Ok I want you to post 3 songs you think every guitarist should know how to play.

Here's mine:
Back in Black - ACDC
Enter Sandman - Metallica
Paranoid - Black Sabbath

Hopefully if this thread takes off, I can tally up the results and post the top 3.

PS
I have used the searchbar - to no avail

I know that this is the Pit, but I thought I might get more results here...if the Mods do decide to move it, I'll understand.

If you're just talking about the riffs, and not solos then that's a little different.

I suppose my list is:
TNT - AC/DC
Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Sweet Child O Mine - Guns N' Roses

Of course, that's just my opinion, which doesn't really amount to anything in this world.
Gear:
Peavey Millennium 4 BXP
Peavey TNT 115
Gibson Les Paul Studio
Blackstar Ht-1R
#8
Smells Like Teen Spirit
Smoke on the Water
Stairway to Heaven

These are the three that everyone should know. They are all easy meaning anyone who calls themselves a guitarist should be able to play them, so therefore everyone should know them. However, they are not the greatest of songs, just essentials.
Any spelling or grammatical errors written above are because of my inferior brain to yours. Good job, you won life.

Wanted Dead Or Alive - Bon Jovi
Sweet Child of Mine - Guns N Roses
Voodoo Child - Jimi Hendrix

^^^ crap! I forgot smoke on the water... oh well
Gear:

Peavey TNT 115

Actually I never met any guitarist who could play the whole Smoke on the Water, it's not a hard song but people learn the main riff and give up.

I use the beginning of Stairway to tune my guitar. I can automatically tell if a string is out of tune by playing it.
Therefore Stairway=win

And I've never understood why I should dislike a song because it's popular with people who know nothing about music.

This thread is silly, there are no songs you HAVE to learn on guitar and if there are, then those songs quickly become annoying and cheesey, no matter how good they were originally. Look at smoke on the water, Sweet child o'mine and stairway to heaven, they're banned in guitar shops FOR A REASON. I prefer guitarists who play stuff i've never heard before, as long as it's good of course.
