The first whole song, start to finish note for note-ish would have been livin' lovin maid.

Before that I learned the main parts of 'Living after Midnight', 'Breaking the Law' and 'Love Bites'. Lots of little riffs from Iron Maiden songs in there as well.

The next full song would have been Black Dog as I took guitar lessons at Ken Davidson's Music in Bedford NS, and that was the song the teacher taught us.

WOW.................. I learned almost the same tunes as you! Living after Midnight was the first song I learned the solo in. Not much of a solo, but still my first. I think I was 14 or so years old.

Besides stuff like "Mary Had a Little Lamb', I used to figure out some simplier music I was into at the time. Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, stuff like that.
