5. Shawn Mendes - 'Stitches'
Shawn Mendes' breakthrough single 'Stitches' has taken on a life of its own in the Vodafone Big Top 40 chart. Is it because of Shawn's killer vocals? Partly. But it is also down to the track's simple song structure. Go go go!
6. Ed Sheeran - 'Give Me Love'
Ok we're not asking you to challenge Ed Sheeran to a guitar battle but 'Give Me Love' is one of the simpler songs in Ed's repertoire. Its not like we're asking you to learn 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You'.
7. Justin Bieber - 'Love Yourself'
Vodafone Big Top 40 No.1 single anyone? The beauty of Ed Sheeran's writing is that if you spend enough time practising it, you WILL be able to play it effortlessly.
