what song do you find people request of you the most?

for me it's the theme to king of the hill. people love this tune. (i play it on accustic using octives for the main riff.) after i play it once for people, they request it every time i play for them again.

Freebird

Who needs a signature?
I mean really...
It's almost always lyrics...
or a cliche...
or garbage about me...
Lets just save YOU from the pain, ok?

Being in Texas, and no matter whether you're a rock band, blues band or country band, you will ALWAYS be asked to play 'Silver Wings'.............. I purposely never learned it.... and I never will!!! :D

I am asked to play Stairway to Heaven by almost everyone I know for some reason. Funny because very few of my friends even know who Led Zeppelin is :roll:

I guess the two most requested songs on earth would be 'Happy Birthday' and 'All you need is love'.

Playing out I have been asked to play Skynyrd the most by far, especially Sweet Home Alabama and Freebird. People ask for Mustang Sally a lot too.

And of course there is always the "Metallica!!!" and "Pantera!!!" :roll:

In the middle of the Riverside Jam we did at that Blues Bar place a couple summers ago, one of the audience asked "Hey man, you know Skynyrd's Simple Man?" I said no, but someone probably did. His response was "Hey man, don't get pissed!" (never figured that out). Clearly, I should have sent him over to you, Wes.
