"Sitting waiting wishing" Jack Johnson.

The guitars easy but the vocal melody is a nightmare to get right!

playing whilst drunk is only permitted if all band members are in a similar state!

Studying Kirk Lorange's "Plane Talk" book and DVD. Excellent stuff, even better than I expected after reading Nick's review on GN.

Started working on some alternative-tuning Christmas songs, including some of the Celtic stuff Doug Sparling has posted. I know, it's only April, but I'm slow.

And, just for fun, "Killing in the Name" by Rage Against the Machine. Funky little riff!

I'm currently trying to find an arrangement for Audioslave's "Like a Stone" that suits my vocal range, and it's the same problem tenfold. I've already changed the single note melody to full chords and shifted it down 5 frets, and it's still got bits I can't manage cleanly... I might have to add this one to the come-back-when-you're-better list as well :)

It's been so long that I only remember them all as "the one that goes da da da" :) If it's the same one, I used to race my bassist on that little opening riff while we waited for everyone else in the band to stop bickering... great fun :)

LOL, you give me too much credit. Slow it is! Actually my goal is to learn to play them without the music in front of me; I do okay when I've got the tabs, but I really want to be able to pick up the guitar and play a bunch of these Holiday songs. Time and practice, time and practice ...

It definitely goes "da da da" but a lot of Rage songs did that. :lol:

I know that one. I'm writing my own simple version of a wiki at the moment just so that I haev access to a list of things I can play. I can manage about 10 or so without anything in front of me, but I can only ever remember a couple when I get the chance :) Might have to tape a list to the inside of my gig bag or something....

*Edit: Ahh, damn my feeble memory, it was Bombtrack I was thinking of :roll: *

*Edit 2: Hmmm, I'm fairly sure I didn't type 'darn'... :lol: *
