    They're in the rhythm arrangement of the song.

    Ahhh...that explains it. I guess I haven't tried the lead then. I was like "why do people keep saying this is the easiest song?". I thought something must be wrong with me. lol

    Blitzkrieg Bop and X-Kid are good beginner songs.

    If you can import songs from RS1, just play Gobbledi**** from Sigur Rós, is not so popular but is the easiest of all. Only one string in all song.

    For Bass

    Hey Ho - the lumineers
    Pour some sugar on me - Def Leppard
    The Sky is crying. (Forgot the artist.

    arguably that Stevie wonder song, although the slide in the beginning and the fret hand mutes can screw you over a bit.

    I find that Blitzkrieg pop and Black magic are a bit too fast for a beginner.

    I didn't find either of those that easy. RU Mine Requires a lot of navigation up and down the neck and Brand New kind of blue has some pretty tricky single note picking.

    I suppose "easiest" will vary a bit, depending on which techniques you are able to master.

    As for me, I never touched a guitar before picking up RS2014 in early January. These are the songs that I have made the most progress in:

    97.7% "Next Girl" - The Black Keys (Lead). A lot of repeating phrases. Whole song is played on 3 strings, at 3 frets.
    94.9% "Blitzkreig Bop" - The Ramones (Lead). 3 strings, 4 chords. Moves quick, though. Had to move away from this until my strumming/fretting improved.
    94.5% "Go With the Flow" - Queens of the Stone Age (Rhythm). 3 strings, 4 chords once again. Also very quick, but with very little variation.
    87.9% "Six AM Salvation" - Versus Them (Rhythm). Not all that easy, but I really enjoy the song, and have put a lot of work into it.
    82% "Angela" - Jarvis Cocker (Lead). A lot of repetition on single notes. I could probably get this one in the high 90s if I worked at it for an hour.
    81.7% "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" - Rollong Stones (Lead). This one just seemed to click for me.
    81.7% "A More Perfect Union" - Titus Andronicus (Rhythm). Another not too easy song that I've put a lot of work into.

    As I look at that list, I realize that all but one of them are imports from the original Rocksmith. Maybe RS2014 simply has more difficult songs?

    There are probably a few more that are easier, but I haven't made as much progress on, due to not playing them much.

    If you have the original Rocksmith and the 2014 check out the rhythym path for David Bowie - Rebel Rebel, 3 chords, easy strum pattern, perfect beginner song.

    I got to 105% playing "Next Girl" in only six times playing it through. Easiest song I've learned playing the game.
