so one of my friends' younger brothers wants me to teach him how to play something(so far he suggested Say Hello to Heaven-Temple of the Dog, and Everlong. i tried talking him out of everlong) for a school talent show. he has a band but i think he's the only guitarist. so i need suggestions for a good easy song by a band with one guitarist
thanks

What's so difficult about Everlong? That's really simple...

But anyway, most Nirvana songs fit the bill.
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.


Confused? Good.

Well, I'd love to claim I'm more talented than you, and I probably am, but it only requires 2 fingers when I play it, so...

Smells like teen spirit. Nirvana. That was one of the first songs my friends learnt when he was new to guitar.

...It does. You're supposed to tune the 6th string down a step to D. It's only difficult when people stupidly try to play it in standard tuning, which I'm assuming is your problem. Even then, it's not particularly challenging (if you exclude trying to hit the D note at the beginning of the verse riff, which is physically impossible in standard).
