    I have just started to learn to play guitar... i have had my guitar for 2 and half years.. and have just been bothered to start to learn...

    Does one know any easy songs to play? Preferablly metal songs.. i can play the intro the Enter Sandman by Metallica.. but i think everyone can.

    Please name an easy song.. and maybe a link to the tabs.

    Thanks

    try Deep Purple. it's easy and it's fun to do. I guess I couldn't call this metal but you can try any White Stripes song as well.

    Rage Against The Machine & Green Day have some heavier riffs that are fun to play..
    Trust me, your skill level is about as far as I got with guitar. :lol:

    Try some simple songs that aren't in drop tunings, because trust me, trying to learn songs by bands like SOAD, LP, Disturbed, etc., that drop-tune their guitars when you're just starting playing is just gonna screw up your technique.

    AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Nirvana (most songs), Beatles, Rolling Stones, most of their songs are based off simple patterns of 2 to 4 chords.

    A really easy and cool sounding song is System of a Downs Prison Song. Also, A place for my head is pretty easy too.

    Some fun songs to play...

    Foo Fighters - Everlong (accoustic version is VERY fun)
    Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit (I mean, come on)
    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under The Bridge (I can amuse myself for long periods of time just playing the intro)

    And I mean, EVERYONE knows Deep Purple - Smoke On The Water. Even if you don't know guitar, you can play it. =]

    Pantera's Strength Beyond Strength-it's really easy only if you can play fast and can cover up mistakes with distortion.
