Well "Goat" would be the easiest, but as for official Pearl Jam tunes, no doubt, "Not For You" is their easiest song to play on guitar. The majority of the song is one chord shape. You can get a non-guitar player to play this song in about five minutes.
"Wishlist" would have to be their second easiest song to play on guitar.

Welcome to the board :)

Thanks.

I used to love trying to figure out Pearl Jam songs on guitar. When you get one it really was a rush. Back in the stone age before internet and guitar tabs, you really had to work hard to figure out what they were doing. A live performance on TV was like a gift from God. "Oh, so that's where he is putting his hands on the guitar."

Epitomizes Pearl Jam's sneer that is now history.


That's probably a good thing. 50 year old men shouldn't sound like angry 30 year olds sounding like angry 25 year olds. The important thing is that it sounded so amazing and we have it

I completely agree with that. Some bands (eg Bad Religion) manage to preserve certain creative and attitudinal elements without the characterization of immature. I think Yield was the first accurate analogy between age and artistic age as a total. Yet since Backspacer we are witnessing dotard 50 year old men.

Cheesy lyrics and message made great by Eddie's passion, energy, intensity, delivery, and amazing music

In Mikejasonda's defense, Pearl Jam are pretty fucking cheesy in general

I dont think everything's cheesy but Eddie does tend to be hit and miss with his lyrics.

"Wishlist" is definitely easier than "Elderly Woman"

As a beginner, I had the hardest time making an f chord. That is why I said it's harder than Elderly Woman.
