As far as instrumentals go, Orion and Suicide & Redmption by Metallica aren't too difficult if you don't count Kirk's solo parts (James does some great, slower solos though)
Gear
ESP LTD Truckster James Hetfield Sig
120W Bugera 333 Amp

Agreed, thats actually exactly what I was thinking when I read this post. Orion is pretty sweet, and fairly easy. A little complicated a certain parts, I believe the bass is actually the hard part.

Depending on what you mean by not too tough, try Stream of Consciousness by Dream Theater. It's difficult, but learning and playing it is awesome.

It was the only task I would undertake...

look for classical guitar songs that are guitar 3 and guitar 2, some are easy and gets you into the more classical aspect of guitar. opens a lot of doors.

Tell me what nation on this earth, was not born of tragedy-Primordial

If you're into the shred/instrumental rock stuff, id recommend these in increasing difficulty:

Always With Me, Always With You by Satch (easiest song of the 3, helps with tapping and legato)
Technical Difficulties by Racer X (helps your alternate picking/legato/string skipping alot)
For the Love of God by Steve Vai (The song isnt technically difficult save the solo)

Try to achieve the feel of the song for the satch and vai one.
#23
I dreamed there was no war - The Eagles

The Godfather theme- Nino Rota (this is fingerstyle but not too hard)
Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy GX
Epiphone Les Paul Ultra
Ibanez RG5ERX1
Fender MIM Telecaster
Fender Acoustic
Fender Supersonic Combo
Boss TU-2 / CS-3 / DD-20 / Vox Satchurator / Hardwire CR-7 / Vox Big Bad Wah / ISP Decimator G-String
#25
Always with me always with you - Joe Satriani

Perfect song to build up your legato. Sounds great and it's fairly simple.
#26
Up In Flames - Joe Satriani

Its so easy I learned the entire peice by ear. But it still sounds awesome.
#27
State of Grace by Liquid Tension Experiment.
It's easy but sounds awesome.

if u can read learn music and like classical stuff, some bach violin/cello suites would be great... most of them are easy and you can hone lots of aspects of ur technique... as far as songs go orion would be my choice and i think axe720 was quite right in pointing out up in flames by satch
