OK, if your heart was just torn out of your chest and you wanted to bury yourself in playing, what songs would you learn or play?

Speak out, everyone has been hurt.

holy crap, I have just deja vue this post. I can't seem to find the outcome.

Sorry about your sad story, Sid.

Write about your feelings and how this has effected you. I bet you'll kick out some serious ballads.

Hope the fog clears for you soon!!!

Sid,

I had a similar situation with my girlfriend at the same time I started playing guitar. She left me after living together for 5 years and moved down south.

She ended up meeting another guy blah blah blah. Anyway I found this very simple song by a band called Shellac, it's called "Prayer to God" and I just cranked my amp up and played that for days. Matter of fact I still do.

It's not for the faint of heart as it has some f word lyrics but man that helped me get the pain out. Plus It's such an easy song to play I could sing along at the top of my lungs.

I still have a dream of playing that out someday just to freak people out. I saw Shellac in NYC a couple years ago and they played that as their last song and everyone went nuts. It's a song everyone can relate to.

Hang in there buddy, there probably will be alot of down times but it'll get better I promise.

That really does suck

Do you want a sad song? Try "Don't Cry" by G'n'R

An angry song? I'll have to get back to you on that

A "moving on" song? Try "Good Times Bad Times" by Led Zeppelin. Or "Live and Let Die".

I would lose myself in every hard rocking song I'd ever heard . Here's a few ...

Neon Knights - Black Sabbath
Great White Buffalo , Just What the Doctor Ordered- Ted Nugent
Green Grass and High Tides - the Outlaws
Rock and Roll - Led Zeppelin
I Like to Rock- April Wine
Bad Motor Scooter , Space Station #5 - Montrose
White Punks on Dope - the Tubes
Fool for the City - Foghat
Train , Train - Blackfoot
Kick It Out - Heart
I Wanna Be Sedated - the Ramones
Highway Star - Deep Purple
Hocus Pocus by Focus

And now for some unsolicited advice . GET OVER HER! I went down the foolish road of repeated reconciliations and it was like picking the pick the scab off a really deep wound every time I did . Time will heal you but not if you keep re-opening the wound .
There are decent , trustworthy women out there looking for a decent , trustworthy man . Don't allow yourself to be a safe haven for whenever she needs one . You will only delay the inevitable if you continue to be her doormat . You say you have a trust issue but the truth is : trust is earned , not freely given . Do something to destroy trust and it takes even longer to regain . Move on . Enjoy your newfound freedom . Learn from your mistake and don't repeat it . Life is not over because one person doesn't love you anymore . At some time in 2006 the world population reached 6,500,000,000 . Over half are women !! So little time ...

P.S. I know you hurt right now . It WILL fade . Take care of yourself and get closer to friends and family . They are your support group . Peace be with you , Sid !

If I claim to be a wise man , it surely means that I don't know .

Welcome back sid, man that sucks, i would probably play the loudest most aggressive stuff i could come up with

I think I'd be playing the blues. Enough material there for an album! Sorry to hear about your troubles Sid.

I know love's a powerful emotion, and this is your fiancee we're talking about, but a gambler with a drug habit who's also a proven liar? Doesn't augur well for the future to me....but whatever you decide to do, I hope your fortunes take a turn for the better.

:D :D :D

Vic

This looks like a Blues album to me as well. Or old lonesome country. But in real life you'll want to stay away from doing anything that could get you on a episode of COPS cause no matter how sad and mad and messed up you feel it's just a few wrong decisions from being that shirtless guy in cuffs explaining yourself to a camera and a couple of police critters. Ya, stay off the angry music.

Enjoy your karma, after all you earned it.

Eric Clapton - Reconsider Baby

Used to be, was a part of me felt like hiding.. but now it comes through. Comes through to you.

After that story I'd suggest "Cocaine Blues" by Johnny Cash.

Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.

Sid,

DO NOT go get a blues crying in your beer type music all that will do is make you sad...you need to get loud aggresive angry music..beleive me

Please please please find the Shellac song I mentioned earlier and listen to the words and crnk it up. You can learn the song in five minutes or less and it WILL help you it's all about relationships gone bad..

Diceman is right you need hard rocking songs not those other Thrill is gone crap, that stuff will kill you at a time like this.

Sorry clockworked and Sgin and gadlaw, those are exactly the type he SHOULDN'T listen to!

cnev, I'm not saying you're wrong, as it's just a difference of opinion; but *my* opinion is there's nothing wrong with being sad when it's appropriate.

Reminds me of something the Tao Teh Ching says: "What there is to be shrunken is first stretched out, what there is to be weakened is first made strong." I.e., if you simply let things move as they are, they will naturally reach an extreme and come back the other way. Or in the words of Kramer, fixing the pain in Elaine's neck, "From pain will come pleasure." ;)

I don't think any of us need to get too heated up over what kind of music someone else should listen to or play in a sad situation. He's had some suggestions. He can make his own choice.

But as for the concern about possibly ending up in a suicidal state as before? Man, I'd recommend some counseling.

"A cheerful heart is good medicine."
