So I got a guitar yesterday. And i've had a year of experience and all with acoustic. It's a Telecaster. I got a line 6 amp with special effects like heavy metal and distortion. So i've been playing for hours and hours. And now I need a song to learn and play. I good rock song. SOmething that isn't too hard or too easy.

You have a heavy metal effect?? Damn, I wish I had your fancy contraptions. I have a black Gibson Les-Paul, which is pretty cool, but my amp sucks. It just has distortion, and if you turn that up at all, it starts making this annoying ringing sound. Anyways, if you want a real distorted metal song instead of that Linkin Park shit, try “Trash” by KoRn. Or maybe something by, like, Sepultura. I don't know. You can get music books with albums' worth of rock and metal at your local music store. I found some good shit in mine.
I am so happy to finally be back home

“Smoke on the water” by Deep Purple is a riff fave…

Personally I'd go for “Sunshine of your Love” by Cream. That riff is awesome, and nicely distorted at times. :)

Ah, yes. Classic. That was the first riff I ever taught myself.

I'm sure there'll be threads on this sort of thing on Ultimate Guitar:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/

As for my opinion, you could always try Iron man by Black Sabbath, pretty simple riffing up until the solo.

Ozzy, eh? I started with “Iron Man”, moved up to “Crazy Train”, and have yet to play any more Ozzy because I've been playing so much Metallica. Oh, that reminds me. “ENTER SANDMAN”!!!!!!

thanks guys.
And I've been playing iron man and crazy train, and enter sandman and smoke on the water.
I think i'll try paranoid.
And any Guns N roses songs I should learn?
Except Welcome to the jungle and sweet child o mine.
Any songs by nirvan I missed, that are good?
I know so far:
Lithium, SMells like teen spirit, breed, in bloom, come as you are, and heart shaped box.

I always found Polly fun to play, you should try that out
But really, most Nirvana is simple power chords anyway so any of their songs you like you should give a go!

Buick Mackane by T-rex.

It's very simple with a nice heavy sound. Even Guns ‘N Roses covered it in 93’ I think.

If you're ready, try “One” and “Orion” by Metallica. Those are incredibly good songs, in my opinion.

When you start feeling like a challenge, try rewriting some of the pop songs or nursery rhymes into death metal. The best metal song I ever heard was a screamcore cover of Ashley Simpson's “La La”.

I always thought that just about any song written by Bush was fun. But I always played 4 string bass, not guitar.

Why don't you get a real instrument, like a Saxophone.

No. Do not rewrite that unless you want to go to hell.

Mr. Brownstone by GNR is a GREAT one to get your fingers moving. And another more challenging one would be Plush by STP. LOTS of cool chord changes rather than the usual root/5th power chord. Round and Round by Ratt, too, if you like old pop-metal. Fairies Wear Boots by Sabbath and Fade to Black by Metallica are also more challeging as well, but not impossible if you've been playing a year or so…

Have you considered the Ballroom Blitz? It is a fun upbeat rock song, I dont know much about guitars, but it seems simple enough.
