    Here are the list of some easy beginner songs that helped me to learn some basics of finger picking (i dont know if this is the right term)...

    But, basically what I am talking about is holding a chord and then plucking strings (with your fingers, not using a pick) not necessarily in order... even can pick two/three strings at a time...

    Easy ones:

    Dust in the wind - Kansas

    Landslide - Fleetwood Mac
    http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/f/fleetwood_mac/landslide_tab.htm

    Time in a bottle - Jim Croce

    I found it comparatively hard... its got some barre chords to hold on... The intro is easy but it gets fairly complex... ( i mean the solo):)

    PS - this is just in my opinion to give an idea... some ppl found "very hard" songs easy and easy songs hard. So, dont bash around ... its just a matter of how good you are and how much you practice...

    @Crptic...
    Thank you :) ... I have moved stairway to "easy" section. I just seperated the songs because it helps you in learning. Afterall, its all relative :p: If you're good then its easy :) but honestly, I tried my ass off at stairway to heaven .... that was when I was not good with barres ;) ..

    @slash - I will add it after I try playing it :) ...thanks for mentioning !
    Edit: which song are you talking about ? Can you please give me a link to the tab ?

    @Guitar_guru ... yeah, i love that song especially when it gets pumped up ! ... thank you :)

    ^^ I guess its all relative. Cryptic_angel called it "Easy" but I think its easy to play the first part, but hard to master the whole song :p: ...

    I found it pretty hard too :) ..so dont worry.. :p:
