I mentioned in the other thread that I wrote a riff tonight that felt stolen ... and I was partially right. After searching, I realized I'd written a similar riff to that of "Time Goes Back" by John Frusciante. But it has enough distance and a different vocal melody that I can get away with it, which pleases me.

I've got five finished songs for my upcoming acoustic album now.

I thought 11OTT was piss-easy, besides the solo - I could do the solo, but not that spectacularly. I'm completely incompetent with chords, so something like Gone's not that attractive for me to play. The first three albums and other songs from the time period are all really fun.

Awesome. I had 6 months of lessons from my dad, and taught myself the rest of the way.

I like to think that I've developed my own sound, but probably not.

It really is pretty easy. The solo has given me trouble more because I haven't found many good tabs of it than anything. The rest is very easy.

Ultraviolet and the ZooTV version of Bullet are the only two U2 songs I can't play technically.

LNOE with some fuzz is the best.

My style is very choppy chords. Example: the Ziggy Stardust Live version of Moonage Daydream's chorus, where Ronson plays three chords, all very choppy. That's how I play a lot of chords.

The titles, by the way:
Last Stand
I Fall Down
Fireworks
Quiet Soul
Floating in Between

I also have a few works in progress: Buildings Fall/Rubble, Chaos, and American Yellow.

Cool. Be sure to upload it somehow so B&C-goers can tear it to shreds.

I am seriously working on a rock opera right now. And I'm about 4 songs away from finishing it.

How is Ultra Violet hard?

And ZooTV Bullet, if you could get it, looks like it would be so much fun to play.

Personally, I wish I'd learnt The Electric Co. I never got around to it when I played regularly, and nowadays, well, I haven't touched the guitar in about 3 years.

Not that hard at all. You could learn it easily.

An Cat Dubh is another favorite of mine. The middle section is perfect for jamming.

All of my songs are lyrics I wrote first, and then wrote music around. I think that's backwards from the typical writing style.

Each set of lyrics has a specific mindset I was in. Three of those songs are dedicated to girls, one is in character, one is religious, one is a critique of a particular classmates delve into alcohol, and two have no meaning whatsoever.

Guys, my band is better than yours.

Except for the part where it only exists in my head.

Oh yes, that was another one of my favourites to play. In fact, I probably played it the most. It's awesome.

I don't know. I just suck at it. It has no basic chords, which is where my bread and butter is, so I'm not too good at it.

I've worked out half the solo, and it's a lot of fun. I wish I had a decent amp and some pedals, cause then it would really rock.

Electric Co. is easy. The intro, the solo, the verses, the chorus, the outro ... man it kicks a lot of ass.
