learn other side by red hot chilli peppers.

Californication is pretty easy too.

AC/DC use the same 4 chords over and over so you could probably learn some of their songs easily. I'd suggest learning TNT, Back In Black, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, anything really. The main riffs are all usually simple and sound good (in my opinion they sound good).

Marilyn Manson - Sweet Dreams

http://ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/m/marilyn_manson/sweet_dreams_tab.htm

For the power chords you can play them as 2 string rather then 3 string chords, they sound better that way anyway. Even the main solo in this one is really easy. This is the first song I've learned all the way though (I've only been playing about a month). It sounds much more complicated then it actually is.

Plus, if you can play the main riff from this you can play the main riff to Crazy Train

A lot of Johnny Cash songs are REALLY easy to play. For example learn "I Still Miss Someone".

Chord Progression for the verses

A D E

D E A

A D E

D E A

And the chorus is just - D E A

Might not sound completely right on an electric but just put a little cowboy stutter-step strum on it and thats all. Doesnt get any easier.

How about this. The song you are having trouble learning you practice tediously until you get it right. If it is only slightly out of your range then you will get it in only a short while. If you continually go for the things that you have no problem doing then you wont really improve.

I'm not suggesting going all out in a solo but am suggesting those things you can't do, like playing three strings or more, practice.

If you are talking about you are having trouble playing power chords

E|--------|
B|--------|
G|--------|
D|--7--5--|
A|--7--5--|
E|--5--3--|

Then try barring it if you are not. Other words for the note on the 'E' string use your index finger and for the other two notes two frets higher use your ring finger or even your pinky.

I'd like to echo this. I've only been playing for just over a month myself and i'm having lessons. Seriously, don't just go for things you can already do...i've been learning 'Queens of the Stone Age - Go With The Flow' as my first song. There's some tricky techniques in it and stuff and lots of chord changes...but i've just kept doing it and doing it. I can now play the song through and i'm now working on the solo bits and getting them to sound cleaner.

Even if you just sit there and get the chord shape on the neck and then practice switching to another chord from that chord without even strumming. Just keep repeating that...it may be boring, but repetition works.
