Well if you want an easy song I would recommend "Sunshine of your love" by Cream (this is good finger exercise for beginners).

Metal, should kick you in the nuts, after you catch it messing around with your girlfriend.
and then make a sandwhich in your house and walk out.

I would highly recommend that you give Fear the Dark by Iron Maiden a try... at least the intro and the chorus parts. They are VERY easy and it sounds very badass ! Also there are a lot of youtube videos on the correct fingering if your having trouble.

In my case, it worked out that YEARS ago my guitar instructor would ask me to bring in recordings of songs for which there was an interest on my part to learn to play. This happened on cassette - before CDs EVER appeared on the market. It was just a matter of watching him learn the bass lines to the songs, and then figuring out the chords from the base lines and the fingering from the chords.

After a while of watching HIM do it over-and-over again for a year or so, it dawned on me that it was easier for me to learn the songs on my own! My parents would pay the the guy ten or 15 dollars for a half-hour lesson. Just keep your wrist as low as possible, and you will be fine!

My suggestion would be to take the lessons for a month, see if you are getting better at playing the thing as the month progesses. Then set a goal for three months. Then set another goal of six months. Learning on an accoustic is MUCH more difficult than learning on an electric, but it is the better option because you will ALWAYS be able to play the electric if you LEARN on the acoustic. Learning on the acoustic keeps you honest!

Epiphany by Staind (acoustic)
I am the highway by Audioslave
Kryptonite by 3 Doors Down
Be Like That by 3 Doors Down

just a few that I learned when I was first starting out. Learn a few easy songs, but the key to getting better is really pushing yourself once you understand the basics. Learn more challenging songs more often. I try to learn one song every day, or every couple days.
