  1. i want to learn some new songs.. :D so what's you top 3 favorite songs to play on guitar? electric or acoustic.

    mine would have to be

    catfish blues - jimi hendrix
    no such thing - john mayer
    voodoo chile (slight return) - jimi hendrix
  2. under the bridge

    Anything peppers really.
  3. yeah dude chili peppers are always classic
  4. this song :)

    i cant actually play a guitar lol.
  5. haha i'll learn it just for you
  6. 12 Bar Blues in E w/improvisation on the licks and plenty of ego-masturbation

    The relaxing Island Song I made up. Might as well be called chromatic madness
    Da da-da-da da da da daaaa (insert fill) She's a beaut.:cool:
  7. Mother by Pink Floyd was the very first song I ever learned.

    Raining Blood is pretty fun, so is Eaten by Bloodbath.

    I mostly play metal and blues, but this song.. beats all other songs on the funfactor

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kTmnmBEpZQ&feature=related]YouTube - The White Stripes - Screwdriver[/ame]

    It's easy as shit, but it gets suck in your head forever to where you just have to play it.
  8. I don't know what level you are at, but these are my favorites

    Wish you were here - Pink floyd
    The first solo gets me every time... so great. A must-know for every guitarist, provided you enjoy that kind of music :D

    Little Wing - Jimi Hendrix
    This one gives me chills every time I hear it. Honestly though, I prefer the Stevie Ray Vaughan version
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAG-kX_IlUw]YouTube - Stevie Ray Vaughan Little Wing[/ame]

    (Speaking of SRV, check out Scuttle Buttin' if you like the blues :cool: )

    Say it ain't so - Weezer
    First song I ever learned :)

  9. Hells yes. Except I play mostly open tunings.

    Favourite songs to play tho, hmm..

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjZCtMg_j04]YouTube - George Thorogood - Ride on Josephine (with lyrics)[/ame]

    and of course..

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjuP0SWqUR0]YouTube - Bob Marley - No Woman No Cry (version rare)[/ame]
  10. yeah wish you were here the first solo was the first thing i ever learned on guitar :cool:

    and yeah i can play the intro to little wing and the jimi's solo but never really learned more than that.. and yeah SRV's version is better in terms of guitar but little wing is a love ballad and just isn't the same without the vocals IMO.

    and i forgot about scuttle buttin.. i'll look into that todya..
  11. ten years gone - led zep
    wish you were here
    hey joe
    bring it on home (intro) - led zep
  12. I'm an acoustic guy here so my top 3 are:
    In an Aeroplane Over the Sea- NMH
    Sleeping sickness- City and Colour
    A boy, A girl and a Graveyard- Jeremy Messersmith

    And of course:
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80DtQD5BQ_A]YouTube - Tenacious D: Master Exploder[/ame]

    It's so fuuuuun :metal: :yay::hello::hello: :metal:
  13. How could I forget Knockin' on Heavens Door?

    Play it with 8th-note arppeggios until the first chorus then I play the chords.
    The whole song is just G D am G D C repeated so ya gotta add some lightning-fast fills. Then just sing it in a Bob Dylan-Axl Rose Hyrbrid and it's wild.

    Other current favorites for guitar/singing:
    Ziggy Stardust
    Rock N Roll Suicide
    Five Years
