Smoke on the Water.... cliche, yes, but still a good song. Sunshine of Your Love by Cream is easy too.

Jailbreak by Thin Lizzy is pretty easy too. And most definitely classic rock

Wonderwall or any Oasis for that matter is NOT classic rock. And if your gonna do Hendrix's take on Hey Joe right, then its not gonna be easy at all for a beginning guitarist.

All ac/dc stuff is pretty easy most of their songs are 3 chords rock songs. So that would be a good place to start. Highway to hell is really easy and is a classic.
