Even the solo? One of my students is learning guitar, and I told him to learn the intro to Revolution. I figured that'd be easy enough.

I can play the solos, thier not that hard

I fancy picking up an acoustic, if only to grasp some basic chords.

I'll pick up mine soon, to put chords to the melodies I have 'demoed'. The basic chords are easy, know them from years ago. Even some Beatles' songs are based on simple chords. You can learn basic chords and get a lot of fun out of that anyway...

Eleanor Rigby and Let It Be are easy and because of the chords and rhythm could be good songs to start on guitar.
Bob's Knockin' On Heaven's Door is another one (3 chords with a chance)

You can't go wrong with Knockin On Heavens door. ;) One I also played at the beginnning. If you like Floyd at all, Pigs On The Wing is a nice one to get to grips.

Trip Through Your Wires and With or Without You by U2...Infact there are many easy U2...Van Diemens land, Pride and Where The Streets Have No Name are ones that spring to mind.

Then there is Waiting In Vain - Bob Marley...A nice easy G to C

middle 8 of C to D to Bminor then C again x2

I shall shut up now!!! lol

pink floyd stuff is not that hard...the solo's are not hard, but you gotta have the feel while playing them...I think that gilmour wasn't the best technically wise...but

Just because a song is easy to play dosnt mean its not a good song. Day Tripper is pretty easy to play.

You probably hate Sheryl Crow, but If It Makes You Happy is seriously one of the easiest songs I ever learned. All of the verses are just G.
