Yes I know this has been made many times before but none of them have the same music taste as me so it wasnt helpful at all. I like classic rock and heavy metal, and almost everything in between, such as Prog Rock. So like late 60s to the early 90s. Please no metallica or other bands like them. I can't stand 'em. When I say heavy metal, I mean like 80s hairmetal like Def Leppard, Slaughter, and stuff. Thank you in advance

Edit: I lso like some alternative like Red Chili Peppers and Radiohead but I dont know many songs by either of them and not many other alternative bands

I remember this one time - Jesus played Eruption on a lute with strings made from the hair of 23 virgins.

It was pretty hardcore.

wanted dead or alive - bon jovi
she talks to angels - black crowes (very easy)

to be honest not a lot of hair metal is easy - that said, listen for the ones with arpeggios and alternate tuning, especially alternate tuning. The trick there is that it sounds different, therefore hard, but the setup does a lot of the work for you. Classic example she talks to angels, in open E tuning.

Ha

Also, I would rather if it were in standard tuning SZ320man because my guitar has a floyd rose which is setup for standard tuning

Snow (Hey Oh). It'll take a while to get it up to tempo, but it's not that hard.
And Under The Bridge.
Also most Radiohead stuff from In Rainbows isn't that hard. Start with 15 step. It's pretty awesome.

Try "Unchained" by Van Halen. Some of the rhythm bits are a little complex, but the basic melody of the verse isn't too tough, and the rest will come with practice.

If you aren't adverse to fingerpicking, there's Blackbird by The Beatles.

Try Wasted by Def Leppard (from On Through the Night, before they got all cheesy)

Rock You Like a Hurricane by The Scorpions, the basic melody isn't too tough (though playing it like the CD is)

Symptom of the Universe by Heaven and Hell

Cars by The Cars is a fun one and generally impresses people, it's also a great one to have fun with and be creative.

Hope those help

the intro to the trooper by iron maiden. the part played on the high strings sounds cool and isn't really complicated.

Classical Gas. It's instrumental but imo that just makes it more awesome.
Dust In The Wind by Kansas.

Both are fingerpicking though.

Under the Bridge is not really easy if it is played correctly. The hammer-ons and pull-offs are pretty fast if you're looking for an easy song. It can be played without them too though, I guess.

It seems as though you've got enough suggestions to keep you busy for a couple months, if you want to play them right anyway.

If you're looking for particular things, check out "the beginner's song program" thread at the top of this forum. There are tons of suggested songs on that page, you're sure to find a few that are right up your alley.

Victor Wooten is a bass player, a slap and pop jazzer that is really amazing, his brother Reggie Wooten is a slap guitarist, and extremely crazy. As for "Under the Bridge". The song is pretty easy, and that's why you have to practice, it isn't that lucrative or anything, people just like to place Frusciante on a pedastal.

i must be crazy! the intro to under the bridge is fairly simple, and so is the first verse. it only starts getting complicated in the second and third verse. As for the chorus, bridge and outro they are also fairly easy to get the hang of.

so what is it about this song that people make it out to be 'impossible to play.' Its understandable if the song is played accurately on an acoustic. But on an electric it should be no problem with a bit of practice.

can someone explain to me why people consider this a challenging song to play?

Quote by Scruffy77
yea theres no way in hell the correct version of under the bridge is easy


my favorite easy song to play is The Calling - Wherever you will go

much easier than it looks


really!? favourite easy song? i dunno ... its kind of a gay song. Not that theres anything wrong with that. I mean i play this song a lot too even though i hate it. But the only reason i play it is to help me get better with alternate picking. I tend to avoid playing this song in front of friends though .... out of fear of getting the shit kicked out of me.
