What are some easy songs for a beginner on electric guitar?
Try some slow rock ballads by Bon Jovi if you want to learn rhythm and solos. Bed of Roses can be a good choice because it is melodic, the rhythm is not too complex and the notes in the solos can be easily learned by ear or by tablature. You also need an effects processor or pedal where you can choose the closest distortion/overdrive settings for the guitar. If you go for the blues, try Tracy Chapman’s “Give me One Reason” before you go for BB King or Eric Clapton. You can also try Joe Satriani’s “Crying” for a really slow guitar solo. However, I find it a bit complicated for a beginner but try it anyway. You need to learn some basic blues scale and some minor and major pentatonic scales to speed up your progress.
