There are lots of songs I play (either playing a CD, or playing guitar....) a lot - but top of the list would be "More Than A Feeling" by Boston, "Nantucket Sleighride" by Mountain, "Brown Sugar" by the Stones and "La Grange" by ZZTop. It's well-nigh impossible to resist the urge to pick up a guitar when any of those are on, and every time I pick up a guitar I'll end up playing at least one of them. Or more!

:D :D :D

Love that tune. I don't play it so well, but only tried a few times. I think my chord chart is very off, because I canot get the feel for it. I'll look for a better one today. I do enjoy and play Down By The River. For some reason, I always pair these two songs together in my head. Don't know why.
I do it's The Warren Haynes & Derek Trucks version of Old Friend.
I don't have that album, but I did stumble across a youtube version. Great song.

    chords for Powderfinger:

    G C G
    then you need the Bm
    and use the D for the finish.

    I just realized that I neglected to make my own entry.....just comments on other's. (Oh, and Nuno: I just heard a cover of Stormy Monday Blues from Clapton on Deep Tracks (satelite radio) that blew me away a couple days ago. Really sweet.)

    OK, so my I listen too often songs. It changes every month....

    Dogs - Pink Floyd
    Hate It When You Leave - Keith Richards
    Melissa - Allmans (version found on You Tube)
    Superstar - Sonic Youth cover of an old Carpenter's tune. Haunting.... you gotta check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRiyN_Zn5L8

    Thanks. That's about what I got. I'm suffering from a timing issue probably. I can do most of the song, but it feels like I'm trying to add something that ain't supposed to be in there....like a few extra strums or something. It's when I go from line to line in the first part of the verses. I know, it's easy....but I can't feel it. Mental block.

    I tend to beat songs to death. A terrible habit and one I can't seem to break.
    Currently on Death Row:

    Dear Mr Fantasy Traffic
    It's a Good Day Peggy Lee
    Dead Flowers Townes Van Zandt (it's the live version over the end credits of The Big Lebowski; really good)
    Step by Step Jesse Winchester
    Into the Great Wide Open Tom Petty

    :)

    I listen to most songs excessively until I can't stand them anymore and then don't listen to them for awhile.

    Mostlly now I listen to the song/songs I am working on either with my teacher or the "band".

    Current list includes:

    Everlong - Foo Fighters
    You got another thing comin - Judas priest
    Four Day Creep - Humble Pie
    Pork and Beans - Weezer
    Hashpipe - Weezer
    Purple Haze - Jimi
    Californicaion - RHCP
    Goin Down - jeff Beck

    A few of these will be dropping off the list soon like the Weezer and RHCP song

    "It's all about stickin it to the man!"
    It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll!
