First song that comes to mind is Better Man by Pearl Jam. Can't think of many others off the top of my head, though.

I thought of another one, Karma Police by Radiohead, although I think it's all done on acoustic.

My teacher's band at school constantly play this at assemblies. I think our physics teacher always hits on chicks when singing this. Awkward times...

+1, the solo takes some time though, not that hard, a lot a bends. But also, creep by STP, thats a sweet song and not very hard, only standard chords, and picking standard chords, quite easy, very nice song.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

The only chords you'll need to know (for the Somewhere Over the Rainbow part, not the What a Wonderful World part) are these:

xx5558
C major

xx5787
G major

xx7555
A minor

xx7565
F major
(you'll play an Am7 once, which is just xx7585)

and during the vocalization, you'll play an E7 once...
xx6757

Intro:
C - D - Am - F - C - D - Am - F - Am7 - F - F

Vocalization/Verses:
C - G - F - C - F - E7 - Am - F
C - G - F - C - F - C - G - Am - F
C - G - F - C - F - C - G - Am - F
C - G - Am - F
C - G - F - C - F - C - G - Am - F

It's a great song..I couldn't find any accurate tabs for it, so I just transposed the ukelele voicings to guitar...I felt that it didn't do the song justice if it didn't have the ukelele voicings, so I tabbed those out for you.
O.S.I.
