Always With Me, Always With You is a solid choice

Satch Boogie is fun

Cliffs of Dover is a classic choice

None of these are beginner, and Always With Me... is the only one I'd put at an intermediate level, though.

It's not an easy song by ANY means, but Satch's "Always with Me..." is one of his easier tunes. "Friends" is pretty straightforward too, minus that one really fast run in the middle.
That said, if you're anything like me, you'll do a way better job playing a song you really love, than something we tell you to.

Freeway Jam by Jeff Beck is pretty easy to learn, and For the Love of God by Vai would be a show stopper if done right.
Orion by Metallica was one of the first instrumentals I learned. Still love it.
