Roadside (Rise Against) -Guitar not too good for a beginner like myself and Vocals I would say I’m pretty good :)

Just adding a few new numbers to my repertoir, which is something I do whenever I hear a song and it strikes me as something interesting. The next additions will be “Ironic” by Alanis Morissette and “Jumping Jack Flash” by the Stones.

Song 2

I’m learning them all on drums, but most of the people I am playing them with are learning the vocals, bass, guitars and some synthesizer.

New Born (Muse) guitar and piano
The Writhing South (Say Anything) guitar and vocals
Billy Jean (Michael Jackson) bass

I like a lot of the answers I’ve seen so far. I’m looking forward to finding some more inspiration from this.

I just finished Exo-Politics by Muse on drums

DeanV's avatar

@Tink1113 That’s a fun one. It was one of the first ones I learned.

Tink's avatar

Yeah I really liked it when I first heard it, I bet playing it on guitar would be challenging

Grisaille's avatar

L’via L’viaquez is pretty interesting to play on guitar, as is Falling Down (one of my favorite songs). Never tried Exo-pol.

Tink's avatar

Never heard of Exo-politics?!

Grisaille's avatar

Never tried.


Tink's avatar

Oh phew :)
I would like to play it on guitar but I’m currently learning another one. And if I try to, I’ll forget the other one

You know, I’d love to learn the bass line to the theme of the old US 70s cop comedy programme, Barney Miller. It’s just so utterly bad-ass. Listen to this guy play the whole thing.

A lot of 70s shows had really great jazzy theme tunes, didn’t they?
