Hey pit, im in need of your help.
My guitar teacher has yearly parties for his guitar students to play together in front of friends/students/family and we usually do blues jams and just easy stuff. This year we have the blues jams and sunshine of your love. We are looking for an easy song that beginner guitar players could play along with and we cant think of one.
Do you guys know of any pretty easy rock songs? We want rock because the people watching last year got bored of the monotonous blues. (not enough of the students were comfortable soloing). Please help!

Edit: The song needs to be easy for guitar and for bass

Black Sabbath - Evil Woman

+1. It is a great song too.

Anyway, my choice is Lving Loving Maid (She's Just a Woman) - Led Zeppelin.

Any Emo/Punk-pop music such as FallOutBoy, Blink182, Greenday, Sum41, +44 ect!

Say What You Will ~ Fastway

No ones heard of it, guaranteed. Yet it has an awesome riff and it's as simple as can be.

...... Yes most of it. The only ones that i can think of that arent complex are some of the heavier one and i dont think he wants to play that.

Oh. then Black Label Society has some good, easier rhythm. The solos..... not so much.
Some of the NEWER Metallica also has easier riffs.

How about some Thrash metal? It's probably the easiest to play and not too heavy.

Some Sabbath.

I'd say Original Fire by Audioslave. And you can just improv over Tom Morello's solo, it's just more of his typical DJ stuff anyway.

Some MD? Though the solo is pretty damn hard, Symphony of destruction is pretty cool.

Cochise - Audioslave
All My Life - Foo Fighters
In Bloom - Nirvana
For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica
The Small Print - Muse
House of Wolves - My Chemical Romance (you'll have to skip out on the solo or something though)
Every You, Every Me - Placebo
Fat Lip - Sum 41
Green Day - Boulevard/Holiday/American Idiot/St. Jimmy
The Pixies - Where is my Mind?
Rise Against - Prayer of the Refugee
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.
