or what song do you play the most? Also could someone suggest some songs that start with a B chord please.
i nearly always play "needle and the damage done" by Neil Young. It's just so nice to play!!
Neil Young is the master of simple things sounding amazing. i'm going to look up needle and the damage done now. (apologies to mr young for when i brutalise it)
Airbag. Song with B start, off the top of my head, Samson by Regina.
usually. Though recently its been Battery.
mostly 'kracked', 'little fury things', 'almost ready' and 'the lung'.
and 'avon' by queens of the stone age! i fucking love playing 'avon'!
then I put the guitar down for people who can actually play.
but the first chord i play is always A minor, and it's usually followed by E
i do tend to continue that chord sequence into Things Behind The Sun by Nick Drake (although that's played with a capo on 4)
i even try to do it on the bass sometimes. then i notice the missing strings
it's soooo fucking satisfying to play that song.
genrally. It's like my guitar hand in neutral before I put it into first.
at the moment I just can't help play the guitar line from 'Carousel' off the last Iron and Wine album...it's just so...flowy.
or Cliffs of Dover by Eric Johnson.
Jansch is incredible. You've also reminded me that I'm going to see Pentangle at the end of June. Cannot. Fucking. Wait.
but at the moment usually range life or the black amnesias
Then morning theft by Jeff Buckley or that wicked riff at the start of airbag
or Slice Where You Live Like Pie by Don Caballero
also, corona by the minutemen.
brilliant riff and i think the first chord is B.
pretty much always Neon, by John Mayer. Drop C tuning though
Lion's Mane by Iron & Wine, coz it's nice and easy but sounds really good.
The Bends. The noisy guitar at the start and then into the cleaner verse then that awesome guitar solo by Greenwood
Or the riff from More than a Feeling
....well it is the greatest song ever
, if any, because its the first song i learn't to play. And it's piss easy.
because i'm a fud. Normally Come As You Are or SLTS because i'm ovb a cliched bastart
It involves Am, my favourite chord, and cos it's fast it makes me sound like I play better than I really do.
in all it's three chord glory was first.
Queen Bitch by Bowie most. Maybe Ziggy.
It starts with a little scale run.
mostly songs by Muse, Feeder and Hole as they were my fave bands at 16 <3
by Mazzy Star, I'm shit at guitar (as in can't play in the slightest) but i remember this being the first song I learnt properly so if i ever pick one up this is it.
i like to play that too
the sweet little guitar riff in it is just too beautiful, and fairly easy to play!
also: shadowplay by joy division
is lovely to play if it's an acoustic. "Into Your Arms". Or The Cure's "Just Like Heaven", which "Into Your Arms" cheekily borrows a rather amazing chord change from.
Its Lemonheads - Hannah and Gabbi.
I meant "It's About Time", not "Into Your Arms". Dyslexic drunken madness there.
or This Charming Man.
but usually it's the Knights Of Cydonia opening riff
Either Neil Young's 'Heart Of Gold' or 'Who's Gonna Shoe Your Pretty Feet'.
ball and biscuit by white stripes. jammy and lovably sloppy
SORRY. Occasionally 'Awful Bliss' by Guided By Voices. I don't really play songs by other people anymore. SORRY.
then once I've warmed up I'll get all tech with some Status Quo
usually start with a few scales and a bit of fingerwork to warm up.
then i maybe work on some stuff for my band.
i find that if i learn anyone elses songs, i become anti-creative. anyone else find this?
I use other people's work to develop my own by just taking a little musical phrase or something and expanding on it in one way or another, turning into something new!
it's all i can play on guitar, so i just play it over and over again :D
me guitars tuned. acoustic of late it's been 'Black waterside'. Always play a few bars of 'little wing' or 'Stone free' electricwise, or play along to whatevers on the wireless.
always try and play something ive never played/heard before, never works so on goes the distortion and the Iron Maiden gallop.
by the mars volta, the ladies love it cause it sounds like julio iglesias or some shit!
I was into the verve at the time I decided to pick up a guitar and also i was decidedly easier to try their songs than try and start off with some Zeppelin/Hendrix. Also quite a lot of Beatles numbers.
the verve and oasis are what I learnt to play when I first picked up a guitar.
Now when I play I seem to play a lot of Creedence and Arcade Fire.
Stuck Inside Of Mobile... by Bob Dylan or Fade Into You by Mazzy Star.
If you'd asked me this 10 years ago I'd have said Wonderwall.
that i'd been thinking about most recently
Better Man or Rearviewmirror
Born Under a Bad Sign by Hendrix as it's a blues in B.
Also Steady as She Goes I think that's in B.
Nowdays... Just pretty much anything (bar Dragonforce!)
is up with this piece of shit website?
hunted by a freak - mogwai
NYC - interpol
not the most taxing pieces
By Interpol or Fine + 2pts by Minus the Bear
Songs with a B Chord are gay, its all about B Minor
Such a great simple riff with many satisfying hammer ons and pull offs.
out of touch with what actually play, the first things I'll do to warm up is play <ahem> 'are you gonna go my way', the cock rock riff by Lenny "fucking" Kravitz, or the theme tune from Top Gun, or Geek USA by the pumpkins, fretwanktastic before I have to get down to being all moody and introspective.
by Orange Juice is what I always play when I pick up a guitar, for some reason. Or "Day Tripper".
then widdle about on the top strings, tunelessly, for a bit. Then I just hit the open E whilst harmonising with it on the other strings. Then I get bored and put the guitar down.
the first song from South of Boredom by Beezewax, very nice sounding chords.
