What could you consider an easy song that a beginner could play in its entirety?

I mean, just so when I wanna show off my playing to my coworkers; I have more than just a short sequence of notes here and there.

Fade to Black, Orion, The Trooper, The Number of the Beast, all pretty easy songs.

Check out www.freelicks.net, there's a bunch of good things there.


Edit: Link fixed! Sorry about that guys!

Those all seem like tough songs. I actually meant for someone who has only been playing for about 2 months. Or do you think I should be able to play those?

theres no way a beginner of 2 months could play the FULL sweet child o'mine song, that solo isn't easy lol..stairway to heaven would probably put up a really big challenge for him as well.


EDIT:i didnt mean they were impossible, but i just meant that i highly doubt he could play those entire songs, if anybody misunderstood.and my suggestion would be Set it Off by Audioslave, it can be found on freelicks.net

www.freelicks.net is excellent.

www.freelicks.com seems to direct you to a entirely different type of lick...
