Is it just me.......

... or is playing Rolling Stones tunes a blast? I play mostly in the time honored position that tutors just love, that being laid out on a recliner. Whenever I do a stones tune, that chair just starts rockin.

Well i have never heard of rolling stones.

I am sure they are good.I never used to listen to beatles earlier and wondered why they are adored so much , but , as i have started listening to the 'fab four' i am getting deeply into beatlemania !.

So please suggest your top ten stones songs which you will listen any time , any day. :D

"It's Only Rock-n-Roll" by the Rolling Stones is a classic rocker. I can't say if it's easy to play as I'm still a beginner.

Top 10 Stones songs. Hmmmm.

Well, best thing is try to find samples in Yahoo music or something for the 40 licks cd.

The ones that I'm playing these days are Gimme Shelter, Brown Sugar, Start Me Up, Sister Morphine, Honky Tonk Woman, You Can't Always Get What You Want, Happy, Thru and Thru, Rocks Off, Sympathy For The Devil and trying to learn Angie. I'm sure there are a couple more, but my aged mind can't remember things.....

For KISS?

Try:
Detroit Rock City
Beth
Strutter
Deuce
Parasite
Cold Gin

Now to decide which Rolling Stones song to learn.

:D
