If your just starting to read, I'd suggest you start at something simple. Find a fake book (remember google is your friend), the real-books are probably the best ones.

I've also been using some learn piano books. These books mostly contain simple melodies which can be played pretty easily on guitar or whatever you play. I sort of like the weird kiddies piano books, interesting tunes and mine even comes with little pictures

If those tunes get too easy, theres some classical sheet music here: http://imslp.org . I'd suggest you just play the highest voice (thats the melody written the highest) in those songs. Heres another link: http://www.gutenberg.org/browse/categories/4

I've also found some video game sheet music here: http://www.gamemusicthemes.com/sheets.php?console=all . Some of its easy, some of its hard. Once again, only play the highest voice if your a beginner.

I havent found any rock sheet music as I've never looked (why would I? its pretty easy to transcribe), but you could probably find some if you searched enough torrent sites.

Also, as a last resort, you can download some guitar pro tabs, buy guitarpro and hide the tablature

Now, seeing as I was nice enough to list all my classical sheet music sources, can someone please give me a link to jazz sheet music thats already been arranged for an orchestra? I've looked and come up with nothing...

I know you can get loads of classical sheet music on wikipedia, but you have to know what your looking for.
