        Start with everything on Sgt. Pepper, then move on to Revlolver or Rubber Soul.

          "Hide your love away" was the first beatles song I learned.

          and, yes, it was before Pearl Jam covered it.

              Norweigian Wood. It's a lot easier than it sounds and fun to play.

                i always find it hard to sing the bridge to that one - neither john nor paul's part by itself sounds right. gotta have that harmony

                or is it just me?

                  I had a guitar teacher that wanted me to play it for the hammerons etc, and he took pity on my natural baritone voice and taught it to me in E. It really sounds great on my 12 string and I usually do it as a solo number between sets at gigs. The crowds seem to always like it and hell they don't know it's supposed to be in D.

                      Anything on the White Album is great. For acoustic, you could try "Mother Nature's Son", "Dear Prudence", or my personal fave, "Hey Bungalow Bill."
