Friends tell me "Stairway to Heaven" is a 'must' for practicing. But I dunno why Mona

Just bumping this up. I'm pretty new to guitar too and would like to see what people suggest.

Walk On isn't too hard. The verse and chorus are D A G Em. Repeat. Listen to the CD to get a sense of timing.

One: The verse is Am D Fmaj7 G. Chorus is C Am Fmaj7 C.

I'm not sure why Stairway is a "must" practice. Probably because it's a classic.

Street Spirit by Radiohead is fairly easy, so I hear.
Anything by Status Quo!

All I Want Is You only takes 3 chords and is quite simple to play and sing along with. Running to Stand Still is also quite simple and a lot of fun (especially if you have a harmonica). Staring at the Sun has a few more chords but is another good one you could pick up.

One is very easy, especially if you have heard the U2/REM acoustic version, 4 chords. Also Stand By Me is a breeze.

Rock on baby!!!!!!!
