i receive my guitar today so i'm learning. i want to learn a good but easy song for the beginning. what you recommend me? anything! obviously a good one.

umm well you can't just pick up a guitar and just learn songs. you need to learn scales, and start from the beginning. as much as u would want to just jump right in and learn fretts to play a song, you should learn the notes, scales, and all the basics. so prety much some beginner music theory. however if you really want to just learn a song right off the bat, everyone seems to know how to play smoke on the water, which is very simple, so i guess you could start with that.

the first song i ever played was the burning red by machine head, completely mellow, simple to play, should help you get used to picking individual strings and fretting power chords..

buy a beatles hits songbook. They are really easy songs and crowd pleasers. Plus it will make your parents happy, an important thing when you become better and want them to buy you more stuff

Yes 'tis, the house of the rising sun is a very easy chord based song, black sabbath riffs arent usually too hard (Paranoid, iron man, electric funeral)

Learn your basic open chords first, then some scales.

It'll help in the long run.
