Probably one of the first riffs I learned on guitar each to their own I guess



I still can't play neither Starlight or Supermassive properly In addition, I don't think that Panic Station would be easy for a beginner: the solo pattern is a bit of a bitch imho.
But Hysteria is easy in relation? Agreed about KoC, that song isn't too hard, the hardest part is the picking just before the final riff. Supermassive is easy except for the solo, but that's just effects anyway.

And when I see 'easy' in this thread, I don't mean for anyone, I mean for a reasonably experienced guitar player in the first place.

And don't start on the acoustic in my opinion, electric guitars have more forgiving strings and thinner necks generally, they don't hurt your fingers as fast before you get the chance to build up callouses. Having said that, spanish/nylon acoustics are good for beginners, they're easier on the fingers.

Dead Star's easy if you don't play the slapback delay stuff in the verses. Apart from that, I'd say Bliss, Sing For Absolution or Hysteria like other people have said.

But that's exactly why anyone should start on an acoustic, it trains your finger a lot more.

That's an equally valid point I suppose.

Trains your finger...? It obviously gets you pads on your fingers quicker but how does it train your fingers any better or different than on any other guitar?

On average harder to play.

I guess, for licks and stuff. I reckon nylon acoustics are the best way to start though

It just makes your fingers stronger and as the neck is wider, it kind of stretches the space between your fingers, making it easier to reach bigger spaces between notes. The strings are thicker as well, which requires you to press strings with more force: so when transitioning from acoustic to electric, the whole pressing strings part is more natural.

Basically it depends on what you're willing to try. I've not really bothered with CE cos I'm awful at harmonics but yeah for standard tuning:

Supermassive Blackhole
Starlight
Sing For Absolution (especially the solo)
Fury is super easy
Exo-Politics is quite easy too as someone else mentioned
Hysteria's fine if you're happy playing it really slowly to start off with
Panic Station

And Drop D if you're willing to mess with the tuning a bit:
Dead Star
Yes Please
Uprising

and you can get away with playing Supremacy in standard tuning without it sounding awful too

I agree, but you could argue it may put someone off playing altogether because it is generally harder, whereas starting with an electric may provide more of an incentive to continue, as it's a smoother, more gentle beginning to playing.

I guess it depends on how interested/dedicated you are. I lost myself completely into guitar on my first day. My fingertips were shredded. Yeah, electric is easier to pick up, but I think that you have to go through some tough shit to get good.
