"Rock'n'Roll" is a simple (if fast) I-IV-V, which I think is E-A-B on the album, but can be played in any key (G-C-D or A-D-E). And you can strum it almost any way you want.

Without a doubt, the easiest LZ song would be Tangerine. Give this a shot...

I also found that learning Living Loving Maid was a breeze. And if your looking for a riff, try Heartbreaker.

I've got a lot of good ideas. Trouble is... most of them suck!

Me and a friend do Kashmir by The Zeps, and we are far from being great guitar players, usually played with an heavy fuzz-distortion, so n e bum notes get lost in the haze.

Find all you need in your mind, If you take the time

There are no bum notes, only slight variations from the original. LOL Seriously though,any mistakes are just stepping stones to being a better player, just keep playing and experimenting.

Immigrant Song is pretty easy, too.

Communication Breakdown...

Heartbreaker, apart from the solo...

Except the solo Stairway isn't a hard song at all, baby i'm gonna leave you has some fast chord changes but I think you need a challenge after all.

I learned to play stairway in the first 4 months I started playing guitar.
but for the 4th chord of the intro i used a simple d chord to change fast enough...
after a while perfection will come

I learned some live acoustic versions from japan in 1993 as well. I Think there way cooler than the original.

Over the Hills and Far Away is a great beginner's song. It seems hard but it's all in the hammer ons and pull offs. There's some fast bits I didn't find it at all frustrating to learn.

Ten Year's Gone isn't too bad either and sounds nice.
