    as a player myself i have a wide variety of suggestions.

    If you wanna go in head first I suggest CLASSICAL GAS, i think its by Mark Williams, though a well known cover by Eric Clapton exists. I warn you though, its very very tricky.

    For a new player, anything by the whitestripes makes good learning. You could the solos in Harmonic Generator (the datsuns) and they will help.

    The kings of Leon have some dcent east tracks offof Youth and Young manhood. Try these tracks. The ones off Aha Shake Heartbreak are harder so try them later.

    Incubus have some wonderful licks and tricks that you can pick up on. For a challange try Drive and Mexico.

    Oh and good tab sites are mxtabs.net and olga.net

    Thats all for now

    greenday (time of your life is very easy) or oasis are good I found. my peak was paranoid android, the 16 chord "come down...come down (or whatever it is) was a b*t*h tho!
    can u play the johnny greenwood solo at the end of the song (paranoid android) , its so hard, it took me a week to perfect it. What guitar u got?
