*warned*
Try and be helpful or don't bother posting in this forum, please.

Depends what you like listening to, I always think it's better to learn the songs that you want to play, rather than what someone else might think is easy.

That being said, here are some of the first songs I remember learning, and some that I think are suitable for beginners. I've tried to list songs that use the chords you've probably learned.

Hotel Yorba - White Stripes
Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Bob Dylan
By The Rivers of Babylon - Sublime (Boney M cover)
Truth Doesn't Make a Noise - White Stripes
Minority - Green Day
Teen Spirit - Nirvana

This is the wrong forum. I'm sure there's a thread on this in Guitar and Bass basics. But Californication is a good one, as is Smoke on the Water (The whole song, not just the main riff), and possibly Iron Man (If you can pull off the solo). Happy jamming!
It all makes sense

Well I'm not sure if you like these bands, but this songs the the ones that i've learned during my first weeks or playing.

The White Stripes - Seven Nation Army
All American Rejects - Paper Heart
311 - Amber
Green Day - Wake Me Up When September Ends
Fall Out Boy - Any.


A nice one, and a classic that i've just learned today is Wonderwall by Oasis.

Good luck.
