The muting sound when you play chords is most likely just you not pressing strings down hard enough, it should come naturally once you have a feel for your instrument and the pressure required to make it ring out.

also... I believe froob = Noobie.

good songs: adams song by blink-182, fight fire with fire by metallica

chording problem: move your fingers as close to the fret markers as possible

getting tired: try alternate picking(dont know many exercises sry)

your left hand will grow stronger by simply playing more, dont overplay though because you will burn out.
the muting sound is becuase you are not pressing all the strings down properly, it may feel like you are but you arent.

Easy songs to learn:
Knocking On Heaven's Door - Guns N Roses
Don't Cry - Guns N Roses
Walk - Pantera
Otherside - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Paranoid - Black Sabbath
Take Me Under - Three Days Grace

Some chromatic exercises good for building strength and accuracy:
|---------------------------------------------------1-2-3-4---|
|-----------------------------------------1-2-3-4-------------|
|-------------------------------1-2-3-4-----------------------|
|---------------------1-2-3-4---------------------------------|
|-----------1-2-3-4-------------------------------------------|
|-1-2-3-4-----------------------------------------------------|

|---------------------------------------------------6-7-8-9---|
|-----------------------------------------5-6-7-8-------------|
|-------------------------------4-5-6-7-----------------------|
|---------------------3-4-5-6---------------------------------|
|-----------2-3-4-5-------------------------------------------|
|-1-2-3-4-----------------------------------------------------|

|------------------------------4------------------------|
|-------------------4-------3---------------------------|
|-------4--------3-------2------------------------------|
|-----3--------2-------1--------------------------------|
|---2--------1------------------------------------------|
|-1-----------------------------------------------------|

Try mixing them up a bit. Skip strings, change the patterns, etc.
If you've never done exercises like these before you will see a massive improvement after a few days.
