Ok, lately i've been listening to some SRV records, and I decided to learn a few songs by him. What would be a good few that are among the easiest. The easier the better, because i'm not a great player.

I know, it seems like all his stuff is hard to do. I'll probably have to work up to it.

umm i think Pride and Joy might be something a little easier he's done... hes too uber amazing to have anything REALLY easy
Anyone who thinks that music these days is dead doesn't listen to enough music.

I was listening to pride and joy today, and it doesn't seem super hard (atleast not as hard as scuttle buttin). I'll check it out I guess.

actually the riff to pride and joy isnt toooo hard, you just need to get down srv's picking style and string muting

While its not SRV stuff, it helps you know your blues scales before learning to play things by him.
#13
If i were you, this is what I'd do:

Listen to your fave SRV song and just try to imitate his sound. Don't look at tabs and just see if you can flow with it. In my experience, with srv's wild/untamed style of playing, tabs just can't convey what he's actually playing. It's like you just need to try to match your hands to his without seeing what he's actually doing.... make any sense? probably not.. but still, tabs don't cover srv's playing at all
#16
Dirty Pool might not be that difficult, manageable with lots of practice from an intermediate player.

Other than that, who knows.
#17
learn his version of mary had a little lamb... great song

No they don't, and UG is proof...

I have pretty much mastered the blues scale, thats why I wanted to move on to some harder stuff. Maybe instead of trying to be like someone else, I just may write my own stuff perhaps. Because i'm aweful at reading and playing tab.

Love Stuck Baby and House Is Rockin' are prety easy, but they're more standard rhythm playing. Other than that Cold Shot and Pride & Joy are as said pretty easy once you get the playing style right.

SRV's little wing is quite hard actually IMO.

TS, try lenny.

Mary Had a Little Lamb isn't very difficult. That's the first one I tried successfully

+1 Mary had a little lamb.

Also Scuttle Buttin is pretty cool. But your have to work to get the speed up. SRV was like a machine gun. He shredded in short bursts.
#30
Probably just try getting some of the rhythm down, even if it's not exactly what he plays.
if you listen to him enough you should be able to pickup the licks he does often, just progress your way through it mate, start slow
