Hey guys
I have played the acoustic guitar for some while now , learning the basics, memorizing the chords , scales and healing my bloody fingers (literally!) ...

So now I'm confused about what song should i learn first ?
there are a lot of choices , but they are all either too easy or too hard ( at least for my level )
I'm asking for a - in the middle - song , not too hard or easy , and i wish you guys could help me here , what song do you believe i should start with ?

thanks , and i apologize for my poor English .

I'd say start with an easy song. There's no greater feeling than when you can play your first song =] With that said...what sorta stuff do you listen to? It's always best to start with stuff you know and like in my opinion...

edit: a fun song to learn would be house of the rising sun. there's no awkward chords, it's well known and fun to play, and you can just strum the chords if you want.

Not sure if you might find this too easy, but Mad World by Tears For Fears (...Or more recently, by Adam Lambert) is a pretty easy 4 chord song. Am, C, G and D are the only 4 chords you need to know.

That's originally by Gary Jules, which sounds better than the tears for fears thing imo

No it was originally by tears for fear, but re-done by Gary Jules for Donny Darko.

But back on topic, I would agree with House of the Rising sun, or even just learning to strum the chords to Good Riddance (Time of your life) by Green Day, as thats like 5 chords I believe.
