I'm new to guitar and I was wondering, what is a good song to learn first?

The first song I learned to play and sing was Tangled up in Blue by Dylan. Also stuff by Neil Young is usually fairly easy to pick up, and fun to play. I learned alot at the begining just by strumming through the changes of alot of Dead songs like Ripple of FOTD. Good luck Bro!

a ton of Dylan, Not Fade Away, Franklin's TOwer, chords for I Know You Rider, andything with minimal chord changes and none that are too complex. 1-4-5 stuff is easy and good to learn

HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN!

classic folk song, usually played with nice slow strums (helps if you are, as most beginners, slow with chord changes)

I agree with house of the rising sun...very fun song to play although it is a little long. But that could be a good thing for a beginner.
