Rock on!

So, today I went out and got myself a new (well, actually, an old and used but cheap) guitar and what I'd love you, my fellow bloggers, to do is to tell me which songs I should learn to play. \m/

  2. @Benjy: How would one go about playing that on a guitar? :D
    @I: That one I'll give a go. At first I didn't know what you were talking about, but then I youtubed it and saw that Clapton and Emmanuel played it. It's a good track.

  8. Being a guitarist, I'd say learn how to read sheet music first. It'll help you A LOT if you're serious about playing guitar + most of them are easy songs such as Mary Had a Little Lamb which will at least get you started. Go for easy songs first, instead of killing yourself going for months trying to learn just one song. A lot of Green Day songs are pretty simple, such as Time of your Life or Minority.

  9. @Fadeleaf: I might try that.
    @gimpel: Yup, already know that one.
    @Erixsson: I know that one already.
    @P. Davis: Ok. :D
    @Diego: Thanks! :)
    @Gryt: Oh, but I'm not a beginner. :D I just lack the inspiration, don't know what to play. :D

  10. Nirvana - Come as you are - the first guitar song I ever learned to play, and you can tune your guitar by it.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Not a bad idea. I'll also do The man who sold the world. :)

  12. The first thing that came to my mind was something similar Jimi Hendrix's version of Hey Joe. Just because if I played guitar that's what I'd aspire to be able to play. Simple sounding song with plenty of work into it.

  13. Awesome! If you've never played guitar before house of the rising sun is nice and easy or anything by oasis cos their songs are all like 3 chords and real simple.

    Good luck and you should post a video when you learn a song!

  14. @D4: Already know Hey, Joe. But Little wing would do! :)
    @h: Oh no. I play for a long long time but I do suck. :D

  15. I think learning chords first is the best idea... or Freebird. :P

    ReplyDelete
  17. Puff the magic dragon and smoke on the water are must-knows!!! Good luck sir

    @Avery: Everybody knows Smoke on the water! ;D

  19. How about the spiderman theme song?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Enter Sandman-Metallica

    Long to learn but well worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Shutterbug: Spiderpig more like it! :D
    @Forty: Not bad!

  22. I suggest learning "Dust in the wind" by Kansas (on classical guitar, but watch out- this tune it's quite exhausting to play), very nice hand and tempo (pulse) exercise and it is a nice and calm melody.
    Next one... I don't know. Some Gary Moore: "Empty Rooms", "Over the hills and far away". Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  32. @Mekkor: I'm somewhere in between. And we're talking acoustic here so tapping is out of the question. :D
    @Erika: You know, I might try some kind of a wicked cover of it.

  52. Try to learn that Blue Oyster Cult song so you have an excuse to bring someone in with a cowbell and yell out "we need more cowbell" (sorry for the bad misquote, I haven't seen that skit in so long).

    I'm sorry I have no true suggestions. My iphone is filled with classical/minimalist/ambient music. Nothing too fun for guitarists.

  53. Dude, if you do "Baby I Love Your Way" by Peter Frampton, I will LOVE you.
