    What was your first VH song you can play on guitar?

    What was your first VH song that you can play thoroughly on guitar? What other songs can you play on guitar?
    Myself, I've been playing 6+ years, and I've noodled around on trying to play VH songs. After purchasing music sheets, VHS tapes, DVD's, and even PC programs (with videos), lol, I learned how to play "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" from beginning to end! I've been meaning to learn more tunes, but I only have bits and pieces from other songs, such as "Mean Street". I'd LOVE to learn how to play "Unchained", but it's SO DIFFICULT!!! ATBL became simple, once I got it. I can't say the same for any other VH song (that I've tried). What are some easy VH songs to learn to play? Were any songs easy for you, at first, or after a while?
    What songs can you guys play?

    Have you tried http://www.jfrocks2.com/. he has a good selection of =VH= songs broken down and made easy with videos. I was so happy when he tabbed out humans being practically note for note, a tear ran from my glassy eye. Jeff rules!

    Panama + ATBL were the first VH songs i learned all the way through. Seventh seal and Don't tell me are my fave's to play. Check out jeffs website, he's got these down perfectly aswell.

    Good luck

    The first songs I learned on guitar all the way through was Runnin' With The Devil and 316. I can pretty much play any VH song now.

    You Really Got Me, but they didn't write that.

    As for their originals, if I remember right it was Get Up off of 5150.
