Been a while, but I think it was either Blackbird by The Beatles or Dust in the Wind by Kansas.

I believe my first song was Pull my Strings by Dead Kennedys. That solo wasn't tabbed... so I spent like 4 hours replaying the solo till I figured out each note by ear. I doubt many people here have even heard the band let alone the song, but it has a neat history and was recorded once only as a live prank at an award show.

i actually learnt the first part of ONE by metallica on a right handed guitar cause i was too impatient to wait for my first left hander at CHRISTMAS, but then the first thing i learnt on the LEFT HANDED guitar, was enter sandman, haha oh yeah, and smoke on the water. I didn't find this site at first so i wasn't aware of all the real simply vg tunes available, OH WELL.

oh yeah since is my first post i feel i should say HI or somethign, so yeah HI! ;)

Brain Stew (super easy but catchy, I'd recommend this as any beginner's first song)

Also the intro riff to There's No Penguins in Alaska by Chiodos and Somewhere on Fullerton by Allister were other early ones.

it was a really crappy monkey island transcription. Dont know if I found it here or somewhere else, but if it was here it probably got deleted since I cant find it now.

My first songs on guitar are whatever crap was in the first pages of the Hal Leonard guitar method 22 years ago ^-^;

That, and "My Dog Has Fleas" @_@

The first real song I learned on my own was on viola, I think. . . . the theme to Gilligan's Island. :-D Yay grade school!

Does Hal Leonard have a fingerstyle tab of Hey There Delilah? If so, I must have. Hey There Delilah holds a special place in my heart. Don't judge.

It's been long enough ago that I don't remember my first song. Probably just chords.

First fingerpicking song -- More than a Feeling, by Boston, 1999

First song with a barre chord -- Proud Mary, by Credence Clearwater Revival, 1999

First instrumental piece -- Bron Yr Aur, by Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), 2001

First classical piece -- Andecy by Andrew York, 2003

First video game music -- Mario Theme, just the melody


And then I realized that the chord progression from Chrono Cross's Another World is the same progression as the chorus from Peace of Mind by Boston, and life was never quite the same.

Iron Man - Black Sabbath

Iron Man (not just the single-note riff). Pretty cliché, I know, but it was the first Sabbath song I listened to and I immediately felt like I should learn how to play guitar and play that song. The first solo gave me quite the rough time back then...
