first off. its usually best for someone first starting to learn in standard for numerous reasons. imo, metallica and black sabbath offer the best standard riffs.

second. drop c# and drop c are different, which one are u asking about?
Mesa F-30 - 1x12 V30
PRS SE Custom 24 (GFS Crunchy PATs)
PRS SE Singlecut (Evo/Air Norton)
1989 Starforce (GFS PowerRails)

then my last serenade is a good bet for a beginner, mostly power chords the main riff is easy

yer i new to guitar so i dunno what a riff is and a power chord or are they just fancy name for simple things ause at the moment i can play they say quite slowly and can do a 12th frt harmony

a riff is just a bit of the song that is repeated, i just realised it gets a tad fast at the end, it may be hard for a guy just starting out

as for a power chord i'd look up a lesson, ill probably add more problems:P

I'd suggest playing in standard for a bit untill you know what power chords are your hands get used to playing guitar ect.. A couple of lessons couldn't hurt and there is a lot of decent free ones online. As for songs in standard learn some Metallica or Megadeth stuff, for drop c Id suggest My last Serenade and Killswitch Engage's version of Holy Diver.. You could also always make up your own songs, thats pretty much all I did learning I think I improved much faster learning scales, chords and making songs up. Either way, practice lots stick to it your will be shredding in no time, hope this helped.
