    Whatever you wish, on www.ultimate-guitar.com there are chords for almost every song, and also tabs. www.justinguitar.com is one of my favorite sites to learn some new stuff.

    For some concrete suggestions, the intro riff of Sweet child o'mine is relatively easy, up and up of Relient K is also nice. I would suggest you try to play chords for songs, with chords you can accompany every song on the go without practicing. Meanwhile listen to your own favorite music and keep an ear out for some nice riffs ;-)

    If you merely begin to play the guitar then you require the best courses available on the market to discover ways to enjoy this difficult tool and the very best is Jamorama website, here https://tr.im/W2tdC

    In the event that you will learn the guitar for the first time (Or maybe you attempted before and only couldn't get the "hang" of it), then Jamorama is the best course for you personally since every training has a video to accompany the concepts, and once you've removed via a week of lessons, you are able to acquire and print a fitness page associated with those lessons.

    The video classes demonstrate how exactly to perform chords – the fundamentals of enjoying guitar. You'll figure out how to play major, slight, 7th, and simple chords. If you do not know what any one of that means, don't allow it to discourage you. It's all discussed in detail in the videos.

    A good thing about that is after you receive these fundamentals down, the titles and the technicality only move to the backdrop and that you do not really have to consider it far more – you can just perform!

    These days you can learn how to play guitar over the internet. Check out Mark McKenzie's guitar video lessons here: http://www.jamoramaguitar.com The videos are very easy to follow and to my surprise extremely helpful even for advanced guitar players. For beginners I would have to say this is a gold mine.

    I was able to improve my skills in just under 4 weeks and I am an intermediate-to-advanced guitar player; I've been playing guitar for the past 6 years and I was on stage with my band a lot of times.

    I live in New York City, I wanted to go to a pro guitar teacher but that would have cost me over $1400 per month. Good thing with this internet, $1400 it's a lot of money for me. Good luck!

    simple/fun song!!!!!

    for acoustic: snuff from slipknot it has many changes, its fun due to the singer sings with feeling so you can really feel the song (idk if you listen to metal though) but make sure its something you can feel for your first song an its simple and basic!!!! or iris from goo goo dolls :)

    for electris id say something simple basic as well :) try asking alexandria not there new album but there older stuff like the final epsiode :) its heavy great and fun

    buttt if your not going for a metal style playing play songs in the genre that you appriciate in :) have fun, dont get discouraged guitar is very difficult have to keep fouced patient

    rock on man :)

    My first guitar song was "Yankee doodle"

    If you mean electric guitar, I learnt 1 arpeggio, a few chords and Kansas "Carry on my wayward son".

    Start with something simple like "Enter Sandman" or "Fade to Black" by Metallica. they aren't ridiculously easy like "Nothing Else Matters" or "Heart Shaped Box", but if you ever play them for people, they tend to recognize them.
