The easy song question is so common that I was going to put up a page with a list of easy songs links to the tab for the song. The only problem was that every version of those easy songs I found on the Internet was dead wrong. So I am going to list a few of the strumming songs from my list, but be aware that 90% of all tabs you find on the Internet are very wrong. Sometimes just wrong chords, sometimes just making an easy song way more difficult than it really is.

But here is a list to at least give you some ideas for some easier strumming type songs.

I agree with most of your list. However, I don't know how you play Ants Marching by DMB, but in my experience that is a difficult song for beginners. If played with the correct mutings Dave uses and speed it is not that easy.

one song witha really simple intro is POD - Southtwon. the first 30 seconds or so are extremely simple and if you get stuck on all your other songs, at least it will be a confidence booster.

maybe I'm steppin' over the line here...but if you're looking for easy songs just to practice strumming and singing, whip out a church hymn book full of old traditional songs. They're mostly three-chord progresions and pretty simple.

This has got to be the second most posted question on these boards, only slightly behind "Why can't I do barre chords after two days?"

surge - hide your love away was my first song also .. nice one to start with, that song.

Oh, actually, an easy ... really easy song ... try Eleanor Rigby. (beatles again) it's mostly C and Em, plus a few other simple switches.
