ive been playing for a little over a year now and am teaching myself off of youtube.

i'll admit im pretty garbage but i got a pretty decent sounding intro solo to one by metallica down (excluding the final few parts) and i got the fade to black first solo in the works now.

I can play the main parts of a good chunk of songs like
-beat it
-the otherside
-the unforgiven
-carry on my wayward son
-sweet dreams
-paranoid


im just looking for good suggestions as to what songs arent ridiculously complicated that i can play. I'm not trying to shred or be jumping all over the guitar, i want a nice simple song with a good sound.

Before I suggest any songs for you, I must first know: Can you whammy without a whammy bar?

I guess that rules out any Nirvana or The Who songs...
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Try stuff by Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Tom Morello, and Red Hot Chili Peppers

This song is in Eb standard, but you don't actually need the Eb, so I just play it in E standard. There's nothing batshit crazy on this song, and it sounds pretty cool. The second solo in the middle of the song can take a while to get down.
