I'd say for some decent solos, the small solo after the choruses in sweet child o mine is a good place to start. After that maybe take a look at some AC/DC solos, that should give you a nice grounding. And I think the quintessential beginners solo is nothing else matters, which is a solo I still love to pull out after 6 years.
Those should put you in a decent position with regards to solos.
Any more questions, just ask

My first solo was stairway to heaven, my second was back in black. Those were perfect starts for me, I can now play almost any solo after 1 year. Check out my covers on youtube to see what I mean.

Although the vets here hate these threads because they have their own thread for these questions, i'll still answer :P

The first proper solo I learnt was Goldfingers 99 Red Balloons. Really easy and fun.

I am still working on Nothing Else Matters.

AC/DC are high recommended by many for beginner soloists. You Shook Me All Night Long is apparently one of the easiest.
