Im saying About a Girl by Nirvana.

Its simply just the E chord and G chord. And the words arent to hard to hit either!
*The BASSics* Of the Australia FTW! Club.

Any Bob Marely or really any reggae/ska. The guitar is easy, will help with upstrokes and using muting effectively as well as introducing new chords and ideas. And the lyrics can be easy, but you can find all sorts of lyrics in reggae music.

glycerin (sp) by bush.
sound of settling - DCFC
bottom of everything - bright eyes (the chords version)
like a rolling stone - bob dylan (chord verison as well)

basically, try chords from bob dylan, his pitches aren't too hard to get.

my advice, songs you like with chord version o.O

In Time, by Mark Collie.

It's straight-8ths (8th notes). Well, almost. There's a few spots that are quarter notes.

It's a Dm (D minor), and G Major (G).

Find the lyrics at any lyrics site, I'm pretty sure. If not, I know for a fact that leoslyrics.com has it. L8TR.

Angry Chair - Alice In Chains
War Pigs - Black Sabbath
Seek And Destroy - Metallica
Suzy Q, Proud Mary, Bad Moon Rising - Creedence Clearwater Revival
Most Bob Dylan stuff
House of the Rising Sun - The Animals
Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

that's pretty much the only ones I can sing and play at the same time without screwing up. Of course, that's only when I'm by myself, I hate my voice. The only ones I'll sing in front of someone are the CCR ones and House of the Rising Sun, since my country accent doesn't sound too bad with them.

edit: oh yea, I can also do For Whom The Bell Tolls
#27
Yeah, Wish you were here by Pink Floyd takes you through a lot of chords but at a nice, medium pace, so it is a great starting out song.
#28
Green Day's "Brain Stew", Black Sabbath's "Iron Man", The Vines' "Ride", Nirvana's "In Bloom" (any Nirvana song is good for that), and the classic super-commercial-hard grunge anthem: Blur's "Song 2".

Number one song, Dammit by Blink 182 - the vocals match the chord changes exactly, its the simplest n best place to start.
#34
Bush - Glycerine
System of a Down - Lost in Hollywood, Aerials, plenty of others.

Pop punk/emo songs are great for singing and playing, since they're fairly simple. Some good ones are:
Good Charlotte - Emotionless , S.O.S., Hold On
Amber Pacific - Summer(In B)
The Pink Spiders - Soft Smoke, Little Razorblade
#35
Your Guardian Angel - The Red Jumpsuit Aparatus
Closing Time - Semisonic
Green Eyes - Coldplay
Anything Goo Goo Dolls
Call me Dom

I don't know how easy it is on guitar, I play bass, but try Paranoid by Black Sabbath. Especially try singing and playing rhythm.
#37
Choose a song that takes your fancy. Even it's complicated melodic guitar playing, there's usually a Chord version on this site. Play it as many times as you need to, to know it as well as the back of your hand or head or butt or whatever you know well. Then start singing.

Don't get put off by the band here; you want to learn something, and these songs will help you. They helped me a lot.
#39
Bush - Glycerine
Collective Soul - Shine
First cut is the deepest - Sheryl Crow (if you wanna get sappy for a lady friend... or guy friend as the case may be)
If I had a million dollars - Barenaked Ladies

Lol I dono, it depends on which genre u like the most, and what guitar u play (acoustic or electric).
For electric, something like Satisfaction by Rolling Stones.....I think it's easy to sing, play and it's very cool and it's one of the greatest songs of the world
