Hey all, my friend is wanting to learn the guitar and i was wondering if anyone could recommend some simple songs for a beginner. I've already told him a few, like the chords in the intro to sweet child of mine (D, C, G, D) and some other stuff like that, but I've run out of ideas.

If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks and rock on!
I'm dating myself with this response but (if you're into it):

"Knockin on Heaven's Door - Dylan - G-D-C
"Dead Flowers" - Stones - D-A-G-D A-D-G-D
"Bad Moon Rising" CCR - D-A-G-D G-D-A-G-D
Wonderwall (two fingers stay rooted almost the entire time!)
Thats Entertainment
Blowing in the wind

etc etc

It's three chords, I-IV-V: E, A and B; G, C and D; A, D and E...
No worries I think every Australian who plays guitar has to learn it at some point...
No Excuses - Alice In Chains (uses E shaped bar chord with bottom 2 strings open) and basically slides up and dow fret board. Check out the Guitar Pro 5 tab it's right on.
