My little brother is 8, and has a guitar. I've taught him Seven Nation Army(w/o power chords) and Smoke on the Water. What are some other non-chord, extremely easy songs? I'd do Iron Man, but I don't have a recording of it for him to listen to. He pretty much likes the stuff I do, as I'm his big bro, and that would be Hendrix, Zep, Gn'R (I try to get him to not listen to this, he likes to get the lyrics, and lots of the songs are dirty). Basicly, classic or modern rock.

A little bit of a deviation from what you like, but songs like Fat Lip and The Hell Song by Sum 41.... VERY VERY EAsy songs, though good for beginners.

Yes. When the shield generator on Endor has been deactivated, Rogue Squadron is easily able to enter the Death Star II without repurcussions.

...And that's how menstruation works.

No power chords please, he can get the shape, but its hard for him to maintain or move it.

The solution would be to practice them.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

the Metallica - Nothing Else Matters intro... can't possibly find anything easier than that.

The main riff to Sunshine of Your Love.

Metalheads are the worst thing that ever happened to metal.

play powerchord songs, but use the root note instead of the full chord.

If he practices playing power chords, he will be able to maintain and move them. My suggestion? Help him practice playing power chords. Here are some songs to work with:

In Bloom - Nirvana
Junkhead - Alice in Chains
Iron Man - Black Sabbath
Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin
Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple
Man on the Silver Mountain - Rainbow
Outshined - Soundgarden (tuned to Drop D, even easier)

That's what I can suggest off the top of my head ...it's certainly enough to get the ball rolling. And he can just play the roots if he wants to, but where is the fun in that?

Sunshine of your Love is what I thought of myself, just earlier today, and yes, in a week or so, I'll have him start practicing power chords.

Learn basslines to songs, maybe.

Otherside by RHCP is a good one too.

Black Sabbath-Black Sabbath.

Three notes. That is all.
