Easiest song to learn on guitar for beginner?

I'm just learning guitar on my own, and I was wondering if anyone new the easiest U2 song to learn for a beginner?

I sometimes have a hard time playing cause my hands are a bet small to play guitar

If you know of any songs that would be easy for me to learn let me know or if just have tips.

Sunday Bloody Sunday is really easy. Both to play and effect wise.

I Heard that With or With out you was pretty good for beginners? I believe in a video I found recently Edge said " this is one of the easiest U2 songs to play". But I'm not sure, I'm just learning. I only know a couple chords right now, C, D, Em, G, and I believe Am.

I'll look at Sunday Blood Sunday.

I have an electric acoustic right now, I have to get better before I jump to an regular electric.

It so different jumping from Violin to guitar. lol

uh WOWY is VERY hard to do effect wise. It's the easiest song in the world on bass though.

Vertigo is really easy too.

With the chords you already know, just learn Fmaj7 and you can do a nice acoustic version of "One." Good luck

Hi Floweravalanche,

do I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For. its main riff its very simple you just have to stretch out your fingers a bit thats all.

e--------------------------4---
b----------5--5---5--5---------
g-------2-------2-------2-----

Then do that around 4 times and it comes the song, if you go up one fret it will sound different, if you slide it four frets down in that position it will sound like rattle and hum.

Awesome Gale Thanks

I found the Tabs to Boots and pretty much the first part down, just have to keep practicing to get on the right beat, but I'm slowly learning it. Was shocked I even got that for being the first time reading tabs
