It can be less difficult than people think to learn how to play the songs of The Beatles on the guitar.

This is according to Gibson.com's contributing editor Ellen Barnes, who recommended five of the Fab Four's songs which are relatively easy to master.

Ms Barnes added that seminal Beatles track Helter Skelter is another song that it is possible to get to grips with.
