Easiest songs to learn Rocksmith 2014?
I know the new rocksmith just came out but does anyone have an opinion on which songs are the easiest to learn for amateur guitar players?
Blitzkrieg Bop, bass. I got 100% the first time I played it in Score Attack (which was the third time I'd played it ever).
Definitely Blitzkrieg Bop.
I dunno. I think Black Magic is way easier than BB. Blitzkrieg Bop is pretty fast for a beginner, and uses a lot of four finger power/barre chords.
Out of the very few songs I've spent some time with I would say the rhythm versions of R U Mine and Brand New Kind of Blue are pretty easy and fun.
Ho Hey Lead is a pretty easy one. The song bothers me, but my daughter wanted to play it. It took her a couple days to get it down and she is just started out. It is also a good song to practice your Aminor pentatonic scale position 1,2,and 5.
I am really surprised with the absolute lack of easy songs in RS2014... I like to FC songs so I turned "Master Mode" off. In this case it is really find out which songs i FC'd - those, who have 100% Mastery in "Learn a Song".
I've been playing for a day and this and I've managed to FC 11 songs:
Boys don't cry
I can't hear you
Where is my mind
Breaking the law
Eye of the tiger
God rest ye merry gentlemen
Symphony of destruction (rythm)
... I will continue going through Learn-a-song but I'm having hard time finding an easy RS2014 song. "Blitzkrieg Bop" is two times as hard as "Go with the flow". I've played "Black Magic" for a while and I'm at 99% but it does not feel like a good beginner song... it has so much stuff in it, chord, bends, chords slides, fast-paced shifting and whatnot.
Uh..... Where are the 4 finger power/barre chords in Blitzkrieg Bop? Or am I reading this wrong? Because when I play it, it's all 2 finger chords throughout the whole song.

Obviously, if you're not used to playing rhythm on acoustic these may not be easy though...
