AC/DC songs have always been a favorite of beginner rock guitarists. Ever since their maiden release of High Voltage in 1975, the Australian band has recorded simple, riff-based rock anthems that are a whole ton of fun to play. Until Malcom Young's sad departure from the band in 2014 due to complications associated with dementia, the band featured brothers Angus (famously sporting a Gibson SG) and Malcom on guitar (lead and rhythm respectively).

AC/DC Tabs

Back in Black - from the 1980 album of the same name, this riff-based song uses string bends and simple open chords. You'll want to bone up on your palm-muting technique to play this one well.

Dirty Deeds - from the 1976 album Dirty Deeds, this title track derives its signature sound from simple open power chords. Although not essential, guitarists might consider learning the guitar solo, as it's pretty straightforward.

Highway to Hell - the title track from the 1976 album Highway to Hell keeps with the theme of the songs above - you really just need to know basic open chords to play the main riff of this one.

You Shook Me All Night Long - this one also comes from 1980's Back in Black. This one has a slightly more intricate introduction farther up on the neck, but soon we're back in familiar AC/DC territory - the main riff is based on basic open chords.
