I am new to acoustic guitar playing and I want to mix in learning some songs to keep from getting bored practicing chords and the like.

What are some easy/popular songs to play for rookies? Genre is not important.
Eh, wrong forum.

But, I would suggest some folk stuff, like Bob Dylan. "Hurricane" or "Sad Eyed Lady of The Lowlands" work well.

Good choice, in my opinion.
