Alrighty folks, I'm in need of some songs to show a friend here at uni. He's a newbie at guitar, but he is trying to learn.

His favourite bands: Mastodon, Dream Theater, Muse, BTBAM, Type O Negative, Theory of a Deadman, and most obscure Prog rock. I offered to help him out in finding songs to play, then realised I couldn't think of any that were easy.

Any ideas?

Stop posting so much lol.

I don't listen to that genre but it is better to learn stuff at first that is really easy, bob dylan or something.

Lol, i suppose it makes sense.

Well having such a limit to bands to learn makes it very hard to say from me, i don't listen to that music.

Anything would be good. He just has those as his favourites, if you have any other suggestions that'd be fine.

bad girlfriend by Theory of a deadman is not hard at all. Smells like teen spirit nirvana. The Beautiful people by Marilyn Manson. these are all very simple songs.

out of the bands you named theory of a deadman would be the easiest.

sorry i dont know a whole lot of prog bands or i would recommend some.

Type O negative songs arent all that hard (usually) if you dont mind tuning your guitar way way low.

other than that just really chord oriented songs.

oh and also rammstein songs arent very hard and still have some ****in dope riffs.

Well I would say Surrounded by Dream Theater. It's not too hard. Probably the easiest Dream Theater song that actually has an interesting guitar part.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.
