Re: Your first REAL song...
Hmm...let's step into the way-back machine...
Probably "Tall Cool Woman in a Black Dress" by the Hollies; which I learned circa 1982. Still love that reverb-drenched intro riff. That's probably the first song I learned to play from start to finish. Also, anything I could copy from my parents collection of "old" LP's (which ranged from '50's standards to the Beatles all the way up to Abba, ELO, and the Bee Gees...remember, they weren't, strictly speaking, a disco band...)
After that, lots of AC/DC, of course, and then immediately into the '80's hair band thing. Followed by stabs at Yngwie, obsessions with Satch and Vai, and so on.
