Starting a band. So far, guitarist/singer (me), bassist and drummer. What should we play?
but learning stuff from other genres can be useful in seeing how the composition works and putting yourselves slightly out of the comfort zone.
Actual answer: Pixies - Tame
but make them all grotty & stripped back & fucked up. Practice them until they're super tight, then practicing until they loosen up again. With twice-weekly sessions this should take you a year or so. Your drummer needs to nail it down really solid, just 4x4 meat & potatoes, a bit of swing but absolutely no frills. I've always wanted to hear someone do for C&W what The Cramps did for rockabilly, you guys might be the ones.
One of you could just sing the Keyboard parts
i've changed my mind to this ???
Actually, The Answer. Any of their songs. They're shit.
