Top Ten Easiest Songs to Play On Guitar

This list is based solely on personal experience. Feel free to add answers.

The Top Ten

1 Lollipop - Lil Wayne

Might be a loop. He is a fake. - I80

2 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

First song I learned because I was challenged, "I bet you can't play this." I learned the whole thing in half an hour, solo and all perfectly. From my neighbour when I was only playing guitar for two weeks was just learning basic fingering at the time. - Ilovetoptens

I learned it in less then 5 minutes

"It's only got a good 3 power chords."

Easiest song ever!

3 Blitzkrieg Bop - Ramones
4 Brain Stew - Green Day

The first song you should teach anyone learning barre chords.

5 Never Surrender - Skillet
6 Deep Purple - Smoke On the Water

The riff is easy, but people clearly haven't heard the entire song.

The solo isn't the easiest thing to play. Listen to the live Made in Japan version. More challenging. Plus, I haven't seen anyone play the main riff right anyway. There isn't a plectrum used at all and the strings are grabbed and pulled out like someone is trying to ripoff the strings from the guitar. Everyone is playing it the wrong way. - Ilovetoptens

This should really be number one - Gruunge

Memorised the riff in 10 minutes - peepsmith

Easy peasy, worlds easiest riff. Probably famous for how easy it is.

7 Running to the Edge of the World - Marilyn Manson
8 Evanescence - My Immortal
9 Sabotage - Beastie Boys
10 Black Sabbath - Iron Man

Anyone who says this is easy has clearly not heard the entire song. There's a fast solo part which is...intermediate, followed by an ending solo part which is also intermediate level. Not to mention you have 3 different riffs to remember. The first riff may be easy, but the entire song is an intermediate level.

This song is way WAY harder than all of these. It is actually one of the hardest Metallica songs

38 Feel Invincible - Skillet
39 Back to You - Selena Gomez
40 The Beatles - Octopus's Garden

Learned it in one sitting.

I've seen a lot of people think they have it down no problem, yet the song has many nuances that professional guitar players can hear that beginners can't comprehend. Without significant instruction. - Ilovetoptens
