La Grange - ZZ Top

Excellent & fun song to play, Dave!

Stuff I've been working on lately:
- Waiting for the Bus/Jesus Just Left Chicago - ZZ Top
- Highway Star - Deep Purple
- Lunatic Fringe - Red Ryder

One of the guys in my band has gone synth crazy so the last two should be fun when the band gets together to play them.

I like to practice as many songs that I have learned to play, but at the moment I have been playing a lot of "A Whole Lotta Rosie", "Thunderstruck", and I am trying to learn "Riff Raff", but I have to say Riff Raff would have to be one of the hardest AC/DC songs to play, it's very fast, with a lot of tricky riffs.

Bear in mind, I am only a rhythm player with a year of experience (lead guitar is way too hard for me).

I'm currently playing with 4 different line-ups, so I've been trying to keep up with all the different set lists. Of course, the different line-ups have some overlapping members and one is an acoustic duo that plays mainly simple 3 and 4 chord songs. I pretty much just learn enough to fake my way through them on my own, and if we get a rehearsal I will work on a specific way to play it with the band.

Some of the diverse songs I've been trying to cram are:
Billy Jean [blush] , Valerie-Amy Winehouse, Honesty-Billy Joel, Uptown Funk, Black Velvet, Takin It To The Streets, Jesse's Girl, Dreams-FM, Black Friday-Steely Dan, Beginnings-Chicago,......

I could go on with more but I should start practicing. :rolleyes:

Well, I'm finally back in a band now after 20 years. Trouble is...they want me to pull my weight and sing a few songs. So far I've been put on notice to sing "Take It Easy" and "Tequila Sunrise" by the Eagles, and "Take It On The Run" by REO Speedwagon. I suck at singing right now, so I have a lot of work ahead...

I'm currently working on Crossroads by Cream. I got the rhythm part down pretty well and working on the solo parts. It's a song I've always liked but just never have taken the time to learn it. It's really fun trying to get the right sound out of my guitar and amp to get it to sound as close as I can and adding a little of my own flair in the song.

I've been working on Neil Youngs Out on the Weekend. I've recorded it OK.

I also like Feels Like Rain by John Haitt, that needs work on the arrangement.

I suck at fingerpicking so I am learning Martha Wainwright's Coming Round the Bend to strengthen that skill.

I spend a lot of time in my room with my instruments brooding and s%^t. It's cheaper than therapy.

I worked on Cold Shot by Stevie Ray Vaughan over the weekend and what a cool groove that song has and his playing is really fun. The rhythm part is down, working on the lead parts this week. It's not difficult and really fun to play.

'Six Blade Knife' from Dire Straits' debut album.

It's a pretty tune and fundamentally simple to play (the improv. noodling is the root of it's appeal!) but for those who look up the 'net for chord sequences a word to the wise;
I looked at a couple and for the chorus section both sites listed Dm, C, (G) G, D but listening to the track it's actually Dm, C, (F) G, D.

I got "Nowhere Man" as an earworm a week ago so it seemed like a good time to work on it. Besides, I haven't played the Strat through the Vox amp in a long time.

As of the weekend I've decided it's really about time I wrangled with Johnny B Goode.
