If you can break into Steve's house and steal his harmonizer, you could learn Yai Yai and Ballerina 12/24.

Gentle Ways, Light Of The Moon, All About Eve

That should keep you busy :-)

Only if you have a floyd rose.

Where's "Light Of The Moon" from? I don't recognise it.

And of course, if you're counting songs with vocals, most of Sex and Religion (minus the guitar solos). In fact there's a long bit in Down Deep into the Pain with no guitar. That's very easy to play.

Little Green Men, The Boy/Girl song.

And the Attitude song isn't as hard as it looks.

thank you all. i will investigate those songs and try one of them.

By the way "sisters" is a bit difficult but with concentration i succeed to play it but at 90% of the real time and minus the artificiel harmonics that i dont master yet.

i love that song - a bit jazzy and bluesy

The Crying Machine isn't too bad....Your question is kinda like asking "Where can I buy a cheap 2009 Lambourghini?" :lol:

I should just stick to my drums instead of sucking really bad on guitar and bass.

Can't I just do like that one Metallica album, stay in the key of E all day and just pump the open E string all day long?
Question wasn`t :"What`s the easiest song in the world?", it was:"Which are easiest Vai`s songs?"...

The Crying Machine was the only song that I was able to get down in one day.
