i was wondering if anyone has found an easy song that a new guitarist could learn easily that is a pretty recent song preferably that is pop rock. thanks.
The first song I ever learned on guitar was 'Heart of Gold' by Neil Young.
dammit by blink 182 was the first one i learned.

blackbird by the beatles

or any other blink really.
reptilia by the strokes i found kinda easy... i mean it needs practice and some tweaking cause the tabs here missed some palm mutes and bends. S.O.S. by the jonas brothers is pop and dude in one sitting i tabbed it myself so it should be easy. exo-politics by muse. but yah of the top of my head these are it..... sometimes you equipment can help what kind a guitar you have cause the necks can make certain songs easier or harder
Love Like Winter by AFI, real easy.

@pwrmax, lol, nice sig

Yes, it isn't the hardest song in the world, but it's definitely not suitable for a beginner.

I suggest stuff like Californication by Red Hot Chili Peppers, and other simple songs.
stairway to heaven is easy if you don't play the chords
Just remember, at the end of the game, the king and the pawn go in the same box
Go whith some punk id say,some Ramones ore The Misfits,then some Nirvana.
Ore maybe some Bob Dylan.

Bob Dylan
-Knocking on Heveans Door

-Blitzkrieg Bop

The Misfits
-We Are 138

-About a Girl

but yet again nothing is easy when you first start out=/

My hamster used to bite me when I picked it up, then it got too old and fat to bite and died in a pool of it's own vomit.

You should learn something like Gay Bar by Electric Six. Great song that most people will recognise.
