Which song do you play first?

In the thread about Stay and how great it is, 2 people said it's the first song they play when they pick up their guitar.

Now let's start a poll:

What's the first song you almost always play first when you pick up your guitar?

For me: In God's Country

Well when I'm playing my acoustic guitar, I always strum the chords from "Stay" first.

With my electric, I usually start out with "Out Of Control" or "Streets"(great finger warmer upper).

3 chords for Desire? The riff only is 4 chords!

Bah.

I really want to learn the new version of Stay that Edge was playing on the Elevation Tour.

It sounds a lot like Satellite of Love at the beginning but then changes back into Stay...

No. D A E A E. Three chords.


First song? I don't know, it changes all the time, but mostly Desire or Nothingman by Pearl Jam.

You're right Henne, I forgot the second A chord... I counted it twice.

When I pick up my bass, I usually start playing the intro to Twilight. Sometimes I'll do Desire or Zoo Station. They're all fun!

Hate to be original , but it's almost always Stay. It just flows so well, and plus it's easy and sounds great.

I've been messing around with A Sort Of Homecoming lately, too.

I looked for the Stay chords but they sounded weird when I played them, maybe I did something wrong; could anyone post the ones they use?

Either "One" or Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here". On the electric, it's often "Where the Streets Have No Name."
