OK, I'm not asking for what styles to learn and play. I know what I like. But as a newbie I am having trouble putting together entire songs I can play. Or even extended riffs. Look, lets be honest here. I woould like to achieve some level of ability so if I am in a guitar store and see something I want to try I can do something that sounds like music. Or if someone visits my condo and says hey - play something. So far the only song I can play most of is Blackbird. Kewl enuf. I am working in SRV Pride and Joy but I don't see me getting that level of "flailing" down for a long time. I keep trying songs, get a little into it and realize I must either be a master to play the song without a rythm and bass and such. So, name some basic songs that work without backup and can be learned by the begginer to intermidiate player. Thanks people.
