House Of The Rising Sun

 

Not really wanting to reveal my age but House of the Rising Sun is the song that made me want an electric guitar. [smile]

Beginners don't need no stinkin' songs !! [tongue]

 

Just strum a BIG FAT open G chord or an open E chord and let the guitar do the singin'

 

Then intersperse an open D chord to check the intonation of the guitar.

 

Save all songs fer when yer sittin' on yer couch watchin' TV [tongue]

 

Harmonics101

 

But if you HAVE to play a song and yer not too hung up on it, I'd say Amazing Grace pretty much would get what you want as well

Did you ever hear the version Jake E Lee did on his Retraced album? :)

Not until just now. Nice, but I still prefer the PH version. Both good though (didn't really care for the Leslie West version though).

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama

Green Day - Time of your life

Foo fighters - The Pretender

 

All pretty basic songs, perhaps except some bits of Sweet Home Alabama and The Pretender for beginners msp_thumbup.gif

if i were to be in a music shop full of vintage guitars, i'd get a fender strat through a tweed amp of the same era, get a slide and play in open G tooning!
