    What format? CD? MP3? Just hit play. Just kidding.

    I think "Headmaster's Ritual" is in Open G tuning and just requires some simple barre chords/strumming/chord positions.

    There is a light that never goes out is pretty easy too. Capo at the 4th and then just open chords and F.

    I'd say 'Paint a Vulgar Picture,' 'I Won't Share You,' or 'Cemetery Gates.'

    Just thought I'd say I second this switching to bass idea - i've done the same :p
    But yeah as for smiths songs I'd say hand in glove is pretty easy really and handsome devil is ok.

    Or play the F as Fmaj7 and then there are no barre chords at all in the whole song.

    I think is "please please" and "I won't share you"... oohh "Unhappy Brithday" is easy too.

    Using simple busker chords, you can play Ask and I Won't Share You with G, Am, C and D, which I think is as easy as it gets with Smiths songs. Although Ask has an Em hidden in the bridge. But that's easy too.

    I agree with Please Please Please and There is A Light.

    Still Ill can be played rather simply. And I Want the One I Can't Have is not very difficult either.

    All can be played with basic chords.

    To not play the lead riff to Still Ill would really do the song injustice.

    Check out smithsonguitar.blogspot.com for some videos on how to play certain songs. You will have to poke around to find songs that have easy parts to play. Much of the videos here are pretty advanced but still great to check out.

    Also check youtube and search on a song you like and add in the word cover or lesson to the search box.

    Morrissey songs are much more chord based than Smiths song but there are a lot of barre chords so if you aren't comfortable with those you might find them harder to learn that you were expecting.

    For an easy song to learn, "I Know Very Well How I Got My Name".
