I've only played the guitar for 8 months now, so I'd like to know what the easiest songs are. No ballads plz.

Dunno. I'm not a guitar expert. Those are the ones I tried to play :p.

Guess they know them better than me. The truth is: I'm kinda lazy. I don't bother to look for songs to play. I wait for anyone to teach me how should I play them :p

Yeah. For example: gone away, gotta get away, self-esteem, come out and play...

None of them is really hard. It's much harder to say which one of them is the easiest than actually learn how to play them...

Try with some of the before mentioned songs, you can also try Dirty Magic (very easy), Dammit i Changed Again (although it's fast it's not hard to learn), Million Miles Away.

Are you guys referring to all of the lead guitar parts as easy? I'd beg to differ. I suck, but I didn't think I was that bad...:confused:

The rhythm parts are indeed easy, though (Excluding Pretty Fly and some others).

Yeah with all this "easy" shit floating around I'd sure like to hear some MMA and TKAA intro renditions...

Can't Get My Head Around You. Try it. There are no fast palm mute parts, that's why it should be easier for beginners.

Well, that Million Miles Away intro part can be tricky... But it's duable. Tha rhytm guitar is more than easy.

self esteem must be one of their easiest songs, definitely
but, unless you're a beginner, they're mostly all easy and quick to learn

Well, it's wrong to say that The Offspring songs are easy to play, 'caus all of them isn't. But it's not to lie about that many of the song are pretty easy. The Offspring's a punk rock band, and in punk rock they use power chords which makes it pretty easy to play along with.

But they absolutely have other chords and stuff that they play, and some heavy intros, solos and other diverse riffs (like The Noose, oh man that rocks!!) which is really hard. I think everyone knows that many Offspring songs are easy to play, and that's nothing to be ashamed over, because it's punk rock! All bands use power chord (well, many). It doesn't mean that they're a bad band just because they use alot of power chord, absolutely not. I don't know too much about this stuff, but it's much used in heavy metal and so, and bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Metallica etc. are using it much?

edit:

Self Esteem is one of their biggest hits, and that's one of the easiest to play? The simple are very often the best. :D

Well....yeah...like Free? said, a song with no or very little palm muting would be best to start with...

Don't try Self Titled or Ignition just yet if your really beginning.
From Smash, the easiest are Self Esteem, Not The One, So alone, Killboy
From Ixnay, Amazed, Cool To Hate, Gone Away, Way Down The Line
From Americana: Americana, Have You Ever, No Brakes, Walla Walla
From Co1: Conspiracy Of One, Oringinal Prankster, Special Delivery, Want You Bad, Vultures
From Splinter, CCMHAY, Race Against Myself, Spare Me The Details
From RAFRAG: Pretty much all of it, except maybe some solos

To play most of them all you need to know is power chords and palm muting.
People said Million Miles Away and Pretty Fly, those 2 oddly enough are some of the hardest Offspring songs in parts for a beginner, so if you can get those 2, you'll get all my suggestions no worries

Err... what?
We Are One is definately one of the easiest offspring songs to play on your guitar. Kick Him When He's Down is also quite simple. Dirty Magic is very easy.

You couldn't've thought that I was talking about rythm guitar portion of the MMA intro..

No, i'm just saying that the whole rhytm guitar part of the song is easy. Lead guitar is a bit more tricky, but still duable (although it takes a bit more time to learn it). I knew what you meant in your post.

However, i didn't think about palm muting (after seing other comments about MMA), maybe it could be a bit harder for a beginner (i didn't have much problem with palm muting, i learned it practically as soon as i got my first guitar).

Yeah, palm muting came very easy to me. I had been playing 2 and some years before I even learned how, heh. Fast palm muting might be what they're referring to. That can be tricky for anyone. Hell, I still can't get that intro to MMA down...

Yeah, faster palm muting takes more time to learn (but i still learned it in about 2 days).

Well, i can play that intro, and that's important for me, because MMA is one of the songs that my band would play when we practice... Maybe we'll record a cover, who knows :D
