practice this tune!
11. Kings Of Leon – The Bucket
Again, this is an acoustic version, so it’s much easier than the electric guitar version. The Bucket is a pretty old song by Kings Of Leon, but it’s definitely one of their most iconic tunes. Although I prefer the original version, playing it on the acoustic guitar is also really simple and fun, so I encourage you to practice it on your own too.
12. Kings Of Leon – 17
17 is another example of a fairly easy Kings Of Leon song which sounds much more complex than it really is. The guitar lesson above features tabs, so you can use them and play along with the teacher. Undoubtedly, it’s a really cool tune to practice. I’m surprised that it wasn’t a big hit – I think it’s one of the best songs by this band.
13. Kings Of Leon – Echoing
Echoing by Kings Of Leon mainly consists of basic chords and power chords, so it shouldn’t be too difficult even for amateur guitarists. I really like the upbeat tempo of this tune and I’m sure that you’ll enjoy it too! The guitar lesson above explains everything in a lot of detail, so make sure to have a look at it.
14. Kings Of Leon – Talihina Sky
